TLC Renews 'L.A. Ink'

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 29th 2010 11:36AM

Kat Von D, and her High Voltage tattoo shop, are coming back to TLC for another seasonDirect from the "Not a Big Surprise" department comes news that TLC has reupped 'L.A. Ink' for another run and that production on season 4 is already underway.

A spin-off of 'Miami Ink,' which ended in 2008, 'L.A. Ink' follows tattoo artist Kat Von D at her High Voltage shop in West Hollywood. The show is currently averaging 1.4 million viewers per week. Those are impressive numbers, not just because they come from a cable-based show, but because it airs on Thursday nights at 10PM a hotbed of original programming on the Big Three and One-Third networks.

The numbers are also impressive, because 'L.A. Ink' comes from an older generation of TLC shows -- with four years equaling one television generation. With the network full of programs featuring height-challenged families, weight-challenged families and, soon enough, 18 hours of original Kate Gosselin programming, the show is able to maintain its popularity.

it seems to me that Kat needs to be more specific with her hiring pre-requisites. I thought she was looking for a temp replacement for Caroline. I think Liz though she was hiring in for a personal assistant position. That being said -- what a lying b#@*h!!!! Really sabotaged Corey and Kat!!! Glad she's gone.

Kat is without a shadow of a doubt one of the hottest and purest babes ive ever seen,hate it that her and Nikki Sixx went their seperate ways ,they looked perfect together and its very rare to find a couple that looks that good together.

Kat is talented, but she has no class and always has a stupid look on her face. I know other women artist who have more talent, and personality then Kat Von D, she only got lucky....and yes the show is extremely scripted! FAKE!!!!

It looks like aburey is running the show,I can not stand her she thinks evey1 that is hired that they can not do there job. So why don't she do it her self,she is kissing a** .If anybody should get fired it should be her.She even calls Kat momma, Like she should not be,She should call her by her BOSS by her real name ...Take her off.I see why Cory does not want to work there it is too much stress. And Kat should understand...he has his own place to run ,if it was not for Cory she would not have her show..Think about that Kat and stop wining

OK, TLC, listen up! The Roloffs, hard working, loving family. The Chocolatiers, hard working wonderful people. The Duggars, awesome family, love them all. But Kate Gosselin, fame pig, who expects a million dollars for every fake tear out of that fake example of a mother. I jumped for joy as so many others when she got booted from DWTS. When will TLC see that all people want is for her to realize that it is not the public that should be providing for children that SHE wanted. Go back to welfare as you did before. You sure didn't mind it then, did you?
