TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: “Saturday Night
Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC.
Few people do double duty on “SNL,”
hosting and being musical guest on the same night.
Mick Jagger did that last May; other
have ranged from Garth Brooks to Britney Spears. Still, many singers
– from Justin Timberlake to Miley Cyrus – have had separate music
Now it's Bruno Mars' turn to do both.
He was music guest once, with Jane Lynch (who towers over him by
seven inches) as host; tonight, he does it all.
TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE II: “Pride &
Prejudice” (2005), 8 p.m. E.
Jane Austen's novel focused on
Elizabeth Bennet – bright, beautiful and broke, in need of a
husband with money. It could have been a talky costume drama, but
director Joseph Wright showed that few words are needed, when you
have an expressive star (Keira Knightley) and a flowing camera.
And if you need something macho? Prime
time has four football games, plus “The Road Warrior” (1981) and
“”Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” (1985) at 7:30 and 9:30 p.m. on
the G4 network.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “The Girl,”
9 p.m., HBO.
Back in 1963, Alfred Hitchcock was
already 64 and famous. He had his own TV show and five Academy Award
nominations, spread over 20 years.
Tippi Hedren was 33 and unknown, a
model from New Ulm, Minn. When she starred in his “The Birds” and
“Marnie,” two strong forces collided.
That story bears no particular
importance, but it's still fascinating to see replayed. Sienna Miller
portrays a complex Hedren, with Toby Jones as an exaggerated version
Other choices include:
– “Revolution,” 8 p.m., NBC.
Here's a rerun of Monday's episode, which added Kim Raver (Teddy on
“Grey's Anatomy”) in a recurring role. Charlie and Miles have
optimism, but their enemy Captain Neville has a steam engine.
– “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,”
8 p.m., CBS. This rerun has a medical helicopter hijacked, with Brody
(Elisabeth Harnois) on board.
– “Person of Interest.” 9 p.m.,
CBS. A rerun offers hints about Reese's past. As he works undercover
for an armored-truck company, he reflects on the final case that led
to him leave the CIA.
– “Chicago Fire,” 9 p.m., NBC.
After a so-so opener, “Fire” improved with this second episode.
We get some feeling for the stoic Kelly Severide, in a rescue story
that starts and ends this hour.
– “I Married Who?,” 9 p.m.,
Hallmark; repeats at 11. Strange things seem to happen at bachelor
and bachelorette parties on TV. The clean-living Jordan (Kellie
Martin) accidentally gets drunk and (accidentally again) gets married
to a TV star. It's a light, loopy story, but Martin makes it work.
– Law & Order: Special Victims
Unit, 10 p.m., NBC. For all of its 10 seasons, Alexandra Eames
(Kathryn Erbe) was one of the key cops on “Law & Order:
Criminal Intent.” Now she's in this show, in a rerun of Wednesday's
episode. She's a lieutenant now, blocking a sex-trafficking
