TLC brings back 'Cupcakes,' Animal Planet renews 'Animal Hoarding' and 'Pit Bull' series

By Lisa de Moraes

Look out Georgetown residents: Discovery's TLC network announced it's bringing back "DC Cupcakes" on Feb. 25. The first season of this show seemed to correspond with a notable lengthening of the customer line out the door of this Georgetown cupcake shop, which slowed down traffic on 33rd St.

Meanwhile, Discovery's Animal Planet network has renewed reality shows "Confessions: Animal Hoarding" and "Pit Bulls and Parolees" for third seasons. The new seasons will debut in the third and fourth quarter of '11, respectively.

The Jan. 22 second-season finale of "Pit Bulls and Parolees" delivered about 1.3 million viewers and was the series' most watched episode ever among 25-54 year olds. Meanwhile, "Confessions: Animal Hoarding" clocked nearly a million viewers on Jan. 28.

The next night, the second season debut of the network's "Pit Boss," which is about little people pit bull rescuers, was that show's most watched episode ever among 25-54 year olds.
