RETURN TO AMISH Brings TLC Best Ratings Since First Season of BREAKING AMISH

Andrew and Abe on RETURN TO AMISH

Bringing back well-known cast members like brothers Andrew and Abe brought millions of viewers to TLC Sunday night with the debut of RETURN TO AMISH.

RETURN TO AMISH is a return to ratings gold for TLC, with the show bringing in the best ratings for the network on a primetime Sunday in over a year–and the best numbers period since the first season of the original BREAKING AMISH.

Sunday night’s premiere of the new spin-off raked in 2.4 million P2+ viewers (viewers age 2 and over in the US) for the TLC network, securing the #1 spot among all television in its 9-11 p.m. time period in delivery among women 18-34 (excluding sports). RETURN TO AMISH garnered a 1.9 HH (households w/ TVs in US) rating, a 1.4 W25-54/18-49/18-34 (women in these specific age groups) rating, and scored the time period’s highest P2+ delivery and HH ratings since November 2012. The spinoff opener also posted the franchise’s highest P2+ delivery and HH ratings since Season One of BREAKING AMISH in November 2012.

Driven by the RETURN TO AMISH premiere, TLC ranked #3 among all ad-supported cable on Sunday night in delivery with P2+, W25-54, and HH, and placed among the Top 5 networks with P25-54 and P/W18-49/18-34. TLC scored its best Sunday Prime P2+ delivery in over a year (5/12/13), and the night was also the best Sunday Prime HH and P/W25-54/18-49/18-34 ratings and delivery since February 2014.

Source:  Nielsen, 6/1/14 or as dated.  Time period rank excludes sports.

RETURN TO AMISH airs on TLC on Sundays at 10/9c.


On the next episode of RETURN TO AMISH, airing Sunday, June 8 at 10/9c, the Schmuckers are having problems with the Amish Community. Chester’s sons see that he is taking it hard, while Mary is trying to get past her troubles in New York City, with some Big City experiences: limos, airplanes, and yoga. Katie Ann tags along with Mary and Kate, and (sort of) finds the courage to talk to a New York guy. Back home in Pennsylvania, Abe, Rebecca, Sabrina, and Jeremiah talk babies and shunning, while Andrew and Chapel have an important appointment.

RETURN TO AMISH is produced by Hot Snakes Media for TLC.
