Death of a Cheerleader (8 p.m., Lifetime) - In this Lifetime original movie, a shy high school outsider aspires to be beautiful, popular and perfect. She tries to become friends with the rich and pretty leader of the school’s most prestigious clique, but when she is rejected, it fuels a jealous rage that leads to murder. This movie is a remake of the 1994 cult-classic with Kellie Martin and Tori Spelling (usually as “A Friend To Die For”) and inspired by Randall Sullivan’s Rolling Stone article about the real-life murder of a popular, affluent and beautiful Northern California high school cheerleader at the hand of a classmate. It stars Aubrey Peeples and Sarah Dugdale (you’ll see Kellie Martin back as an FBI agent).
