1) “Graduate Together: America Honors the Class of 2020,” 8 p.m, CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox and social media. This is the graduation ceremony we all deserve – Barack and Michelle Obama as the commencement speakers, joined by music people – Pharell Williams, H.E.R., Bad Bunny, Ben Platt and the Jonas Brothers. LeBron James will also be there. He organized this event because three million people will graduate from high school this year without a prom or a full graduation ceremony.
2) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Here’s a rerun of the first of the three at-home episodes … and a reminder of how quickly this has progressed. This first try had lots of solo bits, one person trying to be funny in front of a camera. It only clicked during “Weekend Update” and two sketches that linked several people for bits about social-distance life. The next two episodes had much more of that.
3) “Joker” (2019), 8 p.m., HBO. This film made a fortune at the box office and got 11 Oscar nominations, including best picture. It won for its music and for Juaquin Phoenix in the title role. Other movie choices include Tom Cruise’s zesty “Top Gun” (1986), at 8:30 p.m. on AMC, and Will Ferrell’s kinda-fun “Daddy’s Home 2” (2017) at 8 and 10 p.m. on FX, with the original (2015) at 6.
4) “Frankie Drake Mysteries,” 7 p.m. ET, Ovation. Here’s an admirable attempt to tell a sexual-abuse story set in 1920s Toronto. Alas, this show’s easy-solutions formula doesn’t work for a serious subject. But the 8 p.m. movie that follows is surprisngly good. Beautifully directed by Simon Wincer, “Quigley Down Under” (1990) has Tom Selleck as an American cowboy in Australia.
5) Basketball, 9 p.m., ABC. Seriously, it’s come to this: In prime time on one of the big networks, we’re supposed to watch a 2016 game with the Utah Jazz at the Los Angeles Lakers. There are many things wrong with this, including the fact that Los Angeles has no lakes and Utah has little jazz.
