When a Made For TV Movie Wasn't Originally Made For TV
American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere.
Grace of Monaco on Lifetime at 9:00pm ET. Original telefilm. This film stars Nicole Kidman, Parker Posey, and Tim Roth and opened at Cannes last year. The fact that it managed to end up on Lifetime rather than in the theater should tell you a lot about it. If you need confirmation that it’s terrible, though, just type the name into Google and the internet will be more than happy to oblige.
Texas Rising on History Channel at 9:00pm ET. Mini-series premiere. Remember the Alamo? This is what happened afterwards.
Turn on AMC at 10:00pm ET.
The Island on NBC at 10:01pm ET. Series premiere. This is sort of a reality survival series, except there’s no competitive factor. The “twist” is that the 14 men are left alone without even a camera crew, they’re filming the series themselves. Sounds like the lamest bachelor party ever.
Genevieve Burgess thinks that there may be a good movie to be made about Princess Grace’s life, but this apparently isn’t it. Or even remotely historically accurate.
