There's oil in them hills of Kentucky, but first ya gotta find it, then ya gotta drill for it. "Backyard Oil" follows the fortunes -- and, at times, misfortunes -- a group of wildcat oil drillers face in south central Kentucky, where there are millions to be made in the oil business if you have the right equipment, the perfect location and a little bit of good luck. The motley crew includes veteran oil man Jimmy Reliford and his sidekick, Mad Dog; Travis Coomer, whose gusher in his front yard earns him about $300,000 a month; and the Pages, a father-son team who can't seem to agree on anything other than the desire to strike it rich.

That's where Dirk Vermin enters the picture, giving a second chance to people in Vegas who have regrettable pictures decorating their skin. The reality series "Bad Ink" follows tattoo artist Vermin and his friend Ruckus as they scour the city to find terrible ink jobs, and for the lucky few among the convention goers, tourists and locals alike that Dirk and Ruckus find with cringe-worthy tattoos, Dirk works his magic to transform the eyesores into noteworthy masterpieces.

In the Amish settlement in Lancaster County, Pa., keeping the peace and carrying out justice is the responsibility of Lebanon Levi. He doesn't hold the title of police chief, yet he holds all the power of one, if not more. Levi exists above the law and occupies the role of police, judge and jury in a community that, untrusting of traditional law enforcement authorities, relies on a group of men for protection and justice. "Amish Mafia" depicts the work carried out by Levi and three of his assistants, namely keeping outside forces from infiltrating the Amish community, while keeping the principles and morality within the community in check. The Amish church, according to Discovery, denies the existence of this unique "police" force, so the network says some identifying information in the series has been changed, and some scenes are re-enacted.
