The fallout from the baby switch trial continues in the second-season premiere of "Switched at Birth," airing Monday, January 7th at 8:00 pm ET/PT on ABC Family. After the verdict against the hospital makes Angelo (Gilles Marini) a millionaire, he stuns the families with lavish gifts. But suspicions about Angelo's behavior continue when a pregnant woman shows up claiming that he is the father. John and Kathryn consider a run for public office. Meanwhile, Bay must face the Student Honor Board when she's accused of cheating, and Daphne's distraction with Chef Jeff gets her in trouble.

Michelle (Sutton Foster) has returned to Las Vegas and is working as a magician's assistant in the winter premiere of ABC Family's original series "Bunheads," airing Monday, January 7th at 9:00 pm ET/PT on ABC Family. It's been several months since the Nutcracker fiasco, where Michelle accidently maced the young performers of Paradise Dance Academy. Now she's crashing on her friend's couch and working as a dancer for a small-time magician in Henderson, NV. Meanwhile in Paradise, the dance studio is closed down, leaving the students to keep busy on their own.

In the mid-season premiere of "Pretty Little Liars," airing Tuesday, January 8th at 8:00 pm ET/PT, Radley Sanitarium has given Mona a clean bill of health and she is headed back to the halls of Rosewood High, much to the Liars' dismay. With their former tormentor now back in their everyday life, Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer take very different views of the "new" Mona. She made their lives a living hell... Is she really cured? And what other secrets could she be holding onto? It's up to Mona to prove to the Liars if she has changed or not. Keegan Allen stars as Toby, Spencer's boyfriend and a secret member of the "A" Team.

The "lies" continue in the Season 2 premiere of "The Lying Game," Tuesday, January 8th at 9:00 pm ET/PT. Alec is in jail following his arrest for Derek's murder, but he still manages to unnerve Emma (Alexandra Chando), who is desperate for answers. Rebecca and Sutton's mother-daughter bonding consists of formulating their plans for the Mercer family, which contradicts Emma and Laurel's plan to reunite Ted and Kristin. Meanwhile, Mads goes looking for trouble and meets a mysterious new guy.
