*TV listings are as fluid as a tai chi fighter and may change without notice. Channels may also vary schedules by region. Movie titles and dates are based on the channel listings and usually reflect US release versions. The scriptures say “the wise man always checks local listings”.
Okay! Let’s get into it. First up (as always) is WALKER, TEXAS RANGER. This show is on so much it really should just have its own channel! WGN has it at 9:00 AM Monday through Thursday this week, then Grit TV is showing it every weekday at 11:00 AM and every night of the week at 7:008:009:00 and 10:00 PMTuesday through Saturday they also slip in a couple episodes at 1:00 and 2:00 AMTuesday through Friday Inspiration shows early morning episodes at 2:00 and 3:00 AM (just 3:00 AM on Saturday). They also show WALKER at 9:00 PM weeknights and at 8:00 and 9:00 PM Sunday.
