LOVE IN PARADISE - Saturday, January 2, 9 pm ET/PT, 8C

Avery Ford, (Luke Perry) a famous actor in popular Western films, is sent by his manager to a Montana dude ranch where he's supposed to rustle up business for the ranch while also re-energizing his flagging career. Heather Twain (Emmanuelle Vaugier), whose family owns the ranch, is a natural beauty who can ride, rope, fix the truck, whip up a meal that'll knock your socks off -- there's nothing she can't do. Though miffed when she realizes he's a phony, a city slicker who knows nothing about being a cowboy, she can't help but feel something for the well-meaning, awkward Avery.

MY LIFE AS A DOORMAT - Saturday, January 9, 9 pm ET/PT, 8C

Leah Townsend (Holly Marie Combs) coasts along in a relationship with the ever-predictable Edward (Randal Edwards) who, after a minor disagreement at Edward's faculty party, enrolls her in a conflict management class. There, she meets Cinco Dublin (Ben Bass), a shock-jock radio host attending the class by court order. His family has a prickly past with the Townsends: Cinco Sr. (Corbin Bernsen), a renowned journalist, went toe-to-toe with Senator Townsend when he was in office. Leah bristles at Cinco's brashness, but begins to see some cracks in his facade and ultimately finds herself torn between two men. As Leah learns how to be comfortable with conflict in her daily life, can she resolve the one deep within her heart?

LOVE ON THE SIDELINES - Saturday, January 16, 9 pm ET/PT, 8C

Laurel Welk (Emily Kinney) is an out of work aspiring fashion designer who lands a job as personal assistant to superstar quarterback, Danny Holland (John Reardon). Holland's been sidelined with an injury and the last thing he wants is a female assistant, particularly one who knows nothing about football. But the two opposites strike a bargain and agree to work together on a trial basis. While Laurel struggles to master her job, knowing she's in way over her head, Danny struggles to maintain his star image even though he's concerned his injury might impact his career. Things get even more complicated when employer and employee start to notice there's more to the other than meets the eye. Will they find is love on the sidelines? Joe Theismann also stars.

UNLEASHING MR. DARCY - Saturday, January 23, 9 pm ET/PT, 8C

In this modern day spin on "Pride & Prejudice," Elizabeth Scott (Cindy Busby), is fishing for direction in her life and gets the opportunity to professionally show her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in a fancy New York dog show. Dog show judge Donovan Darcy (Ryan Paevey) comes across as aristocratic and rude and a chain of misunderstandings unfold during the competition, complicating their mutual attraction. In true Jane Austen fashion, Elizabeth and Donovan begin to see the error of their ways and it turns out Mr. Darcy is far more kind and interesting than Elizabeth ever imagined. Frances Fisher also stars.
