Hollywood What to Watch Week of January 30, 2022: Sweet Magnolias, Pam & Tommy, and the Winter Olympics Theviraltime

Welcome to our new and more in-depth what to watch guide! Our beloved entertainment editor, Chris Rosa, who used to write this column, is headed off to a new opportunity, but I look forward to carrying on the tradition of helping you decide what to watch in this ever-crowded entertainment landscape. 

In addition to being obsessed with all things TV as Glamour‘s West Coast editor, I’m also a member of the Television Critics Association (the organization that brings you the TCAs twice a year), the Critics Choice Association (the Critics Choice Awards will air this March), an associate member of the Television Academy (the Emmys), and the Screen Actors Guild (the awards will air Sunday, February 27 on TNT/TBS). Needless to say, I’m quite passionate about the industry and finding the best of the best, whether it’s the next addictive reality show, the TV series worth a second look, or the movie you need to see. 

So with that said, let’s jump right in to what to watch for the week of Sunday, January 30 as we head into February. (Hello, Winter Olympics and Sweet Magnolias!)

Monday, January 31

Celebrating Betty White: America’s Golden Girl (NBC): There’s been a lot of Betty White tributes since the beloved Emmy-winner passed away nearly a month ago, but given that NBC was the home of The Golden Girls from 1985-1992, expect to see plenty of personal touches in this hour-long special. (NBC also hosted Betty’s 90th birthday special back in 2012.) Friends, fellow colleagues, and admirers of Betty’s—including President Joe Biden, Cher, Tina Fey, Goldie Hawn, Jean Smart, Drew Barrymore, and more will pay tribute to the comedy legend, and hopefully, some of her beloved furry friends too. 10 P.M./9 P.M. ET/CT on NBC and available to stream the next day on Peacock

NBCUniversal

The Bachelor (ABC): It’s worth tuning in to see if resident mean girl Shanae goes home, so we can all move on to more civilized and kinder conversations that don’t involve shrimp. 8 P.M./7 P.M. ET/CT on ABC and available to stream the next day on Hulu

Tuesday, February 1

The Real Dirty Dancing (FOX): No, this is not a documentary on the making of the 1987 hit classic, Dirty Dancing (though I sure would love one), but it might come close. The newest celebrity dance competition features the likes of Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron, Brie Bella, Corbin Bleu, Cat Cora, Howie Dorough, Antonio Gates, Anjelah Johsnon-Reyes, and Loni Love reliving the movie’s most memorable dance moments, so they can—according to FOX—become the next Johnny or Baby. I don’t know if that’s setting the bar too high or low, but I can’t wait to watch them try. Best of all, the competition will take place at Virginia’s Mountain Lake Lodge, which was the actual location that stood in for Kellermans in the film. Hosted by Stephen “tWitch” Boss and airing every Tuesday night throughout the month of February. 9 P.M./8 P.M. ET/CT on FOX

The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo): Glamour deputy editor and resident Bravo expert Anna Moeslein says this season of the RHONJ (the 12th!) is rumored to be a standout, and she’s never steered me wrong. Plus, Teresa Giudice gave us her family favorite tagliatelle pasta recipe, so if there was ever a time to make an Italian dinner on a cold night, this is it. 8 P.M. ET/7 P.M. CT on Bravo

They/Them/Us (available on iTunes): The contemporary family comedy tells the story of Charlie (Joey Slotnick) and Lisa (Amy Hargreaves), two divorced parents in their 40s who are a crossroads in their life with four teenagers between them. Lisa and Charlie meet on a dating site, fall in love, and as many couples have a tendency to do, move in too quickly for their own good. Per Glamour creative director Nathalie Kirsheh, who has seen the film, “It’s a great story that feels totally relatable for so many, and I truly enjoyed it, so I’m delighted to spread the word.” Available on iTunes.

Pam & Tommy (Hulu): This limited series should have been called Pam & Tommy & the Animatronic Penis because that’s what you’re going to be taking about once you start watching this addictive re-telling of how a stolen sex tape launched Anderson and Lee’s private lives into a cultural obsession. But talking body parts aside, you won’t be able to take your eyes off of the stunning transformations of Lily James as Pamela Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Tommy Lee. (Stan has no piercings or tattoos IRL, and we still can’t get over the brilliant job the hair and makeup team did with James as Anderson.) Seth Rogen is perfect as the construction worker that discovers the infamous sex tape, and the whole thing is just so bananas, you have to see it for yourself. Three episodes will be released today with one episode a week for the next five weeks on Hulu.

Murderville (Netflix): We can’t say murder and comedy really go together, but Will Arnett would beg to differ. In Murderville, Arnett plays homicide division senior detective Terry Seattle, where every day means a new murder case and a new celebrity guest star as his partner. But the twist is that each episode’s guest star doesn’t get a script so they have no idea what is going to happen and have to improvise their way through each case. (Why didn’t anyone think of this sooner?) And just who are those celebrities? I’m glad you asked. Arnett’s charm and talent got the likes of Conan O’Brien, Annie Murphy, Ken Jeong, Kumail Nanjiani, Marshawn Lynch, and THE Sharon Stone to play along. This we can’t wait to see, especially once you see the trailer, below. All six episodes streaming at once.

Sweet Magnolias (Netflix): The much-anticipated second season is finally here (check out this great recap from season one if you need a refresher), so break out the margaritas (or your beverage of choice) and order in from your favorite restaurant because you’re going to want to spend all night binging as many episodes as possible. “This is a season with twists and turns, because life is full of twists and turns,” executive producer and showrunner Sheryl Anderson tells Glamour. “Just when you think you have something figured out—when you’re sure you know what will happen next—things change and surprise you. We wanted to capture that feeling. But also emphasize that one of the beauties of friends like the people in Serenity is they will ride out the rough road with you and celebrate the smooth roads. We hope the surprises delight and move everyone.” And come back to Glamour on Tuesday, February 8 because Anderson will break down the season finale and answer your burning questions about season three (because Netflix, if you’re listening, there HAS to be a season three). All 10 episodes available.

Suspicion (Apple TV+): Big Bang Theory fans will want to catch Kunal Nayyar in his first big role since the hit sitcom signed off in May 2019. Nayyar plays Aadesh Chopra in the addictive thriller—also starring Uma Thurman in the lead role—which will air its first two episodes tonight, followed by one new episode each Friday through March 18. The premise: When the son of Thurman’s character, a successful businesswoman, is kidnapped from a New York City hotel, four British citizens immediately come under suspicion (hence the title). Per Apple TV+, “As they find themselves in a trans-Atlantic cat and mouse race to elude the FBI and prove their innocence, it becomes apparent that not everyone can be trusted. Who is really behind the abduction, and who is only guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time?” Noah Emmerich, Georgina Campbell, Elves Gabel, Elizabeth Henstridge, Tom Rhys-Harries, Angel Coulby and Lydia West also star. Two episodes premiere on 2/4, followed by one a week.

Winter Olympics: Beijing 2022 (NBC, Peacock): Even though the Summer Games in Toyko are still fresh in our mind, it’s time to move on to our favorite cold winter sports as the best in figure skating, skiing, snowboarding, bobsled and more look to medal in Beijing. COVID is still looming large over the games, as well as a diplomatic boycott, but there will be no shortage of heartwarming and courageous stories from the athletes who have dedicated their lives to reach this moment. NBC has your complete guide to the athletes and competitions, and bookmark Glamour‘s Winter Olympics page for the latest on the stories we can’t stop talking about. The opening ceremony will be televised live on Feb. 4, and then again during primetime on NBC and Peacock. However, curling, freestyle skiing and ice hockey all begin in the days leading up to the opening ceremony, with curling starting on February 2. Check out the full schedule here.

Book of Love (Amazon Prime Video): If you’ve finished Sweet Magnolias and are looking for more soapy romance/drama, check out Book of Love featuring Sam Claflin as a young, uptight English writer. His latest novel isn’t exactly a best-seller, which is why it’s all the more surprising that it’s a hit in Mexico. But it turns out it’s because his translator, Maria (Verónica Echegui), has rewritten his book as an erotic novel. You can see where this is going, but does it really matter? Sounds like a love match to us. Streaming.

Saturday, February 5

The Wedding Veil (Hallmark Channel): It’s Loveuary at the Hallmark Channel, so catch up on The Wedding Veil, the first of three films in which longtime college friends (Lacey Chabert, Autumn Reeser, and Alison Sweeney) discover a mysterious, antique veil fabled to unite its bearer with her true love, before next weekend’s The Wedding Veil: Unveiled. 8 P.M./7 P.M. ET/CT
