11 Cancelled TLC Shows We Wish Would Make A Comeback
Before TLC was turning out family oriented reality shows and getting caught up in quite a few scandals, it had a wide array of shows on its broadcasting schedule. As fans are well aware, remakes and reboots are all the rage right now and TLC announced the return of one of its former most popular shows of all: Trading Spaces. With the hit series returning, we decided to reminisce on some other TLC shows fans now miss. While many of these series are still enjoyed by TLC fans on reruns, it would be great to seem them come back with brand new episodes, so here are 11 cancelled TLC series we wish would make a comeback.
11. Home Savvy
Before the endless onslaught of home and property renovation series and the popularity of HGTV, TLC wasn’t just cashing in on the home renovation genre with Trading Spaces. In the mid-’90s TLC launched Home Savvy which featured two hosts giving home improvement advice to everyday people. The series had all the makings for an excellent home renovation program that would thrive today, it just happened to air at the wrong time.
10. Captain’s Log
Not many remember when TLC boldly and proudly called itself “The Learning Channel,” but those who do will most certainly remember Captain’s Log with Captain Mark Gray. Back in The Learning Channel’s infancy, Captain’s Log was one of the network’s highest-rated programs. The series ran from 1987-1990 and followed sea captain Mark Gray as he talked with other boaters about boating and most importantly being safe on the water. While that may sound boring to today’s TLC viewers, it was informative and educational, everything the network boasted and most importantly more of what TV today needs. Now, Gray won’t even let his own children watch TLC. “It used to be The Learning Channel. Now they might as well call it the National Enquirer channel. It’s heartbreaking,” he said. With huge improvements in technology and a much wider reach, there is no doubt that Captain’s Log could spruce things up and once again be a hit series for avid boaters and enthusiasts.
