>So, it's another season of Sister Wives (Sunday, 10 p.m., TLC), which begs the question — aren't their 15 minutes of fame up yet?

Apparently not.

Here's TLC's description of the season premiere:

After living in separate rental homes for the past two years, the Browns are one step closer to fulfilling their dream of being together under one roof, moving into four adjacent houses in the same neighborhood. But this dream comes at a cost as they now must figure out how to afford these new homes in addition to maintaining their struggling start-up jewelry business. Meanwhile, Meri finally decides on whether or not to accept Robyn's offer to be her surrogate, but will Kody agree with her decision? And as more kids prepare to leave the nest, Kody and the wives have a surprise in store that will rebuild the closeness the family once shared back in Utah.

I don't have anything against the Browns. In person, I rather liked them.

But I'm completely bored by this show at this point.
