TV Watch List: Monday, May 23
‘Too Big to Fail’
MOVIE. Based on New York Times reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin’s bestseller, “Too Big to Fail” revisits the relationship between the U.S. government and Wall Street during the financial crisis of 2008. At least the docudrama cast the likes of William Hurt (playing Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulson), Paul Giamatti (Ben Bernanke), Ed Asner (Warren Buffett) and Billy Crudup (Timothy Geithner) to soften the blow the second time around.
Premiere, 9 p.m., HBO
‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’
TALK. Part one of the feel-good, star-studded “Surprise Oprah! A Farewell Spectacular,” taped at a packed United Center in Chicago last week, kicks off the final week of sharing our afternoons with the talk-show queen.
4 p.m., ABC
REALITY. Ashley Hebert, a Brad Womack reject (there are just so damn many of them!), tries to find TV love again.
Season premiere, 9 p.m., ABC
