FRIDAY, Jan. 26
Faith Under Fire: The Antoinette Tuff Story (8 p.m., Lifetime) Toni Braxton takes on a real-life role of heroic proportions as she stars as Antoinette Tuff, the mother who heroically averted an attack at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Georgia, saving hundreds of lives. Anoinette convinced a deranged gunman who stormed the elementary on August 20, 2013, to surrender – using only hope, compassion and prayer as her weapons. The film also stars Yaya DaCosta as 911 operator Kendra McCray and Malik Yoba as Sergeant Franklin. Antoinette Tuff’s son Derrick, who was diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, is portrayed by Shalaby Omar, a young actor with Spina Bifida. Executive produced by Toni along with the likes of T.D. Jakes, Judith Verno, Derrick Williams and Craig Baumgarten, this real-life story of hope is directed by Emmy nominee Vondie Curtis Hall.
Conan Without Borders (10 p.m., TBS) In this one-hour “Haiti” special, the late-night TV host heads to the unjustly maligned country – and lets the country have their shot at the man who insulted their homeland (we mean you, Trump). Check some of their reactions above!
SUNDAY, Jan. 28
