Season 6 of Little People, Big World officially announced - Begins September 6th

Well, that took a while for the official announcement to finally come, but what everyone knew was finally announced. There will be a Season 6 of Little People, Big World as it has been renewed for another season. Season 5 concludes tonight and they've currently been filming season 6.

They do have a date for Season 6's return -- September 6th (yes, that's a Monday)

There is a little bit of a spin with the ratings figure as you would always expect in this type announcement. As most people know, TLC splits one season of LPBW into two halves. Part A and Part B.

Part A starts into the fall and goes into the winter. Then there is a couple of months of hiatus, only for Part B to return in the spring and run until about this time of year.

Season 5 Part A averaged 1.8 million viewers; experiencing a season high of a 2.4 rating and a low of 1.4.

Part B which returned in April has seen a drop in ratings. The high for 5B has been a 1.4 (the low of 5A) and the low was dropping below the 1 million mark with a 0.994 rating. So it's obviously advantageous to combine the two sections to raise the overall rating.

so, I guess, the last episode ending drama with Matt's health was all a big fake scare. Are they going to keave us hanging until the fall episodes then?

I am one who is happy they will be coming back. I am anxious to hear Matt is okay. After watching the last episode I can't believe they didn't call 911 asap. A friend in Colorado.

I am usually pro Roloff but I am not tonight, To Matt Roloff you and the TLC network owe all of us viewers an apology for the fake stage ending that you all left us with to look at. to fake as if you passed out or died is just plan sick and pathetic the end for this show has been coming this whole season for how they have all change and tonight show just put the icing on the cake take this show off the air asap show us the repeats of season one thru 4 don't ever show us this horrible season which is known as season five it was just awful and so not real go back to when the show was real for season six since it was pick up I promise we will all just treat season five as a horrible dream and it never exist and it never happen like the 1985-1986 season of the CBS network weekly night time soap Dallas it was all just a dream and that season just never exist we will treat this the same way just make the show like it was real and basic and simple not all this stage scripted mess just plain simple down to earth and real all I can say is that I hope that the powers that be make season six right because if not more than likley season six will be the end for this show might just be season six part A, part B 2011 may not even make if part A. September 6, 2010 be a mess. Matt Amy, TLC production crew just make it like it was that all I have to say make it like was the way it use to be. Tay

Little People Big LIES just jumped the Shark.

Remember, MATT AND AMY ARE PRODUCERS.
THE CHOISE OF FOOLING THEIR VIEWERS WAS THEIRS.

These people are manipulative and are making their wealth milking your emotions for ratings. This pathetic, shameful and evil. There is quite a lot of unsophisticated viewers out there that don't get the fact the Roloff family is all a fake show or like Roxanne said"a twisted skein of lies."

This show is just done and over with. I Can't even look at it any more after Monday Nights show. The Roloff or just some fake wanna be TLC tv stars that will do anything to make a buck.
