STAR-STUDDED PREMIERE OF TLC'S "LONG ISLAND MEDIUM" BRINGS IN 2.6M P2+ VIEWERS
The premiere was the series' highest-rated and most-watched season premiere in four seasons
Theresa Caputo brought the sprit in the season 6B premiere of LONG ISLAND MEDIUM. The celebrity episode was the highest-rated season premiere in four seasons with HH, all key Adults and Women demos (P/W25-54/18-49/18-34) and was the most-watched with P2+ viewers. Attracting the hard to reach younger demo, the season 6B premiere nearly doubled its season 6A premiere with W18-34. With emotional readings and unbelievable revelations, the January 3rd premiere was the series' most-watched episode since November 2013 with P2+ viewers.
This Sunday's hour-long episode follows Theresa and Larry as they continue their vacation in Florida. Theresa surprises a family who lost their son in a tragic accident, and the messages she receives bring them all to tears. Theresa also goes on a golfing adventure with Larry, but there's an unexpected turn of events when spirit shows up in an unlikely place.
Throughout this season, each episode focuses on a special theme, from tragedy in the line of duty and haunted homes to holidays and weddings. During a moving episode, Theresa salutes heroic police officers and firefighters, as she reads people whose lives were turned upside down in the line of duty - some by the devastating events of September 11th. Theresa continues to give her clients the best gift of all - emotional reunions with family and friends.
LONG ISLAND MEDIUM is produced by Magilla Entertainment.
