TLC to Air 6-Hour Dr. Pimple Popper: The Poppy Bowl Marathon During Super Bowl
The 6-hour marathon event will run from 5p-11p EST and feature six fan-favorite episodes of Dr. Pimple Popper
For those who don’t care for the Super Bowl, Dr. Sandra Lee, a.k.a. Dr. Pimple Popper, is here to save the day. TLC is set to air Dr. Pimple Popper: The Poppy Bowl on Sunday, February 3.
The 6-hour marathon event will run from 5pm-11pm EST and feature six fan-favorite episodes of Dr. Pimple Popper. Along with the previously-aired episodes, fans will get never-before-seen footage, including POP-up factoids and untold behind-the-scenes stories.
The marathon will also include updates on some of Dr. Lee’s most memorable patients.
Dr. Pimple Popper first premiered on TLC in July 2018 after Dr. Lee became a viral YouTube sensation with her blackhead extraction videos.
“I didn’t look for fame. It just comes with it,” she previously told PEOPLE about her nearly 5 million YouTube subscribers and 3 million Instagram followers. I’m just trying to be careful and not get ahead of myself.”
With her new platform, Lee strives to represent dermatology responsibly and hopes to remove the stigma many of her patients face because of their struggles.
“I’m showing these things in part to educate and for people to understand and accept people,” she says about her show. “TLC is showing that these are real people. They’re exposing a part of themselves that they hide from others, and you just want to treat them with respect and make sure they feel comfortable and safe with you.”
