Here, you'll find a list of all the best TLC shows on now for your viewing pleasure. As TLC stands for "The Learning Network," every TLC series is based on actual events, people, or phenomenons. While the network's been accused of sensationalism in the past, TLC programming at least strives to be somewhat informative.

Wondering what to watch on TLC? Exploring topics like religion, obesity, family relationships, and more, these popular TLC shows are - if nothing else - entertaining. 

What are the TLC shows currently airing? Say Yes to the Dress - the classic series that features brides-to-be searching for the perfect gown - kicked off its 15th season in 2017 and is still going. The controversial Duggar family's trials and tribulations are still being chronicled on Counting On, produced after the abrupt cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting. 

If you're interested in religion, Breaking Amish chronicles life after leaving the Amish church. If you prefer more lighthearted programming, you can try something like Cake Boss or OutDaughtered. 

Out of all the shows on this list of TLC programs, which do you think deserves the top stop? Vote for the best TLC shows on now below to help determine the most entertaining program The Learning Network has to offer.
