Tonight is the series premiere of I Love a Mama’s Boy on TLC at 10/9c. What happens when a woman falls in love with a guy and wants to marry him…but he has a FAR more important woman in his life? It’s his MOM! In this unbelievable new TLC series, the only thing standing between a couple’s true love is a very different kind of “other woman.” These guys are spoiled, coddled and spoon-fed – in some cases quite literally — by their overbearing mothers, sending their relationships into serious romantic crisis. Follow four young women as they compete for the affection of their significant others with some VERY significant mothers!

They feature extraordinary characters including a volunteer wildlife veterinarian who rehabilitates squirrels and eagles, a homeless woman who dedicates herself to three cows she tows along with her and young couples who have opened their homes to abandoned 200-pound pigs. Throughout, the series captures the inspiring, life-changing bond that occurs between people who have dedicated their lives to rescue and the animals who rescue them right back.

It stars Emma D’Arcy, Malcolm McDowell, Nick Frost, Samson Kayo, Simon Pegg, & Susan Wokoma.
Tonight is the series premiere of My Big Italian Adventure on HGTV at 9/8c. Ciao, Italia! Lorraine Bracco (Rizzoli & Isles, The Sopranos) will take a break from Hollywood for her next gig on the island of Sicily — renovating a 200-year-old home she purchased for only one euro. The show will follow Lorraine’s journey to renovate the 1,075-square-foot property in the tiny hilltop town of Sambuca di Sicilia with help from an architect, contractor, and other local experts. The Sambuca one-euro program was created by the mayor to help sell the town’s vacant homes quickly and inexpensively. The goal is to encourage families to return to the rural oasis, but the catch is that the homes must be completed within three years of purchase.
