New Program Descriptions

G4

 

MAD (Season 1) Wednesdays at 9 & 9:15pm ET/PT starting Wednesday, January 5

Inspired by the iconic MAD magazine, published by DC Comics, MAD is an animated sketch-comedy series that uses a twisted mix of humor and animation styles in order to pull back the curtain and expose the dirty truth behind movies, TV shows and games. Alfred E. Neuman, Spy vs. Spy and other classic MAD icons are on board to help skewer the viewer, because no one and no thing is safe from MAD's barrage of pop culture parodies and punch lines.

 

The Biography Channel

 

Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal (Season 1) Tuesdays at 10pm ET/PT starting Tuesday, January 4

Profiles children who live with the incredible secret of having psychic abilities. Feeling scared and isolated, these kids have nowhere to turn...until now. Help is on the way in the form of psychic/mediums Chip Coffey, Chris Fleming and Kim Russo, who themselves grew up with these senses, along with licensed psychotherapist Edy Nathan, who has more than 20 years experience.In this intense journey, the experts draw on their own personal experiences, training and unique outlook on life to bring together these troubled kids and teach them how to harness their abilities and show them they're not alone in this world.

 

 

Hoarders (Season 1) Monday to Friday at 10pm ET/PT starting Monday, January 31

Hoarders is a fascinating look inside the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of  personal crisis. From the outside their homes look normal, but inside these families are struggling. From newspapers to bags of new clothing, each person has latched on to something different and can't seem to let go. In each episode, Hoarders will enlist the help of a therapist, a professional organizer or a cleaning crew who will guide the hoarders through the clean-up process and give them the tools they need to keep their behavior in check.
