Tuesday TV: ‘Hillbilly Elegy,’ the Movie

Ron Howard’s adaptation of J.D. Vance’s bestseller of poverty and drug abuse in the Appalachians, “Hillbilly Elegy” (Netflix, streaming), stars an almost unrecognizable Glenn Close and Amy Adams and is available today on the streaming service. 

In the imported Argentinian film, “Notes for My Son” (Netflix, streaming) a woman with terminal cancer writes about life, death and love for her four year old son. 

In the streaming Christmas special spinoff for preschoolers from the computer animated “How to Train Your Dragon” folks is “Dragons: Rescue Riders: Huttsgalor Holiday” (Netflix, streaming). It’s 46 minutes, but it counts as a movie.

Apparently taken over by TikTok, “Tosh.0” (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.) calls it quits after 12 seasons with its final episode of making fun of people on the internet. 

a 15th season starts for “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team” (MTV, 10 p.m.), despite the pandemic (and gender enlightenment).

The Larry David / Bernie Sanders episode of “Finding Your Roots” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings), in which they find they are cousins,  is replayed. 

After the reunion for “I Love New York” Monday, here’s a new one for “Hollywood Exes: Reunited” (VH1, 8 p.m.) with Nicole Murphy, Shanna Moakler, Andrea Kelly, Mayte Garcia, Sharon Lawrence and Sheree Zampino. They are the ex-wives, respectively, of Eddie Murphy, Travis Barker, R. Kelly, Prince, Martin Lawrence, and Will Smith. It’s hosted by Jeannie Mai of “The Real.”
