WE tv knows that family is at the center of women's lives and women are at the forefront of their families. Increasingly, families are changing; there are more blended, single-parent and multigenerational families than ever before.
And whether they are celebrities or the family next door, the issues are the same.
WE tv has responded to this shift by programming unfiltered stories that showcase the new family dynamic and all the natural drama and chaos that come along with it. From the stress of a parent moving in ("Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?") to dealing with supercompetitive sisters ("Braxton Family Values") and juggling the demanding roles of career woman, mom and wife ("Kendra on Top"), WE tv's originals are real, familiar and completely relatable—not to mention incredibly entertaining.
From Bread Baker to Breadwinner: More and more women are at the head of their households, financially as well as emotionally. They're the new demo in women's television: Breadwinner Viewership.
When it comes to Breadwinner Viewers, WE tv takes charge of the women in charge. WE tv viewers are 60 percent more likely than nonviewers to be the sole breadwinner in the family, and 75 percent more likely than nonviewers to make more money than their spouses.
They see their lives reflected in the stars of WE tv shows, featuring strong, independent women geared for success and loving the lives they're living.
