TLC stands for... what, exactly?
While I absolutely LOATHE what TLC has become ("The Learning Channel," it ain't), I think that maybe the fact that it's part of standard cable might push it more away from "hey, let's look at the bed-hopping" and more into the other dynamics. I've only seen Sister Wives a handful of times, mainly because my ex was fascinated by it, but I found that it certainly portrayed the family interactions quite a bit, and in one of the episodes I watched, scheduling was definitely a problem (one wife was a space cadet and really upset the others by showing up late for a graduation, IIRC). Sounds like "real-world Poly" problems to me, and I may be more inclined (emphasis on MAY) to point people to THAT show as a better representative of what kind of relationship I'm in.
