1) Football and “Saturday Night Live,” 7 p.m. ET and 11:29 p.m., NBC. This is the Saturday that NBC dreamed of when the shutdown began: Fifth-ranked Notre Dame hosts Florida State; then is the second of five straight new “SNL” episodes. When the show returned last week, viewers weren’t sure what to expect: Would it be muted because of President Trump’s illness? All worries were quickly doused by host Chris Rock and by the opening bit — a Trump-Biden “debate” (shown here) with Alec Baldwin and Jim Carrey. Now Bill Burr hosts; country singer Morgan Wallen was set as music guest, but was dropped when a Tik Tok video showed him maskless at a party, violating COVID protocol.
2) More sports. ABC might have the day’s best football line-up, peaking at 7:30 p.m. ET with top-ranked Clemson hosting Miami (ranked No. 7). At noon ET, North Carolina (No. 8) hosts Virgina Tech (19); at 3:30, Iowa State (24) hosts Texas Tech. CBS has a promising one, with Tennessee (14) at Georgia (3) at 3:30 p.m. ET; Fox has Texas (22) at Oklahoma at noon and Kansas State at Texas Christian at 4. There’s more on cable, including (if needed) the fifth and final games of two baseball play-off series.
3) “The Masked Singer” and “I Can See Your Voice,” 8 and 9 p.m., Fox. First is a quick rerun from last Wednesday’s “Masked Singer,” the season’s third episode. Then is a rerun of the first “I Can See Your Voice”; eyeing some lip-syncers, the panel tried to pick the real singer to do a duet with Nick Lachey.
4) “FBI: Most Wanted,” 8 p.m., CBS. In a rerun, a hacker will stop at nothing to get revenge. That starts with cyber-stalking and escalates to murder. Hana (Keisha Castle-Hughes) finds that someone from her past will help with the case … but at a price she’s not willing to pay.
5) “Do the Right Thing” (1989), 7 p.m., Showtime; “Black Panther” (2018), 8 p.m., TNT. Separated by three decades, both are key pieces of Black-cinema history. “Right Thing” drew Oscar nominations for Spike Lee’s script and Danny Aiello in support; film-critic groups in Los Angeles and Chicago named it the year’s best. “Black Panther” drew seven Oscar nominations (including best-picture), winning three. It’s a rousing action film (albeit with an overlong final battle) that made $1.35 billion worldwide.
