What’s On TV This Week (October 10 – October 16)
*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”.
The Halloween spirits are taking over the airwaves, but there are still plenty of martial arts on TV this week! WALKER TEXAS RANGER is still a constant, although a couple channels have reduced the number of episodes they show each week. WGN runs seven episodes starting at 9:00 AM on Tuesday and Thursday and another four Saturday also starting at 9:00 AM. Grit airs four episodes every single day starting at 7:00 PM and Inspiration shows the adventures of Cordell Walker and friends Monday through Thursday at 9:00 and 10:00 PM, Friday at 9:00 PM and Tuesday through Saturday mornings at 2:00 AM.
