TV Watch List: Thursday, December 26
Metro’s Thursday night TV breakdown.
MOVIE. Julia Roberts finally getting to shop at that snooty Rodeo Drive store and rubbing it in the salesladies’ snooty faces might be one of the most deliciously redemptive scenes in cinema history. It’s so good.
8 p.m., LIFE
MOVIE. Just when we thought “Pretty Woman” was the best Julia Roberts movie on TV tonight… This classic about a group of Southern women and a beauty parlour is worth watching for the all-star cast alone — Shirley MacLaine, Sally Field and, yeah, Julia Roberts.
7:30 p.m., OXYGN
MOVIE. Remember when Josh Hartnett was a thing? What’s he up to now? Anyway, this late ‘90s take on “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” epitomizes the greatness of ‘90s teen movies: hot young stars (Hartnett, Jordana Brewster), schlocky frights and snarky dialogue. Also, Elijah Wood is in this. But seriously, where is Josh Hartnett right now?
7 p.m., SYFY
‘Hoarding: Buried Alive’
REALITY. TLC checks back in with three previously profiled hoarders to see if their lives are any better now and if they managed to get rid of any of their crap — if they can find them under all the old newspapers and creepy dolls, that is.
10 p.m., DFH
