LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- TLC's "Wreck Chasers" is getting a new time slot and a new network.
Originally set to launch Thursday, October 28 at 10:00/9:00c, network sources confirm the newcomer will now roll out Monday, November 1 at 8:00/7:00c on sibling Discovery.
The six-episode series, which follows wreck chasing - "a multi-million dollar business in which tow truck drivers compete to claim wrecks and collect cash," will lead into repeats of "American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior," which likewise is getting a showcase on the network.
MY Tupelo Entertainment is behind the project.
Meanwhile, TLC has quietly tabled its freshman entry "Auctioneer$." Various repeats will fill in for the series, which was halfway through its eight-episode run, on Saturday nights at 10:00/9:00c. Said move comes a week after the cable channel pulled fellow newcomer "Kick Off Cook Off" (Thursdays at 10:00/9:00c) after just one broadcast.
