Series info and concept
My 600-lb Life is an American reality series airing on TLC since February 1, 2012. It is produced by Megalomedia and executive produced by Graham Davidson, Johnathan Nowzaradan and Rachel Mendez. The current fourth season premiered on January 6, 2016, with the first out of ten episodes.
The compelling show portrays real people, each weighing at least 600 pounds at the beginning of the season, as they undertake a transformational and life-changing journey of serious weight loss. As the morbidly obese individuals undergo gastric bypass surgery and deal with the other changes that have to be undertaken in order to achieve their goal of regaining control of their lives, their careers and their relationships, the viewers are allowed to follow along. Each episode is dedicated to a year in the life of each person.
Current season and chances of renewal
My 600-lb Life averaged 1.4 million in the previous seasons. The most recent, January 20, 2016 episode of the series gathered 1.349 million viewers in front of their TVs, and garnered a 0.5 rating in the P18-49 demographic. Series like this, even though they always portray some cases in which the person`s attempts do not pay off and remain unsuccessful, are still an inspiration to people facing the same issues in their lives. Thus they will always have an audience, perhaps not a huge one, but a steady one nonetheless. There hasn`t been any announcements on the future of the show from TLC, so the viewers should stay tuned for relevant news.
