    The Willis Family (TLC)

    Has anyone seen the previews for the new show about the Willis family? They are musical (Irish Americans) and have a very tragic background. They lost 6 of 9 children (their parent's siblings) in a tragic car collision some years ago.

    They are a very attractive family. It does look amusing. I'm looking forward to checking it out on May 5th.

    I also learned that they have appeared on America's Got Talent.

    I know what you mean. I'm not sure I want to add another show either, but I dropped the Bateses and the Duggars will wrap up soon, so, I'll try to fit them in. They seem to be really talented and I'm a music fan, so, I'll have to check it out.

    I have never forgotten them as I live in Illinois. During the governor's race this issue was brought up... I didn't vote for the eventual winner (and past secretary of state) because of this. Well, I'm glad he ended up in jail but it never brought those poor kids back. The family, however, handled all the pain and the spotlight with grace.

    I'm not from that area and I have never heard of them. I didn't even remember them from being on America's Got Talent. It looks like it might be pretty amusing.

    Remember when TLC was actually about LEARNING!

    It has its share of fruitloops, but there are some jewels every once in a while.

    I actually like some of TLC's programming, and 'The Little Couple' is one of my faves. But, apparently TLC is being called the freak show channel by some viewers -- but it looks like there's hope for the network yet. I just read an article on ABC News on-line saying that "TLC Abandoning the 'Freak Show' to Find Some Heart." Here's the link, if anyone's interested: TLC Abandoning the 'Freak Show' to Find Some Heart - ABC News
