"Why does TLC keep putting this poo poo on who's actually watching this?"

Goons then go into great detail about said poo poo shows since they apparently watch them. The gently caress people?
I've actually never seen an episode - I just hate-read recaps on the internet! I guess I've been kind of hate-following their whole cult since the days of the MOTHboard on Titus2.com, back when Michelle was posting there about sourcing cheap flexible rulers for beating training her kids

I feel like my wife doesn't really care about the little people shows because they're not ridiculous. I mean, the one with the mom who's a doctor is actually legitimately nice, so it's less interesting than someone who's 700lbs and lies to themselves and their family (Penny )

Yeah the Little Couple people seem normal and nice and fun to hang out with so they're pretty boring. The Roloffs seem more annoying but still not exactly riveting reality tv

Yeah, the only bits of any Duggar shows I've seen is if they were linked in this thread and I felt like being depressed. I just have a thing for cults and another thing for Christian apologetics and there's a good side of persecution complex and then some good old crazy, which are also my jam.

Jim Bob territorially humping his wife in front of his daughter and her date (who are allowed no more affection than distanced hand holding) at a mini-golf court is forever seared into my memory.

E: my comfort in this is that neither TLC nor the Duggar clan got paid for my trauma.

What happens when Jessa and Sturgeon meet up with Jim Bob and Michelle in a neutral area? Do they root, caw, and rub themselves up and down their wives' bodies to assert dominance? Is that awkward in the buffet line at Golden Corral?

Duggar men assert dominance by headbutting, much like elk. This is why Jim Bob uses three cans of hairspray every day to maintain his Blagojevich-esque hair helmet.

No it's not. The one with the little people, where one had cancer, and they adopted (two kids, actually) is The Little Couple. Which even people in here admit features pretty decent people, to the point where the show is a bit boring. The woman who got cancer is a medical Doctor. No one in it is Ukrainian. And it is a TLC show.

Unless there's another little people show that also features these things.

Little Women of LA has a little lady who I think had a cancer scare and is trying to have a baby with her little man.

Although I know the one you are talking about. You're right, they do seem relatively normal.

Little Women of LA is like Real Housewives of LA with both stunted physical growth and stunted intelligence.

I think it was ABC Family that recently tried to do a reality show about a "medium" who also happens to be a high school girl and OMGZ she has such a hard time finding dates when guys find out about her powers, you guyz.

(Psychics predict the future, mediums talk to the dead, very different)

E: Here it is, Monica the Medium. She's a junior at Penn State, not in high school. Wikipedia says it got picked up for a second season.
