Lockup Raw: Survival 101, 12 a.m.
Surviving prison takes many forms: For sex offenders, the lowest in the inmate pecking order, protective housing is the only way to avoid becoming a victim of frequent assaults or extortion. Then, in a twist, we profile one inmate, who feels his survival depends on staying in prison. And even though all inmates need to eat to survive, prison food has plenty of critics.

Lockup Raw: Killers Among Us, 1 a.m.
One of the most intense things our Lockup field crews encounter when they go inside a maximum security prison is conducting interviews with murderers, pften sitting five or six feet away from a very violent offender.  But more often than not, they leave those conversations feeling like they just talked to somebody who’s a normal, everyday guy.

Lockup New Mexico: Extended Stay — War, 2 a.m.
After gang members in the maximum-security Level 6 are able to overpower an officer in the recreation area, take her keys, and stab a rival gang member numerous times, prison officials initiate shakedowns. But this type of violent incident simply adds to the tension already felt in the Penitentiary of New Mexico's Supermax facility, both for inmates, like Michael Daily, who spent five years under protective custody for his own safety, and the staff, which gets worn down by the threat of a possible gang attack.

All of our stories have been caught on camera. They are situations no one wants to find themselves in... Situations no one wants to confront...But, what would you do...If you came upon a man trapped inside a car that's engulfed in flames...or if you saw a woman silently slump to the floor of an emergency room?  What if you witnessed a life or death struggle over a gun...or if you were part of a crowd patiently waiting for a pizza, when all hell breaks loose? What if you witnessed a 78-year-old man smashed to the ground by hit and run drivers...Or if suddenly, without warning... New York's Grand Central Station came to a bizarre and screeching halt? In each instance of drama, danger and decision...Would you get involved or look away? Would you help or merely watch?

Lockup New Mexico: Extended Stay - Get Out and Stay Out, 9 p.m.
For some inmates at the Penitentiary of New Mexico , the only way out of prison is "paroling legit," or leaving in a body bag. Others earn a lump sum of good time by completing programs or holding a prison job, making them eligible for earlier parole, while a few will take any chance to try to escape.

MSNBC Undecover: Sex Slaves in America, 8 p.m.
It’s a story that begins in the ruins of the shattered Soviet Empire and ends in America's Heartland.  A tragic, but all too familiar tale – young women in eastern Europe chasing dreams of a better life, but lured, instead, into sexual slavery.  It’s a vast global crime – human rights advocates estimate that every year almost a million women worldwide are illegally bought and sold as sex slaves, and plenty of them are ending up in the U.S.  “MSNBC Undercover: Sex Slaves in America,” hosted by NBC’s Meredith Vieira, goes inside the human trafficking and underground prostitution scene in the United States.

MSNBC Undercover: Sex Slaves in the Suburbs, 9 p.m.
They're all American, raised to believe that it could never happen to them; that sex slavery is a nightmare reserved only for young foreign girls. But it's a million dollar industry…that preys on American girls, who are kidnapped and coerced. It's the sex industry's dirty little secret about young women who are forced to sell their bodies in order to survive.

Dead Men Talking: Eternal Neighbors [PREMIERE], 10 p.m.
This episode gives viewers an insider's look at one very busy weekend in the Macomb County Medical Examiner's office. One of the four cases investigated in this hour is the death of Jihad Srour, a young father of four who took his family to the beach one summer day, only to end up drowning while out for a swim. Was it a straightforward drowning, or did he have a heart attack in the water? Either way, his wife wants to know: Where were the lifeguards? Why didn't they save her husband?
