No Boundaries, formerly of The WB, returns on OLN next Monday.
No Boundaries is returning to TV next Monday night on the Outdoor Life Network. The reality TV show “[follows] a group of 15 participants as they brave the elements on a trek across some of North America’s most rugged terrain” for a chance to win $100,000 and an Explorer from show sponsor Ford (its slogan is the show’s title). OLN, which is available on some cable systems and via satellite, will air the episodes every Monday at 8 p.m. ET starting Sept. 30. After airing a few episodes last March in varying time slots around the country, The WB cancelled the show because of its low ratings.
