So you've decided to stay home for New Year's Eve. No big deal. I've been there. You're not feeling the parties, the fireworks, the hoopla. And you're maybe still recovering from Christmas. We're here for you. Get those pajamas ready and stay away from Ryan Seacrest. Here are 15 great TV options that don't include overblown, loud and obnoxious New Year's Eve party specials or anything related to it (all air on NYE).
3. 'Cheech and Chong's Animated Movie' (6:15 p.m., IFC)
IFC is something of a stoner's dream on Tuesday, starting with Cheech and Chong, moving on to "Half Baked" and "Trapped in the Closet Chapters 1-33," and culminating with "Up in Smoke."
4. 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' mini-marathon (7-10 p.m, Bravo)
Y'all have maybe missed a lot — the Phaedra-Apollo-Kenya Texting Love Triangle is enough drama on its own to fill a full season. Plus, the battle between Mama Joyce and Kandi rages on and Porsha deals with her sad-weird divorce. On the more positive side, there's a road trip to Savannah. What, no ridiculously lavish "Housewives" vacation this season?
"Time Enough at Last" is the classic episode featuring a book lover (Burgess Meredith) who's the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust. Syfy's "Twilight Zone" marathon has become a New Year's Eve staple, and this episode is the must-watch.
6. 'A League of Their Own' (7:30 p.m., Sundance)
I still get a little teary when Betty Spaghetti gets the bad news about her husband. P.S.: Did you know that the film was selected for preservation last year in the United States National Film Registry? Because obviously.
