Los Angeles (CA) - The Learning Channel and E! Entertainment TV are both heading for a stronger presence online, with new broadband programming announcements that came through late yesterday.

TLC will debut its first online-only series, Makeover Train, on June 4.  The show has been granted 10 episodes and will be available exclusively from TLC.com.

E! will also beef up its online repertoire with new IPTV comedies.  The Thin Crowd will premiere on May 23, followed by a sketchy comedy show called Varsity Interpretative Dance Squad (VIDS), which will debut June 14.  New episodes of the show Bad Kitty are also heading every Monday to eonline.com, and a musical comedy routine titled A Song by Julia hits the site every Tuesday.
