Tater on TV: What’s on Tonight 10/1/21

Tonight we get the return of the CBS lineup tailored to old people like me who stay home and watch TV on Friday night. Here is the full lineup.


8pm – The Most Magical Story on Earth: 50 Years of Walt Disney World – Hosted by Whoopi Goldberg, a celebration of Disney World. Some of my favorite family vacations were to Disney.

10pm – 20/20


8pm – SWAT – SWAT moves from midweek to open the “shows for old people” lineup.

9pm – Magnum PI – My wife likes this one more than me, but I still enjoy it. I wish they had Rick and TC more involved in the cases in this one instead of it being all about Magnum and Higgins and their will they/won’t they relationship.

10pm – Blue Bloods – My favorite of the Friday night shows. For some reason, this is the one “old people” show my wife does not watch.


8pm – Penn & Teller: Fool Us

9pm – Dynasty


8pm – WWE Friday Night Smackdown – I’ve seen bits of this because it is on the same channel as Jeopardy. The TV is still on the channel while we watch the DVR so this is on while I wait for others to get dessert, go to the bathroom, etc. between shows. It looks really bad and overacted compared to what I remember.


8pm – Repeat of Ordinary Joe

9pm – Dateline

Various Non-Streaming Options

Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on Food Network at 9.

Selling the Big Easy on HGTV at 9 and 9:30.
