Wuthering High School (8 p.m., Lifetime) – Lifetime calls this “a modern retelling of Emily Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights.’” It’s about a teenager named Cathy (Paloma Kwiatkowski) who struggles to fit in at her wealthy Malibu high school, until her father (James Caan) brings home a young man (Andrew Jacobs), the son of a long-time employee who was suddenly deported. Heath and Cathy fall in love, but it’s a destructive relationship. Will Cathy cave to pressure to dump Heath? Will this end in tragedy?!?!?
