Any true TV enthusiast has stumbled upon TLC programming at some point during a game of TV guide roulette. It usually starts as one click, just the first few minutes, just to see how it feels. Then hours later you’re sucked into a TV marathon of greatness, trying to figure where all of Sunday went. If you’re a regular human being, you’re also probably wondering how TLC found these people — and got them to agree to sign a release.
It doesn’t matter if you pride yourself on being a TV snob who only watches Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad and Portlandia or if you’re a rerun addict who can watch episodes of Friends over and over and over again. Everyone ends up getting sucked into TLC shows because there’s nothing else like it out there.
We’re talking about a network that found not one, not two, but THREE extreme cougars in relationships with younger men. If that’s not evidence that God exists and he works solely in cable television programming, that I don’t know how else to convince you.
So with that in mind, it’s safe to say that everyone has a (sometimes secret) favorite series on the network. And believe it or not, that favorite series says A LOT (maybe everything) about who you are as a person.
Toddlers & Tiaras
You hate your mom, but you love your mom. But actually, when you sit down and think about it, you actually hate her. Ugh, she’s the worst…also the best though sometimes. Your relationship with her’s so confusing. Especially when she starts sentences with “you’d be so pretty if you just wore your flippers more often.”
You’re a liar. So is everyone you know. If you’re shaking your head and saying no right now, you’re lying to yourself.
Also odds are high that you have a secret child with a secret father.
You want to fall in love, but you also want your space. Like a lot of space. In fact you’re kinda banking on your future husband being out of the house, um, let’s see, most of the week? It’s cool if he’s seeing other people in that time, you just have an intimacy thing, issue, dealio that you’re not really to talk about.

You’re looking for inspiration on the best way to wear a long denim skirt this winter.
My Strange Addiction
You’re secretly, very strange, peculiar in fact. On the outside you totally appear to be a complete, normal, functioning human being. But when you’re alone, at home, with your doors locked, you have a lot of weird habits.
Also you tried that toilet paper thing. It wasn’t the worst snack you’ve ever had.
You thrive on organization and actually live for the thrill of seeing someone else’s mess. Clutter excites you because you know that you can clean it. One time you pulled a From Mixed up Files of Basil E. Frankweiler in The Container Store and stayed there for an entire weekend.
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
You’re a phenomenal human being who excels at seeing the best in others. Good job. Also you enjoy mud wrestling.
