TV picks for Jan. 6: 'Marie,' 'The Bachelor,' Robert Osborne

  • January 5, 2014 - 2:00 PM

She’s a little bit country

The Hallmark Channel may have canceled Marie Osmond’s talk show, but it’s not quite dead yet. “Marie” (9 a.m., Reelz) will air in reruns weekday mornings on the Hubbard family’s Reelz channel with an option for new episodes if all goes well. Now if only the Hubbards would finance a remake of the classic Donny & Marie film “Goin’ Coconuts.”

The dating game

“The Bachelor” (7 p.m., KSTP, Ch. 5) returns for another round of mindless flirting, with heartthrob Juan Pablo Galavis having to choose among 27 women, including a former NBA dancer, a schoolteacher, a federal prosecutor, an opera singer and a local news anchor.

The host with the most

Alec Baldwin may have lost his hosting gig at MSNBC, but the door is apparently still open at TCM, where he will grill the channel’s long-time public face in “Private Screenings: Robert Osborne” (7 p.m., TCM). It may sound like a self-congratulatory pat on the back, but Osborne has led a rich life and he’s a top-notch storyteller.
