TLC BRINGS BACK NEW SEASONS OF "TODDLERS & TIARAS" AND "I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT"
New Episodes Begin Wednesday, June 15 with a TODDLERS AND TIARAS Showdown
(New York, NY) - On Wednesday, June 15, TLC brings back the hit series TODDLERS AND TIARAS for a fourth season starting at 10pm ET/PT. With two of the fiercest competitors in TODDLERS AND TIARAS history, the season premiere promises to be the most intense one yet. It's the fan-favorite Universal Royalty Pageant, and this time it's a Totally 80's theme. This Texas pageant is going to be the Ultimate Showdown between the two most famous pageant girls - MaKenzie and Eden - as they compete for the coveted Ultimate Grand Supreme crown. At stake, a grand prize of a big princess pink canopy bed and $1000 in cash prizing. Five-year-old pageant personality MaKenzie and her mom Juana are back for more high glitz meltdowns, while MaKenzie is still as entertaining and unpredictable as ever. Meanwhile, six-year-old self-proclaimed "pageant superstar" Eden, along with her passionate pageant mom Mickie, talk about Eden's most recent accomplishments: a book, TV appearances, a mall tour and even a new album. TLC has ordered 18 hour-long episodes. Season 3 premieres averaged 1.4 million P2+ viewers.
The following Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at 9PM ET/PT, TLC brings back a new season of I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT, an intense series that reveals the astonishing stories of women who conceive and carry their babies all the way to labor and delivery while never even knowing they were pregnant. Shocking stories this season include a woman who doesn't know she is pregnant with twins after she takes the morning after pill and months later finds out in the ER that she is in labor with both babies breeched. Also featured is a woman who gives birth at a rest stop, a woman who is only 115 pounds when she goes into labor and gives birth, and a woman who gives birth not only in her sweat pants but also in the back of her car. The network has ordered 25 half-hour episodes for Season 4.
TODDLERS AND TIARAS is produced by Authentic Entertainment for TLC.
I DIDN'T KNOW I WAS PREGNANT is produced by Mike Mathis Productions for TLC.
