Watch Long Island Medium

Long Island Medium, a half-hour reality show starring New York housewife and medium Theresa Caputo, debuted on TLC on September 25, 2011. The program chronicles Theresa's professional activities as well as her personal life with her husband and her two teenage children. Petey, the family dog, also makes frequent onscreen appearances.

Each episode follows Theresa as she gives private readings in her home or in clients' homes. In addition, the program shows Theresa giving group readings at a local restaurant. Theresa also gives spontaneous readings in public while shopping, dining out, picking up her dry cleaning and running other errands. She delivers her messages from spirit wherever she goes, a fact that sometimes annoys or embarrasses her husband Larry and her children, Victoria and Lawrence.

Larry sometimes complains that Theresa spends too much time with clients or away from home. The children sometimes complain that Theresa doesn't cook for them, and that she doesn't seem to know how to shut off her paranormal communications. One episode, for example, shows her delivering a message from the dearly departed to her daughter's boyfriend during dinner with him and his parents. Another episode shows her delivering messages from the dead to fellow diners while out on a date night with her husband. Theresa has even delivered spontaneous messages to a hairdresser while having her hair styled and to a fellow student while taking a belly dancing class.

Theresa encounters skeptics and believers alike during each episode. Skeptics often become believers, though, after receiving a reading. Despite their occasional frustration with her compulsion to deliver messages from spirit, Theresa's family is supportive of her paranormal talents, too.

This program depicts Theresa's experiences as a wife, mother, and professional medium. The blend of the personal and paranormal aspects of her life give the show a unique entertainment format.
