Oxygen Eyes Crime-Themed Makeover

Ever since its launch, NBCUniversal’s Oxygen has struggled with identity as just another female-focused cable network among a slew of others, including Lifetime, Bravo, E! and WEtv. It finally might have found its identity in crime programming, which has done surprisingly well.
