Returning favorites and new series make for a perfect 'staycation'

LOS ANGELES, April 27 -- TLC kicks off its all-new summer schedule starting Memorial Day with a week of new series launches and the return of two fan-favorites, it was announced today by the network's President & GM Eileen O'Neill. From hit series JON & KATE PLUS 8 and WHAT NOT TO WEAR - featuring its first celebrity makeover - to brand-new series CAKE BOSS and THE LITTLE COUPLE, TLC gives viewers the hottest destination for any staycation.

"TLC's new summer schedule is filled with relatable people in remarkable situations, sharing a window into other lives for viewers to escape and enjoy," explains O'Neill. "It's a great time of the year to bring back two of our biggest series, and use that attention to launch new shows that we think will also become fan-favorites."

On Monday, May 25 at 9 PM ET/PT, JON & KATE PLUS 8 will premiere its fifth season. Viewers will continue to follow the Gosselin family, comprised of parents Jon & Kate, plus eight-year-old twins and a set of sextuplets, as the family celebrates the sextuplets' fifth birthday, tackle training the new puppies, and much more. The pop culture phenomenon's season four finale was the most watched yet with more than 4.6 million viewers, and this season the show will debut its 100th episode.

Immediately following at 10 PM ET/PT will be the series premiere of CAKE BOSS, focusing on master baker Buddy Valastro as he struggles to make his bakery in Hoboken, NJ a household name. Can his big Italian family help the celebrated cake-maker turn his father's dream into a reality?
