Ch 8.1 KTUL is again on Thu. Aug. 29, 2013 preempting new episodes of “Motive” and “Rookie Blue” to show a preseason NFL football game. There are no scheduled plans to show them at all in Tulsa. They will be available on hulu.com on Fri. Aug 30, 2013. Motive is a double header with new episodes “Ruthless” and “The One Who Got Away”. The episode of “Rookie Blue” that has been preempted is “Deception”.
“Motive” is a police procedural with a twist. The killer and victim are immediately revealed and the mystery is the motive which unfolds. Last weeks episode was disappointing in which the motive was easily discernible and most of the show was filler.
“Rookie Blue” is a police drama which focuses on a group of officers who were rookies four years ago.
