TLC Stocks Up On ‘My 600-lb Life’

TLC announced today the renewal of My 600-lb Life, which it says follows “the transformational journeys of individuals each weighing over 600 pounds and attempting to regain control of their lives.” TLC notes Season 3’s 1.2 rating among women 25-54 was its highest date in that demo. The series averaged 1.4 million viewers overall; if you missed the drama, you can catch the reruns weekdays at 11 AM ET.

TLC has ordered, from Megalomedia, 10 more episodes of “compelling weight loss” for Q1 2016. Each one-hour episode tracks a year in the life of one morbidly obese person undergoing gastric bypass surgery and grappling with “the highs and lows of struggling with addiction and dependence.”

In the first half of 2014, TLC had 25 series averaging at least 1 million total viewers, including six that averaged 2 million viewers or more: The Little Couple, 19 Kids And Counting, Return To Amish, Sister Wives, Long Island Medium and 90 Day Fiancé. The network is part of Discovery Communications and available in more than 95 million homes in the U.S. and 352 million households in 185 markets internationally.
