Dating #NoFilter

Let's be real... dating is not the fantasy that TV makes it out to be. Instead, it's an absolute awful show of X-rated pics, ghosting and one night stands.

This is a fresh take on the modern dating scene for the socially savvy, right-swiping generation.

In each episode, three pairs of comedians deliver play-by-play commentary as they watch real singles navigate first dates, or at least try to date.

Throughout the blind dates, the comedians will offer their candid and unique POVs as they weigh in on every accidental love story pulling at viewers' heart strings and the "OMG-no!" cringe-worthy moments with real, unfiltered commentary.

In the series premiere, "Busted Blue Balls": Buff comic book nerd Shaun hopes to make a match with former ice skating champion, Lexi, but he may not be able to keep up with her on or off the ice.

Meanwhile, flight attendant David shoots high for love on the trapeze with fitness guru Tyrone, but wearing spandex on the first date may have been a big mistake.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, "Kiss Kiss, Bye Bye": Free spirit Maury is in search of love and the super suave Danny may just be what she ordered on a romantic and boozy safari.

And during a messy sculpting class, cute and bubbly Alex hopes to find a connection with Harmony, who does her best Patrick Swayze impression.

sMothered 2

If you thought you knew what the phrase "Like Mother, Like Daughter" meant, just wait until sMothered makes its premiere.

TLC's fresh twist on family programming, sMothered, follows four outrageous, mother/daughter duos who take their bonds to the extreme.

These women are a constant presence in each other's lives, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

They do everything together - from dressing in matching outfits, to getting plastic surgery and injections, to sharing the same bath water and even sleeping in the same bed.

Every mother/daughter pair prioritises their unique relationship above all else, often causing rifts between their siblings and significant others.

But, the ladies' lives begin to change as they experience various life events, like boyfriends, pregnancy and moving out on their own, and maintaining the same level of closeness may prove impossible.

Faced with the reality that their tighter-than-tight relationships could be pulled apart at the seams, these women are determined to find a way to remain attached at the hip.

sMothered offers a chance to relish in third-wheel envy as they get to know these vivacious twosomes, and explore their uncanny, but undeniable, bonds.
