DESCRIPTIONS

Cake Boss

Season four continues with all new episodes featuring some of the bakery crew's biggest cakes ever - including for NASA and a Transformers-themed cake for GM. Buddy is also balancing the demands of a newborn with the ongoing growth of Carlo's and the launch of their new cake factory.

Freaky Eaters

In an all-new season, the series continues to tell the story individuals as they confront the painful truth behind their food obsessions and come face to face with the destructive side effects. In each episode, two experts, Psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow and Nutrition Specialist J.J. Virgin, stage a food intervention in a bid to help this individual overcome the culinary compulsion.

Surprise Homecoming

The series, hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, presents a series of surprise military homecomings. In each episode, viewers will watch as soldiers return home to the delight of their loved ones, paying off each personal story with "the" moment so sweet and raw that it cuts through, connecting us as fathers, mothers, husbands, and wives.

The Little Couple

Bill & Jen return with an all-new season, which picks up with them continuing their difficult journey to start a family. They are also completing building their house, and prepare for Jen's parents to move to Houston. The couple also explores launching a new business, while balancing their already-hectic schedules.

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding

The hit UK series paints a visually arresting portrait of the secretive, extravagant and surprising world of gypsies and travellers in Britain today, by following their extraordinary rite-of-passage events - including weddings, communions and christenings. Each episode gives insights into the community's attitudes toward gender roles, education and outsiders. The series also explores the remarkable rituals, traditions and beliefs held by this minority group.

Niecy Nash's Wedding Bash!

The special follows Niecy Nash as she plans her wedding and celebrates her special day with fiance Jay Tucker. TLC will join the couple as they search for their venue, discover the perfect dress, and ultimately, get married. The entire wedding experience will air as a two-hour television event days after the ceremony.

NY Ink

Tattoo artist Ami James leaves the warm sunny shores of Miami for the cold hard concrete and steel of New York City. The series follows Ami as he opens a shop, risking his reputation and finances on a huge new space, while recruiting an elite staff of artists whose personalities are as big as their tattoo skills.
