[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


- All-New Series WIVES WITH KNIVES Premieres Friday, November 23 at 10 PM E/P -

- Season 3 of FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG Premieres at 8 & 8:30 PM E/P -

(Silver Spring, MD) - Family gatherings at Thanksgiving can be dangerous, especially when the woman carving your turkey is a knife-wielding femme fatale. So scoop your cranberry sauce with caution, but pull up a chair and join other viewers of Investigation Discovery's annual ode to wicked women. First, FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG returns Friday, November 23 with back-to-back episodes at 8 & 8:30 PM E/P. Former FBI criminal profiler Candice DeLong goes behind prison walls to interview women whose shocking stories of love and betrayal landed them in the big house instead of home this holiday season. Then, WIVES WITH KNIVES world premieres at 10 PM E/P with six episodes of women who stabbed their significant others, sometimes killing them. Host Dr. Casey Jordan, a criminologist and behavioral analyst with a law degree, sits down with each wife to reveal what events or motivations led them to slice and dice.

"For better or for worse, the women featured on WIVES WITH KNIVES literally cut the men out of their lives," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Throughout Investigation Discovery's storied programming past, we've profiled liars, murderers, convicts, and thieves, but never have we focused on a specific method like using cutlery to teach your husband a lesson. Indeed, our viewers will find the stories in this series are truly a cut above the rest."

In The Beefcake and the Beauty Queen, the premiere episode of WIVES WITH KNIVES, a beautiful mother becomes smitten over an energetic ladies' man she meets at a health club. Falling fast and hard for one another, Jamie and Charlie Czerniawski marry after just six months and settle down in Freehold, N.J. They think their love is one for the ages, until they become too attractive for their own good and begin to suspect each other of cheating. Intense arguments become daily ritual and turn physical following their appearance on a reality show about their family life. Charlie rips a medicine cabinet off the wall. Jamie bashes his car with a baseball bat. Then their marital issues boil over. After returning from a nightclub, Charlie catches his wife secretly calling another man. The couple brawls in the kitchen, where Jamie grabs a knife and plunges it into her husband's arm. Charlie survives, but the marriage does not. Now Dr. Casey Jordan sits down with Jamie, who escaped jail time, to learn how things went from sweet to sour.

And in back-to-back season three premiere episodes of FACING EVIL WITH CANDICE DELONG, the former FBI criminal profiler and psychiatric nurse interviews two women convicted of murder who still maintain their innocence.

· Stripped Bare at 8 PM E/P

When Melissa Vanover meets jewelry salesman Michael Nieman, she thinks she has found her knight in shining armor. Lavishing her with gifts and expensive outings, Nieman opens up a whole new world to the 26 year old. But that world has a dark side. The champagne and diamonds are soon replaced with drugs, guns, and abuse. Then one fateful day, Nieman is found shot dead in his own bed. With nearly a million dollars' worth of cash, drugs and jewelry stolen, police initially suspect thieves. Yet when Vanover is unmasked as the triggerman, it is only the beginning of her troubled story. Location: Miami Township, OH

· Friends 'Til the End at 8:30 PM E/P

Shirley Jo Phillips and Wilma Plaster were best friends who bonded over country music and line dancing. But things turn sour when Plaster suspects her fun-loving friend of stealing. Weeks after being reported missing, police find Plaster's body parts scattered throughout the county. Despite her pleas of innocence, Phillips is convicted of her friend's murder. Twenty-three-years after the crime she remains adamant that she didn't do it. Is this a case of an innocent woman wrongly convicted, or she is she covering up the crime for someone else? Location: Hollister, MO
