What’s On TV This Week (May 8 – May 14)

*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”.
This week starts slow, but gets busy. Plus, El Rey is still digging into the vaults weekday mornings to find some rare gems! Let’s start with the TV shows, though. WALKER, TEXAS RANGER is on WGN at 9:00 AM on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and on Inspiration at 2:00 AM, 3:00 AM and 9:00 PM weekdays. INTO THE BADLANDS is still in its second season on AMC with airings at midnight, 1:00 AM and 3:00 AM Monday, 3:00 AM Saturday, Sunday at 9:00 PM with the new episode at 10:00 PM.
