What’s On TV This Week (May 22 – May 28)

*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”.

Another great week for the followers of the foot and fist way but be warned it tapers off on the weekend, partially because El Rey is showing a marathon of the entire run of the 1970’s INCREDIBLE HULK TV show over the weekend instead of their normal programming and partially because INTO THE BADLANDS season two is over. If you are a fan, you can rest secure knowing that it was renewed for season three. Speaking of INTO THE BADLANDS, AMC is running episodes at midnight, 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM

Monday and 5:00 AM on Thursday. WALKER, TEXAS RANGER is still on, too. WGN is running it Monday through Friday at 9:00 AM and Inspiration TV is airing it Monday through Friday at 9:00 PM, with additional airings at 2:00 and 3:00 Tuesday through Friday, a single 3:00 AM episode on Saturday and two episodes Sunday night starting at 8:00 PM.
