(New York, NY) - As the original group from BREAKING AMISH reunited in TLC's newest spinoff series RETURN TO AMISH, Sunday night's premiere raked in 2.4M P2+ viewers and secured the #1 spot among all television (including both broadcast and ad-supported cable) in its 9-11 time period in delivery among W18-34 (excluding sports). RETURN TO AMISH garnered a 1.9 HH rating, a 1.4 W25-54/18-49/18-34 rating, and scored the time period's highest P2+ delivery and HH ratings since November 2012. The spinoff opener also posted the franchise's highest P2+ delivery and HH ratings since season 1 of BREAKING AMISH in November 2012.

Driven by the RETURN TO AMISH premiere, TLC ranked #3 among all ad-supported cable on Sunday night in delivery with P2+, W25-54, and HH, and placed among the top 5 networks with P25-54 and P/W18-49/18-34.

On the next episode of RETURN TO AMISH, airing Sunday, June 8 at 10/9c, the Schmuckers are having problems with the Amish Community. Chester's sons see that he is taking it hard, while Mary is trying to get past her troubles in New York City, with some Big City experiences: limos, airplanes, and Yoga. Katie Ann tags along with Mary and Kate, and (sort of) finds the courage to talk to a New York guy! Back home in Pennsylvania, Abe, Rebecca, Sabrina, and Jeremiah talk babies and shunning, while Andrew and Chapel have an important appointment.

RETURN TO AMISH is produced by Hot Snakes Media for TLC.
