Tonight marks the end of an era as Little People, Big World comes to a close.
The TLC series began in 2006 and became a ratings hit for the cable network, despite its lack of standard reality fare: Instead of bickering, team eliminations and sexy contestants, the show depicted a normal American family, where the parents (and one of their four children) happened to be little people.
"Almost every other word out of our mouths was 'as a little person,'" Matt Roloff tells the Vancouver Sun. "We saw ourselves as missionaries, if you will, to encourage parents not to abort their little person, to encourage little people to understand what they could do with their lives."
Over the years, we've watched the Roloffs take vacations, celebrate holidays and milestones and go about their daily lives. In tonight's back-to-back episodes, we'll see the twins as they explore moving into their own apartment and Matt and his wife, Amy, as they consider selling Roloff Farms, their home for the last 20 years.
this makes me sad. i have been watching them since they started (and i was kinda hoping amy would ditch matt before it ended)
