The 9:30pm season three premiere of LONG ISLAND MEDIUM was the #1 ad-supported cable telecast in delivery in Prime on Sunday night among P2+, beating Lifetime's ARMY WIVES and DROP DEAD DIVA, Bravo's REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY, E!'s KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS and AMC's HELL ON WHEELS.

LONG ISLAND MEDIUM follows psychic-medium Theresa Caputo and her family as she conducts private and group readings, with both believers and skeptics. As she goes about her day, Theresa is also compelled to spontaneously give messages to people anywhere she goes. Between the spirit world and our world, there is Theresa's world, where she is simply trying to strike a happy medium between her family life, work life, and the afterlife.

BREAKING AMISH provides a never-before-seen look inside the lives of young men and women as they, for the first time, trade horse and buggy with taxi cabs to break out from their respective Amish/Mennonite communities in their pursuit to chase big dreams in the Big Apple.

LONG ISLAND MEDIUM and BREAKING AMISH return this Sunday with all-new episodes at 9PM/ET and 10PM/ET respectively.
