1) “Coastal Elites,” 8-9:30 p.m., HBO, rerunning at 11:20. In the right hands, a pandemic can seem fun. Paul Rudnick (“Sister Act,” “Addams Family Values”) wrote monologues about social-distanced live; five gifted actors then did them in a social-distance way. Kaitlyn Dever plays an idealistic youmg nurse from Wyoming; Bette Midler plays an angry old New Yorker. Dan Levy plays a neurotic actor, Issa Raye plays a rich kid and Sarah Paulson (shown here) plays the star of the internet’s “Mindful Meditations.”
2) Football, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. ET, ABC. After a modest start last week, we have the first full (well, semi-full) Saturday of the college season. ABC has Georgia Tech and Florida State first, then top-rated Clemson at Wake Forest. Fox has Arkansas State at Kansas State at noon and NBC has Notre Dame hosting Duke at 2:30 ET. There’s more on cable, including one game (Louisiana at Iowa State at noon) on ESPN and three (noon, 3:30 and 7:30) on ESPN2, plus two (noon and 10 p.m.) on Fox Sports1.
3) More sports. The play-offs continue for hockey (Golden Knights and Stars, 8 p.m. ET, NBC), basketball (Rockets-Lakers, 9 p.m., ESPN) and NASCAR (7:30 p.m., NBC Sports Network). And at 8:07, Fox has baseball; varying by region, it’s A’s-Rangers, Astros-Dodgers or Indians-Twins.
4) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. This rerun has Jennifer Lopez’s third time as host, but the first that she didn’t double as music guest. (That job went to DaBaby.) She had bigger music duties ahead: Two months later, she did her high-octane Super Bowl halftime show.
5) Movies, cable. Everyone wants us to see them in bunches. E has the “Back to the Future” films at 6, 9 and 11:40 p.m. … FX has the “Deadpool” ones at 5:30 and 8 … Freeform has “Finding Nemo” at 4:50 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. And Showtime has Jack Ryan played by three actors – Alec Baldwin in “The Hunt For Red October” at 6:45 p.m., Harrison Ford in “Clear ad Present Danger” at 9 and Ben Affleck in “The Sum of All Fears” at 11:30.
