Eileen O’Neill

Title: Pres/GM, TLC
Age: Younger than my twin
Education: BA, Bowling Green
Social Media Quotient: 2

Why Her? After successfully launching Planet Green, O’Neill returned to TLC in mid-2008 to get the net back on track. Since then, she has more than fulfilled her mission. In Q3 alone, TLC increased ratings 33% among women 25-54. O’Neill’s immense talent hardly is in question, and it’s fitting that Discovery brass call upon her whenever they have a tough job to fill. These days, O’Neill keeps it real (literally) with plenty of reality fare on TLC. And all while managing the antics of Jon & Kate, or just Kate, or just Jon, or… we lost track actually.
