4. This Isn’t The Only New Show On TLC
When COVID-19 first swept across the world, everything in the entertainment industry was put on hold which meant no new content.

In addition to Stuck, TLC has also debuted a new TV series titled Body Parts which focuses on patients who have lost a body part.
5. Many Viewers Feel The Show Is Too Gruesome
A show like Stuck is sure to make some people feel a little uneasy, but it looks like this series may have gone a little too far. After TLC released a trailer for the show, some people responded that they felt like it was a little bit too gross. That said, that is kind of the point of the show.
6. The Show Is Produced By 51 Minds Entertainment
Stuck was brought to TLC by a Los Angeles-based production company called 51 Minds Entertainment.

That said, TLC has had a lot of new shows come out recently and it goes without saying that not all of them will end up being renewed.
8. Some Of The Situations Are Life-Threatening
Some of the cases on Stuck may seem a little comical at first, but the reality is that many of them are actually life-threatening. Doctors will have to race against time in order to ensure that their patients are able to leave the hospital safely and resume their normal lives.
9. You Don’t Need to Have Cable to Watch The Show
People who don’t have cable may be wondering how they can watch Stuck. The good news is that you have a few options. Stuck can be streamed on FuboTV, Sling, Philo, or Discovery +. Keep in mind, however, that none of these services are free although you may be able to do a free trial.
10. Viewers May Be Shocked By Some of The Objects That Have Gotten Stuck
