Two poly shows coming up on TV

Two poly presentations are coming up on TV today and tomorrow:

Tuesday March 5: Our America documentary, "I Love You & You... & You". This is the big one: a one-hour show following three polyfamilies, by the Oprah Winfrey Network's Lisa Ling. This looks like it's going to be unusually good, judging by its trailers and by reports from the people who are in it.

As of now it's scheduled for two showings tonight, at 10 p.m. and midnight eastern, and on March 12th at 9 p.m. and midnight eastern. Schedule. Channel finder. Some local poly groups are posting about viewing parties they're holding.

Update: New 3-minute outtake featuring the 11-year old of one of the families. Watch it here, or with a partial text transcript here. Wow. Below is a still from it.

Meet Colleen. She is an 11-year-old girl living with a polyamorous family -- specifically, her mother, her stepfather and her mother's boyfriend. The family opens up to Lisa Ling about their lifestyle and how they explain polyamory to Colleen.

Wednesday March 6: Katie Couric. Sierra Black posts, "We’re scheduled to appear on Katie Couric’s show for a brief discussion of poly family life." You may remember Black and her crew from ABC's outstanding 20/20 segment that first aired April 20, 2012 (and which coincidentally re-aired last Saturday March 2). Katie Couric is a daytime show. Local time and station finder. Here's the episode's webpage (not much there yet).

Actually that's just a 4 and a half minute segment on one of the three families, but wow, it conveys the tone we saw the whole show.

Regarding the Katie program, it appears the polyamorous couple was cut to make room for a story that was probably added recently. Perhaps they'll cover the poly couple in the future.
