In 1998, the channel began to distance itself from its original name, and instead began to advertise itself only as TLC while introducing the slogan "Life Unscripted". During this period, there was a significant shift in content, with most new programming being geared towards reality, drama and interior design shows.

On March 27, 2006, the network launched a new look and promotional campaign, dropping the "Life Unscripted" tag and introducing the slogan "Live and learn" in an attempt to turn around the network's reliance on decorating shows and reality programming.
