1) “American Sniper” (2014) or “Richard Jewell” (2019), 8 p.m., Syfy or HBO. After spending decades in fiction, Clint Eastwood has directed five straight films based on true stories. That started with the terrific “Sniper,” which drew six Oscar nominations, included best actor (Bradley Cooper, shown here) and best picture. It made $547 million worldwide – which put it more than $500 million ahead of “Jewell,” the story of the security guard who found bombs near the 1996 Olympics.
2) Sports overload, everywhere. After months of sports void, any live event – even one without fans – will do well. So CBS has golf, with the PGA from 4-10 p.m. ET … Fox has boxing, with Jamal James and Thomas Dulorme going for the interim welterweight title at 8 … Fox Sports1 has baseball, with the Tigers and Pirates at 4:05 … and basketball sprawls across two networks – 1, 3:30 and 6 p.m. ET on TNT, then the league-leading Bucks and the Mavericks at 8:30 on ESPN.
3) “The Good Doctor,” 10 p.m., ABC. Shaun (Freddie Highmore) and Claire meet someone who has a rare form of dwarfism. Also in this rerun, the other doctors treat a boy who had previously lost both arms in a farm accident.
4) “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (2005), 7:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., IFC. Before watching Highmore being a good doctor, catch him as a great kid who wins a visit to a candy factory. He was 13 when this film came out; it’s a quirky delight, with great work from director Tim Burton, composer Danny Elfman and star Johnny Depp. “Charlie” is a reboot of “Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Family” (1971), a fun film that airs at 5 and 10 p.m.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Daniel Craig – not always thought of as a funny guy, despite his work in the clever “Knives Out” – hosts this rerun. He hosted one other time, eight years earlier; The Weeknd has his third official time as music guest.
