TV Guy: Wallow in the lurid, or reach for the stars? – recordonline.com – Times Herald

Prime-time’s true-crime offerings continue to grow.

Oxygen, once a “women’s network” to rival Lifetime, has turned itself into an “all-crime, all the time” destination, home to original true-crime series (“Cold Justice,” “It Takes a Killer,” “Snapped” and “The Jury Speaks”) as well as procedurals.

Tonight’s lineup consists of three consecutive episodes of “CSI.”

The NBC-owned network plans new series with familiar faces, including Soledad O’Brien, Nancy Grace and Ice-T, who will host “Ice Cold Murders.”

Oxygen is just catching up to rival ID in the true-crime department.

On that network, once known as “Investigation Discovery,” things tend to be a tad more tabloid. Tonight’s premiere of “Shattered” (10 p.m., TV-14) focuses on victims and those left behind by horrific crimes: A father recalls the horrifying moment he discovered that his son had been dismembered; a woman describes her imprisonment in a footlocker, and a policeman remembers a rookie assignment that

This season of “Bachelor In Paradise” has courted controversy following the decision to halt production after questions were raised about one contestant’s ability to consent during an intoxicated sexual encounter.

Warner Bros. had investigated the situation and found no misconduct had occurred, leading many to wonder whether the two castmates involved, Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, would return to the series.
