TMI is primarily a Saturday morning show with cartoons, music and competitions but also adds a new spin to reality tv as there is a 'TMI Flat' where they are filmed by multiple camera and then shown on the following Saturday's show.

On 18 July 2007 it was revealed by the BBC that TMI was one of the programmes which had deceived viewers with a faked phone-in competition winner on 16 September 2006.
