1) “The Son,” 9 p.m., AMC, rerunning at 10:01. A week before the finale, here’s a potent hour with key turning points. We learn how Eli, then a young widower, left the Comanches … And we hear a story of how the old Eli (Pierce Brosnan, shown here) died. We see his granddaughter as a matriarch … and see how coldly pragmatic she was as a teen. Some scenes – the tribe with a drunken Army captain, the teen with her mother – are brilliantly written and beautifully played.
2) Big3 basketball season-opener, 8 p.m. ET, CBS. You didn’t think the men’s basketball season would actually end, did you? What was once a winter sport ended its NBA season last week … and now starts the third season of Big3. This is 3-on-3, half-court, with a 14-second shot clock, a 25-point half and some familiar names (Lamar Odom, Jason Richardson, Metta World Peace, etc). There are 12 teams, with three quick games tonight and three more at 1 p.m. Sunday.
3) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Here’s a rerun of the show Paul Rudd hosted last month, shortly after “Avengers: Endgame” (with Rudd as Ant-Man) had its zillion-dollar opening. It was his fourth time as host, this time with DJ Khaled as music guest.
4) “Toy Story” (1995) and “Toy Story 2” (1999), 7:55 and 9:55 p.m., Freeform. These two gems lead a day of animated movies. Freeform also has “Bug’s Life” at 1:40 p.m., “Mulan” at 3:45, “Finding Dory” at 5:50 and “Pocahontas” at midnight. FXX includes “Sing” at 5:30 p.m. and “Boss Baby” at 8 and 10.
5) “The Last Bridesmaid,” 9-11 p.m., Hallmark. Becca (Rachel Boston) is about to have her 10th turn as a bridesmaid, but has never found the right guy for herself. The bride, her cousin, vows to change that.
