TLC GETS COMPETITIVE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS
The competition heats up on Wednesday, December 19th with TLC premiering the all-new series CHEER PERFECTION, documenting the world of competitive cheerleading. From the producers of the hit series TODDLERS & TIARAS and HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO (Authentic Entertainment), this series airing at 10pm follows these pint-sized athletes of all-star cheerleading as they compete through drama, pressure and their highly competitive mothers in hopes of displaying cheer perfection. The network ordered eight episodes to series, directly following the July one-off that garnered 1.1 million viewers.
On December 19th at 9pm, America's favorite toddlers return with all-new episodes of TODDLERS & TIARAS. Season five follows all-new boys and girls parading across stages and ballrooms wearing makeup, false eyelashes, spray tans, fake hair and flashy wardrobes. In the season premiere we meet Mackenzie, a 6-year-old rock star who sings her way to a crown. The glitz newcomer Selena may only be 3 but her mom thinks she's already too big for the natural pageant world. And the judges can't forget 9-year-old Faithlyn whose confidence stems from her intensely competitive coach Nikki, who stops at nothing to help her compete for that high title.
It all kicks off on December 12th where TLC airs back-to-back TODDLERS & TIARAS specials. Starting at 8pm, TODDLERS & TIARAS: MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS highlights the greatest moments and characters from the hit series and directly following at 9pm, TLC will air a special holiday-themed episode.
