What To Watch: 11/24/2020

One of the most polarizing movies of the year hits Netflix, and if nothing else, with Glenn Close and Amy Adams in a passionate drama, you’re bound to see some Oscar-worthy performances if nothing else–even if the source material might be problematic. Our recommendations are rounded out by love and basketball.

Hillbilly Elegy [Netflix]
Ron Howard’s new film is an adaption of J.D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy, a non-fiction book that set the conservative world all a-Twitter. Chances are Howard and his cast that includes Glenn Close and Amy Adams will find the humanity under the politics.

A Christmas Tree Grows in Colorado [Hallmark, 8p]
A woman manipulates a firefighter to get his blue-ribbon (I assume, I made that up) spruce in the town square. I assume she actually falls in love with him.

The Best of All The Smoke [Showtime, 10p]
With its stars’ unique personalities and perspectives, All The Smoke featuring ex-NBA’ers Matt Barnes & Stephen Jackson has become one of the most compelling sports podcasts out there. Tonight’s “Best Of” features interviews with Dwyane Wade, Allen Iverson, and the late Kobe Bryant.


  • Over on OWN, the primetime soap opera The Haves and the Have Nots notches its eighth season, debuting tonight.
  • She was there for you when the rain started to fall, so be there tonight too for Jennifer Aniston: More Than Friends as the underrated actress gets the Reelz treatment for her career.
  • The famed cheerleading crew for America’s Team (aka America’s Most Hated Team) has been receiving the docu-drama treatment for an astonishing 14 seasons. Tryouts for a 15th season of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team start today on CMT.
