This week’s episode of Obsession: Dark Desires on Investigation Discovery tells the story of Olympic gold-medalist Sheila Taormina and her ordeal at the hands of stalker James Conyers.
Conyers spent five years in prison for stalking the athlete, who competed at four Olympics from 1996 to 2008 and was the first woman to qualify for the games in three different sports — swimming, triathlon and modern pentathlon.
In 2002 she was contacted by apparant wannabe triathlete Conyers who said he wanted lessons so he could improve at the sport.

On tonight’s Obsession: Dark Desires show, which is titled “High School Reunion,” Latasha Edwards believes that she has met the man of her dreams until his jealous ways and violent behavior make her realize that she never really knew him at all.

The Voice(NBC, 8 p.m.): It’s Christmas time for NBC, y’all. That’s right—The Voice is back, and NBC’s never letting it go again. It’s the 12th season premiere of The Voice, the “Blind Auditions” (“Night 1”!), and Gwen Stefani is back in the coach’s seat with Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. The only question is: Who will be “The Voice”this time around? Actually, who was “The Voice” last time? And the time before that? We know NBC doesn’t have time to answer such questions. It has ratings to get.
After a public dispute late last week, Sky customers feared documentary and sports broadcaster Discovery UK was set to pull its programming from the satellite broadcaster at midnight on Tuesday.
However, last-minute talks between the two parties have culminated in a deal to save the partnership, meaning Sky subscribers will still be able to watch the 12 Discovery channels, which include Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Quest and both Eurosport channels.
Although the full nature of the settlement hasn’t been disclosed, both sides are claiming victory.
Stephen van Rooyen, CEO UK ROI of Sky, claimed an agreement was reached after Discovery accepted a proposal Sky had previously put forward before the public dispute started: “The deal has been concluded on the right terms after Discovery accepted the proposal we gave them over a week ago. This is a good outcome for all Sky customers.”

Sky’s dispute with the Discovery Channel – your questions answered
In a fairly major public dispute, broadcaster Discovery UK is threatening to pull its programming from Sky after accusing the service of “[refusing] to pay a fair price” for its 12 channels (which include Eurosport, Animal Planet, TLC and the Discovery Channel, among others).
In a statement, Discovery claims that it is currently paid less by Sky than it was a decade ago (despite the increased cost for customers since then), and has said that if the situation is not resolved by the end of the month they’ll pull all their channels from Sky.
Commenting that negotiations had “reached an impasse,” Discovery accused Sky of using its “dominant market position to further its own commercial interest,” adding that “the vitality of independent broadcasters like Discovery and plurality in TV is under threat.”
Levasseur and Mohandie meet at a diner, where they decide to conduct some interviews for the investigation, despite not haven’t been briefed ahead of time. Levasseur sits down with Tanya Brown, sister of Nicole Brown Simpson, and soon the conversation turns to the murder. It becomes clear that Levasseur is still working on his reality-show, uh, “acting” skills; a dramatic exhale he makes at one point would make every single Kardashian and Real Housewife roll her eyes.
