The Profit 3

When Marcus Lemonis isn't running his multi-billion dollar company, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal.

In an effort to help struggling small businesses, Marcus invests substantial amounts of his own money for a percentage of the business and its profits.

In the Season 3 premiere, "SJC Drums": Mike and Scott Ciprari started SJC Drums in their grandma's basement and quickly transformed it into a million-dollar company.

But sibling rivalry and clashing egos forced Scott out of the company, leaving Mike in charge and SJC in free fall.

Can Marcus resolve this family feud and turn a money-burner into a money-earner?

The Vet Life 2

Join the world of charismatic veterinarians - Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne - who all moved to Houston, Texas to open a full-service veterinarian hospital and animal shelter together.

The series captures the vets' lives as they juggle running a new business with managing their family lives, filled with spouses, parents, in-laws, children, pets and friends, as well as documenting the intense moments saving the lives of animals at their clinic.

Coming up in the second season, a health scare puts the brakes on Dr Blue's dreams of motorcycle riding with his brother, and it's time for a big move for Dr. Ross and Tauvia.

Meanwhile, the vets deal with the everyday business of treating sick animals; from treating baby kangaroos and bearded dragons to a Boxer dog with a tumour and a pig that's over-affectionate with the furniture.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Dunk-a-Doctor": Dr. Ross treats baby kangaroos and meets the owners of a petting zoo to plan an event at the clinic.

And Dr. Lavigne treats a vision and hearing-impaired Great Dane.

No case is the same for these vets as they navigate the trials and tribulations of life in Texas.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Everybody Hates the Guidance Counselor": After getting bullied Caruso stops bullying everyone else which upsets the balance at school.
