SEASON PREMIERE:Sister Wives‘ (Sunday at 10pm on TLC)

TLC brings viewers inside the rarely seen world of plural families with the premiere of ‘Sister Wives,’ an engrossing seven-part series following Kody Brown, his three — soon to be four — wives and their many children. The series explores the complex daily life of a polygamist family. We meet husband Kody — along with his three wives; Meri, Janelle and Christine and their combined 13 children — showing how they attempt to navigate life as a “normal” family in a society that shuns their lifestyle.

SEASON PREMIERE:Family Guy‘ (Sunday at 9pm ET on Fox)
