TV: Reba McEntire Lifetime’s 48 HOURS about the Idaho Murders


Here’s what’s on TV tonight.

Reba McIntyre’s Hammer (8 p.m., all time)

In this new Lifetime movie, Reba McIntyre plays Kim Wheeler, an outspoken feisty lawyer who is appointed as Nevada’s 5th Circuit Judge and one of the few dissenting judges left in America.

From Lifetime: “After a sitting judge dies under suspicious circumstances, Kim finds herself on the circuit that stretches between Las Vegas and Reno, a harsh, often desolate area where anything can happen. With a hammer in hand, she lays down the law without excess of justice, which quickly earns her the nickname “The Hammer”. When the investigation into the death of a former judge heats up, Kim’s sister Chris (Melissa Peterman), who runs a local brothel, suddenly becomes a prime suspect, and Kim must work even harder to make sure justice is served.”

There is also a main role Rex LynnMcIntyre’s real-life partner as Bart Crawford, a “mysterious cowboy with unknown motives” (Lynn also co-stars with McIntyre in ABC’s Big Sky: Deadly Trails). Kei Shioma Metchi plays Vicky, “a tough-talking bailiff who is Kim’s right-hand man and trusted friend.”

Avery and Peter try to keep their romance alive by renovating an old house and juggling work, but things take a new turn when she reveals a surprise.

48 HOURS: Idaho College Murders (10 p.m., CBS)

Police linked Koberger, who was a graduate student at Washington State University (about eight miles from the Moscow killing), to DNA from a knife sheath left at the scene. The police have not yet announced a motive. 48 HOURS is said to have “inside details” of the case. It will also air on Paramount+.
