What’s on TV? –Wednesday (5/8/19) – ‘Training Day’ Worth a Ride Along


If you’re looking to relax tonight, there’s plenty to choose from on TV. There are a slew of new episodes of series as the seasons wind down to their May finales. If you haven’t been keeping up with any shows that air on Wednesday, there are plenty of movies to choose from – guilty pleasures or otherwise – including Denzel Washington‘s second Academy Award winning performance in “Training Day“, which is always worth enjoying.

“Training Day” at 9:00 p.m. ET on BET

One of the historic moments of the Academy Awards was awarding Denzel Washington Best Actor for “Training Day.” The tense, pulpy police procedural follows Washington’s Alonzo as he takes newbie Jake (Ethan Hawke) through a day in the life as an L.A.P.D. officer. Jake begins to realize Alonzo might not always have the best way of handling situations and “Training Day” is engaging every step of the way.


If you’ve already seen “Training Day,” or your interest lies elsewhere, there’s a little bit of everything for movie buffs tonight. The actions fans can choose from “I, Robot” (5:30 p.m. ET on AMC), followed by “Taken” (8:00 p.m. ET). Then, there’s also “The Expendables” (6:00 p.m. ET on BBC) with “The Untouchables” (the movie that won Sean Connery his Oscar) following at 8:30 p.m. ET. Comedy fans can choose from “Legally Blonde” (7:00 p.m. ET on POP) or “The House Bunny” (9:01 p.m. ET on Freeform). There’s a film for practically everyone tonight. But if these options haven’t piqued your interest, see what else is on TV tonight.
