Lifetime is an American basic cable channel owned by Hearst Communications and The Walt Disney Company. It is part of Lifetime Entertainment Services, a division of A&E Networks. It includes programming aimed toward women or with women in leading roles. As of January 2016, it was received by 93.8 million American households.
Lifetime's original material is currently made-for-TV films and reality shows like Dance Moms. According to the network, it "is committed to providing the best quality entertainment and information programs, as well as advocating for a wide range of problems affecting women and their families."
Lifetime used to air a variety of game programs during the day and early evenings, including Supermarket Sweep, Shop 'til You Drop, Rodeo Drive, Born Lucky, and Debt. Lifetime also developed one original game show (Who Knows You Best?, starring Gina St. John), based on The Newlywed Game, which was canceled after one season. Previously, the network produced scripted dramas such as Devious Maids and Witches of East End.
During the day, the network airs a mix of second-run syndicated series (such as How I Met Your Mother and Grey's Anatomy). Lifetime has previously aired various programs that were previously broadcast on other networks. It purchased the rights to The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd from its original broadcaster, NBC, in 1988 and produced 39 further episodes of the series.
According to reports, Lifetime did not renew the show due to low ratings and hefty production costs. In late 2011, the network resumed airing new episodes of America's Most Wanted, a series discontinued by Fox at the end of the 2010-11 season, but special feature episodes continued to air on Fox on an irregular basis. Before canceling the show in 2013, Lifetime aired more than 40 fresh episodes.
Lifetime simulcast the debut of Disney Channel's original film Descendants 2 on July 21, 2017, marking the first time the channel aired a program developed for a wholly-owned Disney subsidiary.
Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance, a narrative about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship, premiered on Lifetime in 2018.

Lifetime is known for creating original films in addition to feature films and made-for-television pictures that have previously aired on other networks. These films are produced by Lifetime Pictures, a division of the network. In 1998, a movie-focused spin-off channel called colloquially the Lifetime Movie Network or "LMN" due to periodic rebranding was created.
Lifetime periodically aired coverage of women's professional sports in its early years. Lifetime, along with NBC and ESPN, broadcast the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) from its inception in 1997 through 2000. In the year 2000, Lifetime replaced its live broadcasts with an original series on the lives of WNBA players.
The network claimed that it would focus on "story" rather than event coverage and that the program package would be moved to ESPN2. In 1998, the network aired the LPGA's Tournament of Champions as part of an agreement with Raycom Sports.
A&E Networks bought an equity share in the National Women's Soccer League in February 2017 and announced that Lifetime would begin broadcasting a weekly Saturday afternoon game in the 2017 season.
