WeTV Will Remain The Womens Channel According To The 2013 WeTV Upfonts


An Era is coming to an end on a staple network for women’s entertainment. Yes, I am talking about WeTv, and the brides America has loved making parody’s of for the last 9 seasons will cease to show on television. WeTv is unveiling a slew of new original unscripted shows for their summer line up. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, WeTv will launch seven new original series and celebrate the return of two popular shows. Two more original series will launch in the Fall of 2013. By adding more original content, WeTv is putting up serious competition, to other big contenders such as Lifetime, Bravo, and TLC. The new shows are sure to become your new guilty pleasure before the end of summer.

BREEZY'S RECAP...

I am a girl, in fact sometimes I can be a girlie girl. Therefore, it is not a huge surprise that I watch WeTV. In fact I have grown to love and hate to love series on this women's channel. Finding out that WeTV is following the recent trend and breaking into scripted television is interesting, and I wonder what will come from it. I have seen almost every show described above and none of them are bad. My favorite has to be Marriage Boot Camp. If you are like me, and didn't believe that any of the couples would make it to the alter, much less the 1st anniversary it is definitely a fun watch. So what about you? What will you be watching? Is there anything calling your name? Let me know in the comments section.
