The Rockford Files

Weeknights at 1 AM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
Easy-going ex-con-turned-private-investigator Jim Rockford (James Garner) generally avoids fights, packing heat and never takes "open cases." Rockford isn't lazy or cowardly; he simply favors caution over recklessness and bravado. Just barely scrapping by, using a dilapidated mobile home as his home and office, Rockford earns his bread and butter solving cold cases, missing persons investigations and low-budget insurance scams against a sunny Los Angeles backdrop.
