Then from 6pm-3am, its more drama stacks with Cold Case on Wednesdays, Blue Bloods on Thursdays, Law & Order: Criminal Intent on Fridays, and Criminal Minds on Saturdays (with Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior at 9pm & 10pm). The Listener actually also airs Saturdays from 11pm-3am. On Sundays, we have a children's E/I block from 9am-12pm then it is ION Television at the movies, with blockbuster films from 12pm-3am.
