If you're sitting out on New Year's Eve festivities this year and instead celebrating with your couch and a fresh set of cozy holiday jammies, then basic cable has got your back. Lifetime's New Year's Eve movie line-up starts off with some zany mid-aughts comedies, but quickly transitions to tear-jerkers during primetime, so if what you need is peak catharsis this New Year's Eve, it may be just what you're looking for.
From sad dog movies to teen cult faves, Lifetime is airing some of 2000's best nostalgia flicks to get you through the midnight countdown without the effort of having to get ready to go out. Alternatively, you could invite everyone over for a sweatpants-mandatory slumber party and party like its 2006, minus the scratched DVDs and probably with some higher quality takeout. (Although no judgement if bad pizza is extremely your vibe this New Year's Eve.) So hunker down with as many tissues as you can find — this is not the night to test out those under-eye patches you've been meaning to try — and get ready to wring every last emotion out of 2018. Here's everything airing from 8 a.m. through midnight this New Year's Eve on Lifetime.
