"We're thrilled TLC's 4Q momentum continues in the new year with record ratings for our all original Wednesday night lineup," said Nancy Daniels, President and General Manager TLC. "We're super serving our audience with a newly expanded 2-hour MY 600LB LIFE, and continuing to build TLC's presence in the scripted genre with the genius of Tyler Perry's soapy scripted drama, TOO CLOSE TO HOME."

MY 600-LB LIFE tells powerful stories of morbidly obese individuals as they make the courageous decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery. Following the life-saving but traumatic experience of surgery, the ups and downs of struggling with addiction and dependence and the inevitable impact that change has on personal relationships; stories this season include Tracey, a 44 year-old woman plagued with an extreme disfiguring of her legs that's transformed them into weighing over 150-lbs each; James, 800-lbs, who has become entirely bed-bound after once being an avid outdoorsman and active father; brothers Steven, 34 years-old and 787-lbs, and Justin, 27 years-old and 540-lbs, who started to gain weight when their parents divorced. The new season of MY 600-LB LIFE airs Wednesday, at 8/7c, on TLC.

TOO CLOSE TO HOME, written, directed and produced by Tyler Perry, continues to follow the story of Anna, a young woman whose life is turned upside down when her affair with the President of the United States is broadcast worldwide forcing her to return to her modest trailer park beginnings in Happy, Alabama. Yet trouble seems to find her wherever she goes -- even her solid relationship with her sister Bonnie is threatened by her poor decisions. This season, more characters are uncovered living in the small neighborhood of trailers and more secrets are uncovered as the tight knit community is met with an unspeakable tragedy that threatens the well-being of everyone living there. New episodes of TOO CLOSE TO HOME air on TLC on Wednesdays, at 10/9c.
