1) “The Last Dance,” 8-10:02 p.m., ABC. After drawing praise and strong ratings on ESPN, this 10-hour documentary gets a second life, this time on the broadcast side. Over the next five Saturdays, it will show Michael Jordan (shown here) and the Chicago Bulls pursue their sixth championship in eight years. Cameras followed the team in 1997-98, profiling Jordan, Scottie Pippin, Dennis Rodman, Steve Kerr and their coach, Phil Jackson; this also has dozens of current-day interviews with rivals and others.
2) War movies, cable. Turner Classic Movies is filling Memorial Day weekend with much-loved wartime films … plus a much-hated one. Roger Ebert and Leonard Maltin both gave a rare zero-star rating to John Wayne’s “The Green Berets” (1968). Still, TCM has it at 5:30 p.m. ET … in front of “Casablanca,” which is No. 3 on the American Film Institute’s all-time list, at 8 p.m. ET. Sundance also has a mismatch – Steve Spielberg’s brilliant “Saving Private Ryan” (1998) at 5 p.m. “Green Berets” at 9.
3) “MacGyver” and “Magnum, PI,” 8 and 9 p.m., CBS. Both reruns involve kidnapping. First, Mac’s girlfriend is taken by his arch-enemy Murdoc, to force him to help find Murdoc’s son. Then a teen escaped her captors; her parents hire Magnum to find them.
4) “Scandalous: The Untold Story of the National Enquirer,” 10 p.m., CNN (barring breaking news). If you missed this terrific documentary Sunday, catch it now. It starts as giddy fun: A tabloid paper goes to extremes to deliver stories about UFO’s and Bigfoot and celebrity downfalls. Then it turns dead-serious: While slamming others, the paper buries negative stories about Bob Hope, Bill Cosby, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Donald Trump. It goes even further, with a fierce pro-Trump, anti-Hillary push.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Tentatively set is a rerun of the second at-home edition, which was a big jump forward. The first was OK, but had too many one-person bits; this has more fully-developed sketches, linking people at their homes. It also has a terrific Miley Cyrus song and a classic moment: Answering a CNN question, Dr. Anthony Fauci casually said he’d like to be played by Brad Pitt on “SNL.” So there was Pitt – his first full appearance on the show – in a great bit as Fauci.
