American Chopper to Ride on TLC12/18/2006 9:02 AM Eastern
American Chopper is about to rev up on TLC.
The series -- showcasing Orange County Choppers, the custom motorcycle family business run by Paul Teutul Sr. and his sons, Paul Teutul Jr. and Mikey -- is driving to TLC from sister network Discovery Channel.
The migration begins Christmas night with a three-hour marathon of episodes from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. and continues Jan. 14 with a show bringing TLC viewers up to speed on the history of the Teutuls and Orange County Choppers.
The network -- setting up shop with new block Turbo on TLC -- will roll out the first episode of Chopper’s fourth season Jan. 18 at 9 p.m., followed by a special installment chronicling Mikey’s adventures around the OCC shop and the Northeast Coast at 10 p.m.
Turbo on TLC’s complete lineup comprises Overhaulin, beginning Jan. 18 at 7 p.m.; American Hot Rod, starting Jan. 25 at 8 p.m.; and Biker Build-off, debuting Feb. 8 at 10 p.m.
The block will serve as the on-air home for Turbo, the multiplatform, multimedia destination for Discovery Networks’ best “motorized” content, from choppers to supersonic jets and everything in between.
