1) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. It was beefy-guy night, when this aired on Super Bowl eve. JJ Watt, 6-foot-5, 288, hosted; Luke Combs, 5-8, 198, sang (shown here). Watt is a pro football star – three times named defensive player of the year. Combs played football in high school, but then soared as a singer. He’s quicklty had eight songs reach No. 1 on the country chart; “Beautiful Crazy” stayed for seven weeks. Here, he offers the important musical message: “Beer Never Broke My Heart.”
2) “Biography,” 6 p.m. to 4 a.m., A&E. Here are contrasting profiles of comedians. Chris Farley lived big and died at 33 … the same age as one of his heroes, John Belushi. Jeff Dunham and Jeff Foxworthy continue to thrive. Two-hour portraits of Dunham and Farley are at 6 and 8 p.m., with a one-hour look at Foxworthy at 10. Then they repeat, starting at 11 p.m. and 1 and 3 a.m.
3) “NCIS: Los Angeles,” 8 p.m., CBS. It was 17 years ago that “JAG” hatched the “NCIS” franchise. In this rerun, we catch up on the “JAG” characters: Harm (David James Elliott) is a Navy captain who wants help catching spies on his ship. Mac (Catherine Bell) is a lieutenant colonel who links with Hetty to neutralize a missile attack in the Middle East.
4) “Last Christmas,” 8 p.m., HBO. Yes, some critics attacked this for its rampant sentimentality and its wild twist, taking the George Michael song literally. Still, it has gorgeous visuals from director Paul Feig (“A Simple Favor” and the “Ghostbusters” reboot), smart dialog (co-written by Emma Thompson, who also has a supporting role) and the appealing casting of Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. That makes it “Game of Thromes” meets “Crazy Rich Asians,” boosted by “Sense and Sensibility.”
5) More movies, cable. It’s a great movie night, propelled by the masters. Steven Spielberg has “E.T. (1982) at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Paramount and “Catch Me If You Can” (2002) at 7:30 p.m. on Showtime. Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove” (1964) is 8 p.m. ET on Turner Classic Movies and James Cameron’s “Titanic” (1997) is 12:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Paramount.
