Paulina Zeng | The Rebel Yell A poll shows Utah voters are OK with the Utah Data Center but not polygamy and want Kody Brown, third from left, of reality show "Sister Wives," to lose his lawsuit. In this file photo, Brown is introduced to the audience during a panel on polygamy presented by the Department of Anthropology at the Marjorie Barrick Museum Auditorium on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Thursday, April 25, 2013.

This weekend on TV: Ho, hum. The "Sister Wives" are back

>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.
