Tag: TLC (1-10 of 23)
TLC will go home — quite literally — with Leah Remini in a new unscripted show dubbed Leah Remini: It’s All Relative.
The cable net ordered 12 episodes of the series that’ll bow Thursday, July 10, at 10/9c. Remini will be featured in the show, as will her husband Angelo, their 9 year-old daughter Sofia, mother Vicki, stepfather George, sister Shannon and her husband, William. There is also a British nanny named Trish, a friend/handyman/security guy named Lou, and Leah’s personal assistant Raffy.
“I’m so happy to be opening my home to TLC and to be sharing my family with you,” said Remini in a statement. “We are blessed to be given this opportunity to work together as a family. However, beware – In these last 13 weeks of working on the show, my mother and stepfather already feel they are the true talent and breakouts of the show and expect to be offered sitcoms.”

It’s been nearly three years since TLC cameras followed Kate Gosselin and her family for the final season of Kate Plus Eight. But now that her youngest kids — the sextuplets who helped Gosselin and her ex-husband, Jon, score a reality series in the first place — are turning 10, the network is revisiting the clan for a new special.
In a trailer for the two-part Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10, the kids — the three boys and three girls who are celebrating their tenth birthday and their older twin sisters — have definitely grown up since the last time we saw them. But it looks like some things never change — namely, Kate’s assertive, my-way-or-the-highway nature.
When daughter Mady speaks out of turn, Kate banishes her from the living room. The girl is given a chance for “last redemption,” but is also mocked by Kate for moping on her way back to the couch. Eek. If you’re going to put your parenting on display, could you possibly try appearing less cold toward your children? READ FULL STORY
Leah Remini is getting her own reality show.
TLC announced Wednesday that the former King of Queens star will be the subject of an upcoming 12-episode reality series that will chronicle Remini’s home life.
“Leah is a no-nonsense, hard-working, relatable mom, wife, daughter, and sister. Her sharp humor and unfiltered family are a perfect match for the network,” said Nancy Daniels, the network’s general manager. “This series continues our focus on creating compelling series about remarkable families, using heart and humor to anchor it to the TLC brand.”
Remini, who appeared on Dancing With the Stars last season, made headlines last year when she very publicly broke her ties with the Church of Scientology.
The half-hour show is set to debut in summer. No stranger to inviting cameras into her personal life, Remini previously co-produced and starred in two VH1 specials about her wedding and having a baby.
Pulling in 4.5 million viewers Monday night, VH1 scored the highest-rated original cable movie of 2013 with CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, the biopic that chronicles the R&B group’s rise to fame. CrazySexyCool scored a 2.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic and a 5.5 rating for women 18-34, making it VH1’s highest-rated original movie ever.
In addition to ratings, CrazySexyCool also took hold of Twitter: According to SocialGuide, the TV movie was the most-tweeted program on TV last night, generating 1.92 million tweets with the hashtag #CrazySexyCool.
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story tells the story of Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas (KeKe Palmer), Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (Lil Mama), and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins (Drew Sidora) and how they became one of the best-selling female groups of all time before losing one of their own.
Tonight, TLC gives us this year’s second and final Extreme Cougar Wives special, which introduces us to 70-year-old Loma, who loves younger men because they’re so fun and energetic. Sure, some of her statements could’ve been worded more carefully: “They want to overpower you, and every woman wants to be overpowered whether she admits it or not.” But others are damn near perfect: “If he’s in his 20s or his 30s and he wants to buck me, we’re gonna have a good time.” (New ringtone.) Spoiler alert: You will see Loma go on a blind double date with her granddaughter.

What Not to Wear begins its 10th and final season Friday (10 p.m. ET on TLC), and Stacy London and Clinton Kelly have their work cut out for them as they take on three friends, one of whom believes it’s good to dress like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman because “it worked out for her.” Watch a clip below and think about how much you’re going to miss that mirrored room, Stacy’s facial reactions, and Clinton’s barbs (“This looks like a couple of honeydews being squeezed into a condom”).

Break out the sketti: A new season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will premiere July 17, the network announced today.
TLC says this season will see the outrageous family participating in “butter rolling, tap dancing lessons and wrestling events.” It will likely also showcase behind-the-scenes moments of Mama June and Sugar Bear’s wedding — the longtime couple exchanged vows yesterday.
The show, which first premiered last August as a spin-off of Toddlers & Tiaras, averaged 2.3 millions viewers last season. Most recently, the show aired special “holladay” episodes this winter featuring the Thompson family celebrating the holidays.
Today, TLC announced a slate of new series, none of which involve strange addictions. The rundown:
• Women of Homicide: It tails the most elite female homicide detectives in the country. This is as close as you’re going to get to guilt-free TLC programming, because…
• Alaskan Women Looking for Love (working title): This one follows five women, some of whom have never left Alaska, who travel to Miami in search of men. We look forward to the bikini shopping montage.
• Husband Hunters: These women have everything picked out for their weddings but the grooms.
• My Teen Is Pregnant And So Am I: The special becomes a series, which means this must happen a lot. READ FULL STORY
