TLC’s biggest hit, Long Island Medium, is about a woman, Theresa Caputo, a Long Islander that has the ability to connect with the great beyond. This reality show debuted back in 2011, and is based in Caputo's hometown of Hicksville., although she frequently travels across the country to help people connect with loved ones and family members that have passed. Caputo claims to be a medium who can communicate with the dead. The show focuses around Caputo’s interactions during private and group readings.
According to her website, Caputo was born and raised in Hicksville - making her a lifelong Long Islander, something she boasts with great pride. She is married to her husband of over 20 years, Larry. The couple has two children together. Caputo says that she began seeing spirits when she was 4-years-old after her mother advised her to see a spiritual healer after suffering from anxiety. Caputo has been a practicing medium for the past 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation. She wishes to help heal people after a loss of a love one and help them find closure.
She even had a book come out in October 2013 where she discusses the challenges she faced when accepting that she had her gift. She explains how her mediumship works, what happens when one dies, what Heaven is like, and many other details about the roles of God and family members in the afterlife.
Whether you have your doubts about Caputo’s abilities or not, her dynamic personality and interaction with her family will pull any TV watcher in.
Her show is in its 6th season, and airs each Sunday at 9/8c on TLC.
