TEEN MOM Monday, Jan. 4 at 10 p.m. ET Two-Hour Season 5B Premiere
The new season picks up as Amber fights for custody of her daughter Leah, Catelynn and Tyler tie the knot while raising their newborn child, and continue to struggle with the guilt of giving up Carly for adoption. Farrah works on her relationships while trying to build her career, and Maci embraces motherhood for a second time around.

TEEN WOLF Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 9 p.m. ET Season 5B Premiere
The supernatural series returns with Scott (Tyler Posey, LINCOLN HEIGHTS) as he struggles to put his pack back together while dealing with crushing losses, and the Dread Doctors’ final creation known as The Beast, brings terror to the town of Beacon Hills.

THE SHANNARA CHRONICLES Tuesday, Jan. 5 at 10 p.m. ET Two-Hour Series Premiere
Based on the sweeping, best-selling fantasy book series by Terry Brooks, the 10-episode, one-hour drama is set thousands of years in the future, and follows three heroes, Elf-Human hybrid Wil (Austin Butler, THE CARRIE DIARIES), Elvin Princess Amberle (Poppy Drayton, WHEN CALLS THE HEART) and Human Rover Eretria (Ivana Baquero, Pan’s Labyrinth), as they embark on a quest to stop an evil Demon army from destroying the world.

GREATEST PARTY STORY EVER Thursday, Jan. 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET Series Premiere
The all-new half-hour series showcases real and hysterical people telling their most epic and outrageous tales. Colourful and diverse animations accompany the laugh-out-loud memories to give these sometimes naughty stories an extra punch.

WILD RIDEThursday, Jan. 21 at 11:30 p.m. ET Series Premiere
In the series premiere of this Canadian adventure series, 15 backpackers take on the road-trip challenge of a lifetime. With just three weeks to reach their destination, they attempt a trek across three Southeast Asian countries, and arrive at Thailand’s legendary Full Moon Party. The catch is, their mode of transportation is the infamous Tuk Tuk: a three wheeled vehicle which travels at a maximum speed of 60km/h.
