Friday TV: Hollywood Walk of Fame Honors

HollywoodWalkOfFameIf you think Sunday’s Golden Globes are a questionable award, how about The Hollywood Walk of Fame Honors (CW, 9 p.m.), which collects the people who have been given stars along Hollywood Boulevard and its nearby streets this past year.

They close down the streets for individual ceremonies, but they’ve apparently collected all of the 2018 class for this special. Among the recipients: Jennifer Garner, Dwayne The Rock Johnson, Tracy Morgan, N ‘Sync, Zoe Saldana, Gillian Anderson, Mary J. Blige, Jack Black, Mark Hamill, Cedric the Entertainer, Simon Cowell, Weird Al Yankovic, Eric McCormack, Carrie Underwood and, uh, Minnie Mouse.

Dwayne the Rock Johnson coincidentally is also part of a bit on the new standup special “Ron Funches: Giggle Fit” (Comedy Central, 11 p.m.)

A Town Hall with Nancy Pelosi (MSNBC, 10 p.m.) has the new Speaker of the House talking with Joy Reid and assorted Americans at a town hall style meeting.

Later comes the 1971 cult horror movie “Sometimes Aunt Martha Does Dreadful Things” (2:15 a.m.), written, produced and directed by Thomas Casey, paired with Jim Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise” (4 a.m.).

Earlier, it’s all Westerns from the 1970s with “The Ballad of Cable Hogue” (7:30 a.m.), “There Was a Crooked Man” (9:45 a.m.), “Catlow” (noon), “The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean” (2 p.m.), “The Train Robbers” (4:15 p.m.) and one of my favorites from the era, “Hearts of the West” (6 p.m.).
