"Our viewers know what they want from TLC, and we know what to give them - the shows that make them feel something, and people they can root for. This emotional connection is essential to our brand," said Nancy Daniels, General Manager, TLC. "This year, we'll continue to propel our growth with more programming that features families of all shapes and sizes, heartwarming transformative experiences, and relatable life moments - stories that only TLC can tell."
