The fourth season premiere of “Sister Wives” and the series premiere of “Breaking Amish: LA” both had solid debuts for TLC on Sunday, July 21. “Sister Wives” averaged 2.6 million viewers and was no. 1 in the 9 p.m. timeslot in women 25-54 — which puts “Sister Wives” ahead of the programming on both FOX and the CW.
“Breaking Amish: LA” averaged 1.9 million viewers, which helped make July 21 the best Sunday night ratings for TLC since December 2012. “Wives” earned a 2.0 share in households and “Breaking” earned a 1.6.
On “Sister Wives,” the Brown family is busy building its series of houses so the whole family can live near one another, while on “Breaking Amish: LA,” a new group of Amish and Mennonite young adults leave their sheltered lives and head for the bright lights of Los Angeles.
The two series air at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sunday nights on TLC.
