At 7 p.m., Sissy Spacek stars in Trading Mom as a single mother whose three children are unhappy with her working. They use a magic spell to make her disappear and set about choosing a new one. A mother (Barbara Harris) and teenage daughter (Jodie Foster) are granted their wish to switch roles in Freaky Friday (8:30 p.m.). For the family.
