TLC, which in this case rather ironically stands for The Learning Channel, will once again be teaching us all what's it's like to live in a truly dysfunctional family. No, we're not talking about Jon and Kate, we're talking choppers. American Chopper, that is.

Unlike before, when the reality television series focused on the lives of one family and its quest to assemble raked-out custom motorcycles, it will now focus on, um, two families... sorta. Both of them will still have the same last name, but anyone who watched the show over the last season or so knows that the two Paul Teutuls don't get along in any shape or form.

As such, the show will reportedly follow both father and son as they build motorcycles in different shops, one of which we assume will be Senior's Orange County Choppers. The other will presumably be Paul Jr. Designs. Sounds to us like a giant case of Teutul overload, but what do we know? Thanks for the tip, Quest!

      "Pitting family as foes".
      TV is a ghetto.And so is the liberal media by association.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Are any of the TLC shows not about families, small people, large people, wide people, poorly dressed people, people with too much stuff, people with nothing, people who can't decorate, people who can't buy a house, people addicted to something, people who use fertility drugs, people who don't know how to use birth control, etc. etc? Shoot me now.

      TLC needs to change its name already. It's been years since anything remotely educational aired on that channel.

        Nicely done. ^5

        The fact that I can remember the days before TLC used all its airtime for American Chopper and Trading Spaces makes me feel old...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Sounds classy...
        • 4 Years Ago
        This blows. It's time for a new show with some more interesting builders like Roger Goldhammer, Jesse Rooke, or someone else of that level.

        TLC, while you're at it...why not add the Jesse James/West Coast Choppers vs Sandra Bullock tit-for-tat drama to the mix...

      Not cool for YEARS.

      Bring back Rides, if anything..
        • 4 Years Ago
        +1 for the return of Rides

      I like to see it back on Discovery, the move to TLC made me miss many shows, when networks change times and days I lose track of programs, they should leave well enough alone.

      Thanks for making my day!! It's my B-day too!

      I'd rather have Monster Garage back on Discovery

      Again, why is a show about a bunch of guys building motorcycles entertaining?
      • 4 Years Ago
      With the economy the way it is and luxury purchases like over-priced "high-end" bikes in the toilet, the two Pauls are going to be milking this show for all it's worth... all their fights and arguments are going to be set-up and scripted to increase the drama just so they keep the TLC paychecks coming in.
      • 4 Years Ago
      And at the end of the season there's gonna be a family reunions and they are gonna make up an act where they resolve their issue and 3 years later you'll find out it was all planned from the start...

      TLC, get the hint. No one watches this crap anymore.

      Let it go. Their fifteen minutes are over. Move on.
