The Murders

Rookie homicide detective Kate Jameson (Jessica Lucas) is the biracial daughter of an ambitious and well-loved mother, and her dearly departed father who was a decorated Vancouver police officer killed in the line of duty.

With the fight for justice deeply rooted in her, Kate's only desire is to be a good cop like her father.

She's determined to make her mark in Homicide, the MPD's most coveted assignment.

But things go horribly awry on her first day, when Kate breaks the number one rule of policing — never leave your gun unattended.

Haunted by her fatal mistake, a driven Kate will seek to make amends through every case and ongoing investigation – including that of a mysterious killer with a particular obsession with Detective Jameson.

Animal Babies: First Year on Earth

This series explores three incredible and heart-warming episodes about growing up in the wild.

The great plains of Africa are home to some of the most iconic animals on the planet.

Safari babies face immense challenges, as they compete for food, and there's always dangerous predators lurking around the African savannah.

Many animals that live in water come on land to have their babies, which can become a huge challenge for water babies to overcome.

As they begin to get in the water for the first time, and face their first swimming lessons, there are always deadly obstacles in the way.

For Mountain Babies, it can be extremely difficult to survive on the sheer cliffs and snowy mountainsides, as they must battle extreme weather and hungry predators.

They must learn fast if they're going to make it to adulthood.

The modern dating scene is tough. But at least we can laugh about it, right?


Join E! as the outspoken comedians of Dating: No Filter return for a second season and take a look at real-life singletons on a blind date, providing an outrageous running commentary as they try to meet and mate with their perfect match.

From laugh-out-loud OMG moments to heart-warming romance, get ready for a brutally honest new look at the search for love.

In the first episode of the new season, country girl Alex is looking for a devout man in Elijah; and special effects makeup artist Taylor and bud-tender Lam commemorate their first date by getting sentimental tattoos together.

In the second episode of the weekly double bill, William and Andrew take on a risky high-wire ropes course, and Solomon and Maya go chocolate making.

Forged in Fire 6

Genre: Reality Competition

Forged in Fire 6

Swords may not be the weapon of choice for many people nowadays, with more advanced weaponry readily available, but that doesn't stop some from continuing to work as bladesmiths.

Forged in Fire tests some of the best in the field as they attempt to re-create some of history's most iconic edged weapons.

Former Army Ranger Wil Willis hosts the competition series that sees four master bladesmiths challenged in each episode to forge the swords, which are then tested by a panel of judges consisting of J. Neilson, who has been making knives for more than 20 years; hand-to-hand combat specialist Doug Marcaida; and David Baker, an authority on replicating period-accurate weaponry.

The contestant who survives the elimination rounds and wins the episode's contest earns a cash prize and the title of Forged in Fire champion.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Long Road to Redemption Part 1": In this first half of a two-part Road to Redemption competition, seven past competitors who fell short return to the forge for a second chance at glory and redemption.

But these smiths aren't merely trying to beat one another: for the first time ever, they'll have to create four different weapons and survive four rounds of testing in order to earn the title and a $20,000 prize.

The bladesmiths begin outside using the dreaded coal forge. Many battle burnt metal, and one competitor will never even make it into the Forge.

After a round of testing, five smiths return to their home forges to create a perfect competition chopper.

Which four will produce blades that perform and keep their quest of becoming a Forged in Fire Champion alive?
