Would you risk your marriage to save it?
That's the tagline to USA's new drama Satisfaction (10/9c, USA), which producers have described as a "post-modern love story." What does that mean? Well, escorts for one.
Married for 18 years with a 16-year-old daughter, Neil (Matt Passmore) and Grace Truman (Stephanie Szostak) have hit a wall in not only their marriage, but professional lives. After one helluva day at his tedious investment banking job, Neil discovers Grace having sex with an escort (Blair Redford), unbeknownst to her.

Changes are ahead for Switched at Birth's Bay, who this season will deal with new schoolmates, a new art class, a new attitude and an unexpected ally.
Marching to the beat of her own drum since Season 1, Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) finally found her place after getting to know her birth parents Regina (Constance Marie) and Angelo (Gilles Marini), building a solid friendship with Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and leaving her privileged private school for Carlton School for the Deaf, which she fought to keep open. But when the third season premieres (Monday at 8/7c, ABC Family), Bay will feel somewhat lost again as she recovers from believing she was cheated on (a lie Blair Redford's Ty told her so she'd get over him while deployed in Afghanistan) and starts her senior year alongside some of Kansas City's toughest inner city kids.
