Criminal Minds Is Heading To A New Cable Channel, And There Will Be Marathons

The December 16 block of episodes won’t be the only Criminal Minds mega marathon on WE tv, however. The network will continue to air “all-day binge-a-thons” on Saturdays, although not for quite as long as the first. On Saturdays following December 16, Criminal Minds will air from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. ET. You can catch plenty of Criminal Minds on Mondays as well, as episodes will air through primetime to kick off the week. The Monday marathons will run from 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. Basically, there is going to be a lot of Criminal Minds action on cable in the not-too-distant future.

There’s a Reason Why This Mindhunter Character Seems So Familiar

The crime drama Mindhunter, now on Netflix, stars Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford, a young hostage negotiator who travels around the country in the late ’70s interviewing killers to figure out what makes them tick. His colleagues doubt him, except for Bill Tench (Holt McCallany), a behavioral-science specialist based on another notable early profiler, Robert Ressler.

If Ford’s story sounds familiar, there’s a good reason. The David Fincher drama is based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside The FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by John E. Douglas and Mark Olshaker. Douglas is a former FBI Special Agent and one of the country’s foremost criminal profilers. Starting in the late ’70s, when he was still in his early 30s, he worked for the Bureau’s Behavioral Science Unit, teaching hostage negotiation and criminal psychology to FBI agents and police officers.

Criminal Minds Exclusive: There’s a Condition to Reid’s – TV Guide

The team is back in action this week on Criminal Minds, but Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) has some reservations about being back on the team.

There is a condition to his reinstatement to the BAU after being framed for murder last season. For every 100 days that Reid spends in the field, he has to take 30 off. It feels like a probation, but Prentiss (Paget Brewster) is able to explain that it’s just a temporary safety measure to make sure that Reid doesn’t freak out on duty.

If Reid was truly ready to be back on the team, would he need such a “safety valve” though? Prentiss tries to say that everyone on the team needs it, including her, but it doesn’t seem to do much to boost Reid’s confidence. Luckily, he seems to be the only one doubting whether he can handle the job. Sure, he wanted to

There’s A Startling Lack Of Unabomber In Discovery’s ‘Manhunt: Unabomber’

Where to Stream

Manhunt: Unabomber


  • Discovery

  • Amazon
  • More Options

Don’t get me wrong, I am loving Discovery’s Manhunt: Unabomber. The network’s all-new scripted anthology series is a gripping dramatization of the FBI’s hunt for the notorious serial killer known as the Unabomber. The eight-episode drama follows FBI criminal profiler Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald’s obsessive search to bring the Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, to justice. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the specifics of the case, you’ve undoubtedly seen the infamous Unabomber sketch and have a passing knowledge of the fear and mayhem this elusive murderer engendered during the mid-nineties.

The series is a cerebral cat and mouse tale that commands your full attention. My only critique of Manhunt? If you’re going to name a series after the Unabomber, you GOTTA GIVE ME MORE UNABOMBER.

Were There Too Many New Faces on the BAU in ‘Criminal Minds’ Season 12?

Season 12 was one of change for the BAU on Criminal Minds. Sure, the team has had members leave before, but not to this extent. Morgan left last season, Hotch left at the beginning of this season and not only did we get two new agents, but a new Unit Chief (though fortunately someone very familiar) as well.

Prentiss returned to the team and took over leading it. Luke Alvez was brought in from the Fugitive Task Force as the hunt for the escaped convicts continued. When Emily found room in the budget, she brought in someone she knew from the Behavioral Analysis Program, Stephen Walker. Sure, it all worked when it came to getting the job done, but the team dynamic wasn’t the same. And while change can be a good thing, there can be too much of it. That was the case here.

What happened to Madeleine McCann and what conspiracy theories are there about her disappearance?

TEN years ago, little Madeleine McCann disappeared sparking one of the largest missing person hunts in history.

The then three-year-old has never been seen since, vanishing from the holiday apartments in Portugal where she had been staying with her siblings and their parents and Kate and Gerry in May 2007.

Missing Maddie . . . police have recorded 8,685 potential sightings of missing Brit since 2007

Missing Maddie . . . Police have recorded thousands of potential sightings of missing Brit since 2007

Since the toddler’s disappearance, theories and conspiracies have been concocted – but still, the little girl remains missing.

Now, an Australian TV show has claimed to have discovered a major breakthrough in the case – while the nanny who was there the night Maddie vanished has spoken out insisting there was “no way” the parents were involved.

So what do we

Our View: Isn’t there a better way to study racial profiling? – Opinion …

San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon met recently with our editorial board, with topics ranging from traffic in the High Desert to immigration enforcement to body cameras for deputies. But it was his information on Assembly Bill 953, signed into law two years ago by Gov. Jerry Brown, that elicited the most discussion.

AB 953 was authored by Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, in response to fatal law enforcement shootings of unarmed black men. When it takes affect next year, it will require police officers and sheriff’s deputies to collect data on everyone they stop, as well as their perceived race, why they were stopped and whether or not they were arrested.

Law enforcement leaders did not like the bill in 2015 when it was introduced and appealed to Brown to veto it once it passed the state Legislature. He wouldn’t, however.
