The Oxygen Channel Is Becoming A True-Crime, All The Time Network

Now, the last remaining sliver of Oxygen’s former programming schedule is “Snapped,” which has been wearing in its “re-cre” formula over 20 seasons, dramatically recreating murders. Some of the show’s successes may have something to do with its unexpected subject material: “Snapped” is all about women killers, or suspected killers, spinning from them salacious tales of adultery, greed, fear and revenge when statistics show that women are overwhelmingly victims of domestic violence, not its perpetrators. It’s been a longtime hit for the network, and it’s not going anywhere, at least as long as women continue harming their husbands, boyfriends, abusers that share one or neither of those labels, and, sometimes, children.

TV’s Oxygen network to focus on crime stories – Winston

The Oxygen television network is looking behind bars for inspiration.

The NBC Universal-owned network said that starting this summer it will focus its programming on crime stories that appeal to women, joining an already crowded television genre.

Its other programming, such as “Bad Girls Club” and “Battle of the Ex-Besties,” will be phased out.

Oxygen’s saga speaks to the survival pressures faced by many cable networks. NBC Universal recently decided to shut down its Esquire network and make it digital-only. When Oxygen’s launch was announced in 1998 with prominent backers that included Oprah Winfrey, the goal was to make it a general interest network for women to compete with Lifetime, only hipper.

The change won’t be completely abrupt. Oxygen has seen success during the past year with a prime-time block of crime-oriented programming on three nights, recently increasing it to four. That helped Oxygen to a 42 percent increase

Oxygen to rebrand as crime-focused network geared to women

Oxygen has officially made the decision to rebrand itself as a crime destination network geared toward women.

Frances Berwick, president of lifestyle networks for NBC Universal Cable, said Oxygen will take cues from the successful podcast Serial and Netflix’s Making a Murderer in finding stories that viewers can follow to guess the outcome of true crime stories.

‘We felt like we could do that in a different way than there is currently out there, one that appeals to a younger demographic,’ Berwick said.

The NBC Universal-owned network said Wednesday that starting this summer, it will focus its programming on crime stories that appeal to women, joining an already crowded television genre.

Veteran producer Dick Wolf is behind the upcoming series, Cold Justice, which features former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and a team of detectives as they try to solve real-life crime cases across the

The change won’t be completely abrupt. Oxygen has seen success during the past year with a prime-time block of crime-oriented programming on three nights, recently increasing it to four. That helped Oxygen to a 42 percent increase in viewers during the last three months of 2016 compared to the same period a year earlier, the Nielsen company said.

Crime stories are easily found onscreen now, from the dramas on CBS’ prime-time lineup to Investigation Discovery, probably the most successful cable network launch in some time.
