HIT SERIES "LONG ISLAND MEDIUM" RETURNS TO TLC ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 3 at 9/8c
New season-long contest culminates in surprise visit from Theresa live on the air
(New York, NY) - On Sunday, August 3, TLC brings back everyone's favorite medium with the biggest hair, nails, and personality to match . At 9/8c, the new season kicks off with an all-new LONG ISLAND MEDIUM: ON THE ROAD, as Theresa makes her way around the bright and bustling city of Las Vegas, surprising very deserving people with much needed readings. Throughout the entire season, viewers will have their very own chance to win a reading from Theresa and get the surprise of their lives as she visits the lucky winner at home live on the air.
The new season features even more powerful group, personal, and spontaneous readings, including a moving session with veterans. The Caputo clan gets a bit smaller when Larry Jr. finally leaves the nest, but can Theresa convince him to make an honest woman out of girlfriend Leah before he moves out of the house? And in an effort to spruce up Nick's dilapidated truck while simultaneously playing a prank on him, Theresa "borrows" the car and gives Nick's locally-legendary vehicle a complete makeover. Larry also signs up for a charity motorcycle event with the hopes that Theresa will not only attend, but will finally take a ride with him on the back of his bike. On the health front, as Theresa starts to realize that the back half of her forties isn't always fabulous, her doctor advises her to schedule a routine colonoscopy. Believing that it's better to be safe than sorry, Theresa agrees and quickly becomes the butt of Larry's jokes. And as Theresa tries to balance work, family, travel, and spirit, she finds the time to give back this season, with appearances and readings at various events and fundraisers, supporting causes including Autism and the LGBT community. The series will also celebrate its 100th episode during this upcoming run.
