TV DIVAGAL TV Show to Watch Tonight: Liz & DickBy Delaina Dixon | November 25, 2012 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal has been waiting all season for Lifetime’s premiere of Liz & Dick, starring Lindsay Lohan, which airs on the network tonight!
Lindsay portrays one of her own celebrity icons, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ms. Taylor’s complicated relationship with the love of her life, Richard Burton (played by Ugly Betty alum Grant Bowler). That means there’s plenty of tears, tantrums and tirades.
I’ve just watched the teasers — the DivaGals are having a big viewing party tonight — but I can already tell this role is a struggle for Lindsay. Playing an icon means really embodying that star — Lindsay hasn’t quite down the voice of Ms. Taylor — which already makes her performance disjointed.
Still, it’s always fun to watch a fallen star try to make her comeback — so we’re rooting for Lindsay, even if her performance doesn’t quite make the grade. She definitely gets an A on her Taylor-esque looks.
Liz & Dick, world TV premiere Sunday, Nov. 25 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
