What’s On TV This Week (August 15 – August 21)

*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.”*

Things are picking up a little this week, but there are still a couple of slow days. You still have WALKER TEXAS RANGER at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 AM Monday through Thursday on WGN, weekdays at 2:00 and 3:00 AM, and again at 10:00 and 11:00 PM, with Sunday night airings at 8:00 and 9:00 PM all on Inspiration and every night of the week at 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, and 10:00 PM on Grit. If that isn’t enough TV for you, CBS is still running new episodes of RUSH HOUR Saturday at 8:00 PM. If you do not have cable/satellite, you might find Grit locally as a digital sub-station.

What? You want movies? No problem. Monday is all Sony, though, with SHADOW MAN (2006) at 8:20 PM, BLOOD AND BONE (2009) at 10:00 PM and ARENA (2011) at 11:40 PM.

Tuesday sees Sony rewiring BLOOD AND BONE at 1:20 AM, and ARENA at 3:00, with Spike throwing in showings of THE EXPENDABLES (2010) at 11:30 AM and 5:00 PM.

Wednesday only gives us SAFE (2012) at 12:30 PM and HOMEFRONT (2013) at 3:00 PM, both on Spike, and HERE COMES THE BOOM (2012) at 6:00 PM on FXX.

Okay, that is like half the week… I hear you, you are worried that this is another slow week. And then comes Thursday.

Thursday starts late with ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN (1967) at 3:00 PM on El Rey, followed by HERE COMES THE BOOM at 4:00 PM on FXX. Sony has UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: THE RETURN (1999) at 4:45 PM, and UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: DAY OF RECKONING (2012) at 6:10 PM. El Rey brings RETURN OF THE ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN (1969) at 6:30 PM, Sony has AN EYE FOR AN EYE (1981) at 8:10, then El Rey offers up THE NEW ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN (1971) at 8:30 PM, followed by ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN at 10:30 PM, RETURN OF THE ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN at 1:00 AM Friday, and NEW ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN at 3:00 AM.

Friday continues with BLOOD AND BONE at 3:35 PM,  ARENA at 5:00 PM, SHADOW MAN at 6:40, and HAYWIRE (2012) at 10:20 PM, all on Sony.

Saturday’s only offerings are HAYWIRE at midnight on Sony, and TRANSPORTER 3 (2008) at 1:00 PM on TNT.

Sunday is the best day of the week. HIGHLANDER: THE FINAL DIMENSION (1994) kicks of the day at 3:00 AM on El Rey. MGM has ENTER THE NINJA (1981) at 11:45 AM. El Rey then has RETURN OF THE SENTIMENTAL SWORDSMAN (1981) at 12:15 PM, PERILS OF THE SENTIMENTAL SWORDSMAN (1982) at 2:30 PM, and THE BRAVE ARCHER (1977) at 4:30 PM. TNT is showing RUSH HOUR (1998) at 5:00 PM, and RUSH HOUR 2 (2001) at 7:00 PM. Also at 7:00 PM is BRAVE ARCHER 2 (1978) on El Rey. MGM has LONE WOLF MCQUADE (1983) at 8:00 PM and then El Rey finishes off the week with BRAVE ARCHER 3 (1981) at 9:30 PM and ONE ARMED SWORDSMAN at 11:30 PM.
