SATURDAY, AUG. 31
6 am – 6 am Sunday Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Cloo) | We’d never let you down by not including a L&O marathon. To top it off, there’s two more below! It’s like the world’s most obvious game of Where’s Waldo… with corpses./>

8 am – 6 pm The Game (BET) | It’s survived two networks and is going on its seventh season. This show has game.

11 am – 3 pm Boy Meets World (MTV2) | Confession: This TVLine reporter’s new Saturday morning ritual is watching reruns of the cult fave, and honestly, they hold up better than some currently airing shows.
