TLC lans Justin Bieber special

Posted on


The Bieb is coming to TLC.

EW.com has exclusively learned the network has secured the U.S. rights to a British holiday special that interviewed the pop star and went behind-the-scenes into his music empire.

This Is Justin Bieber has Brit personality Reggie Yates accompanying the singer on a tour of London, a performance on The X Factor UK and collaborating with rapper Tinie Tempah. The one-hour special will premiere Wednesday, Dec. 21, and includes acoustic performances from his holiday album, Under the Mistletoe.

Also at TLC, if you’re a fan of Extreme Couponing, you’re going to love this: The network has ordered a potential companion to the show called Extreme Cheapskates.

Cheapskates follows people who save money with truly extreme measures. One man dumpster-dives to find an anniversary gift for his wife, another family uses reusable cloth toilet wipes, and another that takes a “fiscal fast” five times a year.

Like its strategy with Couponing, TLC has started by ordering a special (airing Dec. 28), and if the ratings are strong a series order will follow.
