NBC (9-10 p.m. ET)

This mindless series tries to be a modern-day Kung Fu. Lee Van Cleef, the bad guy in those Clint Eastwood spaghetti Westerns, plays an ex-Air Force colonel who has mastered the martial arts of the Ninja, legendary Oriental warriors. Van Cleef roams the U.S. in search of his daughter. Timothy (The White Shadow) Van Patten is his apprentice.
