Oklahoma-born and bred singer/actress Reba McEntire will be a guest tonight on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which airs at 11 p.m. weekdays on ABC (KOCO-5 in Oklahoma City).
McEntire stars in the new sitcom “Malibu Country,” which airs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays on ABC. McEntire plays Reba Gallagher, a once-promising country singer who put her career on hold to raise a family. When she discovers her husband, fellow musician Bobby (Jeffrey Nordling), has been cheating on her, she opts to ignore Tammy Wynette’s advice and not stand by her man. Instead, she packs up her two teenagers (Juliette Angelo and Justin Prentice) and her feisty mama (Lily Tomlin) and moves from Nashville to Malibu and the beach house her ex used as his love nest, which also happens to be their last remaining asset. While Reba tries to revitalize her music career, her whole brood must adapt to the SoCal life.
