What to watch this week: Oxygen turns to true crime

Remember Oxygen, the network founded, in part, by Oprah Winfrey?

It started in 2000 with a slate of programming geared toward women – a sort of Lifetime Jr. Over the years, shows that have aired on Oxygen include Bad Girls Club,” “House of Glam,” “Hollywood Unzipped: Stylist Wars,” “The Glee Project,” “Top Model Obsessed,” “Girls Behaving Badly,” the various “Tori and Dean” shows that focused on Tori Spelling and her husband, and “Oprah After the Show” – reality shows that took viewers inside celebrity- and glamour-driven worlds. The channel was also a repository for syndicated reruns of network reality and talk shows and old sitcoms, including “America’s Next Top Model,” “America’s Got Talent,”

‘Criminal Confessions’ Detective Reveals the Secret to Making a Suspect Confess (EXCLUSIVE)

Oxygen’s new docuseries Criminal Confessions explores the psychological face-off between investigators and suspects inside the interrogation room. In each hour-long episode, viewers hear from real-life detectives, who explain what it takes to get a culprit to finally admit to their crime. Sgt. Brian Harris of Houston, TX — who appears on the show — spoke exclusively with In Touch and revealed the secret to a successful confession.

“The biggest challenge is developing a story to help the person have that ‘Aha!’ moment in a way that will let them see that it is to their advantage to make an admission. It is always a self- serving admission,” Brian told us. “You have to keep in mind I never make them do anything; it is always their choice and that is what is so powerful about their own words.”

Serial Killer Admits On ‘Criminal Confessions’: ‘Honestly, I Wanted To See Her Femur’

An episode of Criminal Confessions reveals the moments that serial killer Sean Vincent Gillis confessed to killing and mutilating eight women between 1994 and 2003 in Baton Rouge.

Even though police had DNA evidence linking Gillis to three of the victims, they wanted a confession out of him.

“I’ve been doing this since 1978 and you are one of the best, if not the best I’ve ever seen.”Maj. Bryan White, chief of detectives for the East Baton Rouge Police told the serial killer, in hopes of getting him to open up. Police said Gillis wanted respect so their strategy was to play up that authorities were “impressed” with his work. That strategy appeared to be effective. Eventually Gillis referred to himself as a monster.

“Tell me about this monster,” White said gently.

“One minute you’re a person like you are. The next minute you’re not.”

“I think you’re tired of this monster,” White said.

“You have no
