NEW CBS LOGOs_ALL_2012The District (2004) Season 4 Eps 4-22
Weekdays 19:20 and 09:20. Omnibus Saturdays 13:30

The District, a gritty crime drama inspired by the real-life experiences of former New York Deputy Police Commissioner, Jack Maple, continues with season four.

Mayor of Washington, D.C. Mannion (Craig T. Nelson) is a tenacious champion of the underdog and an avowed crime fighter whose revolutionary tactics resulted in a 50% drop in crime in Boston and in Newark, N.J. When the mayor of Washington, D.C., Ethan Baker (John Amos), needs to hire a new police chief, his young deputy mayor, Mary Ann Mitchell (Jayne Brook) champions Mannion for the job, hoping the outsider can clean up the streets of her home town.
The newest episodes of season 4 see Mannion beg Sherry to return to the district to work for him, the hunt for a modern day Robin Hood, and the killing of a woman who is about to testify in an organised crime trial.

Walker, Texas Ranger (1996) Season 4 Eps 4-24

Weekdays 20:10 and 12:40. Omnibus Sundays 19:20

Texas Ranger, Cordell Walker, one of the last old-fashioned heroes in the West, is a protective friend but a relentless foe who will stop at nothing to bring a criminal to justice. Starring the legendary Chuck Norris, this high-kicking adventure series features Walker, a man of few words and many swift moves. Walker’s crime fighting techniques are routed in the rugged traditions of the Old West. His partner Jimmy Trivette (Clarence Gilyard – Die Hard, Top Gun, Matlock) is a slick ex-football star with a cutting edge intellect and a pop-psychology approach to criminology.

Together this mismatched pair is trying to wrest control of the American Southwest from the criminal elements living there. In the process, the conflict between these two Lone Star lawmen makes them one of the most entertaining law enforcement teams ever assembled for television.

Season 4’s latest episodes see Walker solve a murder with the help of only one eyewitness: a dog, Alex is reunited with her estranged, alcoholic father, and Walker is haunted by memories of his beloved fiancée when her killer is released from prison.
