My Favorite New Channel Is Filled With Blood, Murder, And Susan Lucci

I like it just as much as my other favorite relatively new channel I told you about.

This one is Investigation Discovery (ID) -- it's 23 on my dial -- and it fills the void left by truTV not showing Forensic Files as much as they used to, for some reason that should be illegal.

I live for tales of horrid misdeeds, especially when the culprits leave tell-tale clues that lead to them getting the maximum jail time.

And ID teems with these horrible miscreants, as chided by grim-looking hosts (including my favorite, a lady who looks like an angry leprechaun).

The shows include winners like Deadly Women, Hostage: Do or Die, Homicide Hunter, Disappeared, Scorned: Love Kills, and of course the ever popular Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets.

The programming is laced with memorable wisdoms like "All I remember about her is that she was crazy" and "You don't bring a gun to a marshmallow roast."

I also loved the Texas socialite who survived being shot in the breast by her crazed ex-husband because she had silicone implants that caused the bullet to ricochet!

And she only had those implants because her crazed ex-husband had ordered her to get them!

If you don't get this channel for some reason, kill to get it.

PS: Susan Lucci is going to host a show on the channel! It just got even better!

Check out "Behind Mansion Walls" -- hosted by a queenie younger version of Dominick Dunne (who wears outrageous Pee-Wee Herman bowties); so fun to wallow in the deadly decadence of the rich and famous -- you feel the need to take a long hot shower after each episode to wash off the dirt!

It's amazing how Texas is such a fertile breeding ground for crazy...too big for its britches, I guess.

I know exactly who you mean by the angry leprechaun.

I love the channel except for the "Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets" show, where they have actors doing the voices of the murdered people and saying things they might have said. Awful!!

Behind Mansion Walls is incredible. Homicide Hunter, however, is absolutely my favorite: Lt. Joe Kenda will not raise his voice, no matter how depraved the suspect. And you're right, Michael, WTF is up with the decrease in Forensic Files repeats???
