‘Walker’

-

After spending 15 seasons hunting demons on “Supernatur­al,” Jared Padalecki assumes a very different kind of role. He stars as Cordell Walker, a widower, father and Lone Star lawman with his own moral code. Sound familiar? Kung fu tough guy Chuck Norris played the character in “Walker, Texas Ranger,” which, amazingly, ran for eight seasons (1993-2001). Producers say the reboot will be more of a family drama than the turbocharg­ed original. Let’s hope it will be less ridiculous, as well. (Premieres at 8 p.m. today, The CW)
