While this space feels almost most useful as a goofy Christmas movie warehouse, two of our three recommendations neither yule nor tide.
George RR Martin’s Nightflyers [Syfy, 10p]
George RR Martin’s other show returns. Panic on the ship begins to spread. No one can be trusted and Eris takes bold measures to try to hold it all together.
Life Size 2 [Freeform, 9p]
Almost two decades later, Life-Size is back! This project has been in the works for so long that I can’t believe it’s finally airing. Can’t wait to see Tyra in all her glory. There’s no Lindsay Lohan this time, but many other familiar faces.
Dirty John [Bravo, 9p]
Debra and John, who married after “dating” for two months (WHY!!!! GIRL!!! NO!!!!!) are enjoying their new, “secret” marriage. But Debra didn’t raise a bunch of dummies, so her daughters and nephew dig up dirt proving their point that John is a Fucking Psycho. (He is, and I strongly recommend the podcast, so you too can howl at the TV!)
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- It’s endless sweetness and mistletoe, happy families and happy endings, as we’ve hit Peak Christmas TV. Pictured above is the Hallmark movie, A Majestic Christmas. Hallmark Movies, meanwhile, offers up Once Upon a Christmas Miracle. A channel called Up is showing the Harlequin-backed Christmas Catch. TV One airs something titled Merry Wishmas. We can always count on Lifetime, and tonight they’ve got A Star For Christmas.
- As if that’s not enough, we complete the treelighting season with the 2018 National Christmas Tree Lighting, televised in this case by Ovation — that is, if you can stand the Trump-iness of it all.
- If you’d prefer a different person famous for “Friends in Low Places,” Garth! Live at Notre Dame is on CBS tonight. We’re not proud … or tired!
- A country star’s daughter graced the second season of Epix spy thriller Berlin Station. A third season begins tonight.
