*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”.
Sigh… it is another weird week and another great week for KICKBOXER movies (without JCVD in them). Let’s start off with the TV stuff. WALKER TEXAS RANGER is on weekdays at 9:00 AM on WGN and 9:00 PM on Inspiration, who also airs it Tuesday through Friday at 2:00 and 3:00 AM, Saturday at 3:00 AM and Sunday at 8:00 and 9:00 PM. Meanwhile, El Rey has the non-fiction MAN AT ARMS Tuesday at 4:00 PMThursday at 8:00 and 10:00 PM and Sunday at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM.
