Killing Daddy (8pm, Lifetime) - I’m glad Lifetime showed some restraint and didn’t air this Father’s Day weekend… In this movie, a young woman ( Elizabeth Gillies) who blames her mother’s suicide years earlier on her dad ( William Moses), returns home to seek revenge against her family when her dad suffers a stroke. But her plans are threatened when old secrets are revealed. Also stars Cynthia Stevenson.

My Cat From Hell (8pm, Animal Planet) - It’s a story as old as time: A man says his girlfriend’s cat became more aggressive after he moved in with her. Also, a man’s cat is peeing all over his at-home music studio, but he refuses to pay to have the cat fixed. So yeah, he kinda deserves the pee.

BET Awards (8pm, BET) - If you missed this earlier in the week (argh, too many DVR conflicts!!), record this repeat. Host Chris Rock was on fire.

Hallmark Christmas Movies (Hallmark Channel) - Hallmark is doing some strange Christmas movie marathon in the middle of July. I can’t explain it, but if you’re into those, check it out. There are Christmas movies pretty much every day through July 13. Full schedule here: hallmarkchannel.com.
