Now in its fifth season, The New Detectives is one of the Discovery Channel's highest-rated prime time weekly series. The New Detectives: Case Studies in Forensic Science premiered in 1997 and is now averaging a 1.87 rating, says Discovery. The show, with 54 episodes already televised, provides an in-depth look at how forensic science is used in solving crimes. The hour-long original series is produced by New Dominion Pictures and airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. (ET) and again on Saturday at 7 p.m. (ET).
