DESCRIPTION OF NETWORK:
Still a non-fiction network, and other than the TURBO nights, more after the women than men. Less "get better and learn this"...now more like "let's look at THIS! (and we might learn something)" Fashion, extreme families and medicine, tattoos and property describes them pretty well these days. Here's how they describe it in one line: "TLC is an affirmative and connective experience."
