Network renews show for second season

TLC has given a second-season pickup to “The Little Couple.”

First season averaged 1.1 million viewers and the cabler was encouraged to give it another go-around. Net has ordered 18 episodes — up from 14 in season one — that will be aired in the fall in its 10 p.m. Tuesday timeslot.

Skein details the lives of a newly married couple — Bill Klein and Jen Arnold — both of whom are under four feet tall.

TLC has had a strong year with “Jon and Kate Plus 8,” “Cake Boss” and “Police Women of Broward County.”

“The Little Couple” is produced by LMNO Prods. Eric Schotz is exec producer.
