The Shift - Monday, January 6 at 9am ET/ 6am PT

Snapped - Monday, January 6 at 1pm ET/ 10am PT and 2pm ET/ 11am PT

Snapped profiles the fascinating cases of women accused of murder. Every year, approximately 16,000 people are murdered in the United States. Seven percent of the killers are female. Who are these women and what drives them to kill? Did they really do it? And, if they did, why? Whether the motivation was revenge against a cheating husband, the promise of a hefty insurance payoff, or putting an end to years of abuse, the reasons are as varied as the women themselves. From socialites to secretaries, female killers share one thing in common: at some point they all snapped.

Solved - Monday, January 6 at 3pm ET/ 12pm PT

Solved presents the career-defining - and sometimes life-changing - cases of police officers, FBI agents and prosecutors. In each episode, a mysterious homicide case unfolds through first-person accounts from America's elite law enforcement officers. Forensic analysts, trace evidence experts, crime scene technicians, forensic document examiners, forensic linguists, handwriting experts and computer forensic specialists add their incredible investigation techniques to help solve these compelling murder cases.

Solved: Extreme Forensics - Monday, January 6 at 4pm ET/ 1pm PT

Enter a world where everyone's a suspect and everyday items can be murderous weapons. And tranquil locations transform into terrifying crime scenes. Only the sharpest minds and cutting-edge science can solve these shocking puzzlers. It's forensics like you've never seen, with technologies that will blow your mind. Welcome to the next generation in forensic drama: raw, real and unbelievably riveting. This is extreme forensics.

The series weaves the star's back-story with events from their last day, which lays bare the threads of fate that led inextricably from childhood to the moment of death.

Celebrities profiled include Sid Vicious, River Phoenix, Anna Nicole Smith, Marvin Gaye, John Belushi, Tupac Shakur, Hunter S. Thompson, Janis Joplin and John F. Kennedy, Jr.
