Eileen O’Neill brought the kids with her to TLC.
Ms. O’Neill, president and general manager of TLC, developed the popular TLC show “Jon & Kate Plus 8” at Discovery Health Channel, she told TelevisionWeek reporter Jon Lafayette at the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour.

TLC’s focus on large broods continues with the Duggar family show “17 Kids and Counting,” which recently welcomed baby No. 18.
“They’ve continued to grow and we’ve grown with them,” Ms. O’Neill said.
TLC will step away from babies into the world of NASCAR with the new series “NASCAR Wives.” Ms. O’Neill pointed out that 40% of NASCAR’s audience is women. She called the partnership with NASCAR “exciting” because of the network’s built-in and growing female audience.
