TLC Upfront Promotes Jon & Kate Plus 8 New Season
What I love about these Upfronts is learning about all the new shows that each Channel will be bringing up for the new season. And while my favorite second show Project Runway was just sadly announced to Lifetime after months of speculation, TLC is now promising 19 NEW shows for its new season. Sadly most of them are Makeover Shows and variations of such. TLC is reworking its scheduling strategy, giving each night of the week a “theme,” with programming that fits within that theme. The network also unveiled its 2008-09 programming lineup. You can see some of the new line-up HERE. Of course other New TLC starts will be of all people Jennifer Lopez & Kelly Rips for their new SHOWS. I just find it so funny the people criticize family's for getting TV shows and now even the biggest celebrities will be on the new TLC lineup. More of the list is below:
"TLC announced today that Jon & Kate Plus 8 will return for a fifth season. The popular show that attracted record ratings for its March 23 finale will join a busy roster of returning programs, such as 18 Kids and Counting, A Baby Story, American Chopper, What Not to Wear, and Little People, Big World."
"The cable network has also introduced a host of new series -- more than 19 in all -- that will help fill its schedule in the coming year. They include The Little Couple (a series about newlyweds Bill Klein and Jen Arnold, both of whom are under 4-feet tall); Freakin Fabulous With Clinton Kelly (a fashion show based on his book of the same name); Making Over America With Trinny & Susannah (featuring the original U.K. hosts of What Not to Wear), The General (featuring an interior-designer-turned-contractor), and Mom, Inc. (a new series from Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos that helps struggling entrepreneurs)."So the biggest news which everyone already knew was that Season 5 is a big go. Jon & Kate both attended the Upfronts together. Jon said to "expect the unexpected," and Kate added that "[the family will] be taking a very exciting trip in the near future. Not to give it away, but it'll take us back to our roots." Hmm. So while everyone is speculating a big trip to Korea in the future, what other surprises can be along the way? I'm thinking more reflection as a family and a big haha to all the people that wished their show would end simply because of jealousy. I for one can't wait.
