TV Premiere Dates & Schedule for August 2020

Darcey and Stacey

TLC Darcey and Stacey airs Sunday, August 16 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.

August is nearly here, and with the country still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be looking for something to watch as everything continues to shut back down again. If so, Heavy has you covered – with dozens of new series premieres, returning mid-summer favorites, long-awaited finales and summer specials, you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied from the safety of your own home.

Although it’s a slower month than usual for TV premieres, there will still be plenty to watch throughout August, including a brand new reality series based on Darcey and Stacey Silva, the fan-favorite twin sisters who were featured on TLC’s hit series 90 Day Fiance. There will also be a new RuPaul’s Drag Race spinoff premiering later in the month, as well as Season 2 of Lifetime’s popular series Marrying Millions
