1) “Envy,” 8-10 p.m., Lifetime. Serayah (shown here) – who made an impressive TV debut in “Empire” (as Tiana, Hakeem’s es-wife) gets the title role, sort of. Learning she has a prosperous half-sister, she suddenly wants it all. This is the second faith-based film produced by Bishop TD Jakes, based on novels about the seven deadly sins. “Lust” was last week; production on “Greed” was delayed by the pandemic. The others – including, alas, sloth and gluttony – may take a while.
2) “NCIS: Los Angeles” and “NCIS: New Orleans,” 8 and 9 p.m., CBS. These shows will be bumped Sunday by country-music awards, so we might as well catch tonight’s reruns. First, Sam is in danger when an informant tries to run him down and kill him. Then – in a story that seems current, five months aftrer it aired – a victim was about to be a witness, accusing police of excessive force.
3) Sports rush, everywhere. ABC has staked out Saturdays for pro basketball; tonight, the Celtics host the Warriors at 8:30 p.m. ET, with pre-game at 8. Fox counters with boxing (Tony Harrison and Bryant Perrella) at 8 ET. Fox Sports1 has preliminary bouts at 7, surrounded by baseball – White Sox and Red Sox at 4 p.m., Twins and Angels at 9. Also (next item), fans might try the Andre the Giant documentary.
4) “Andre the Giant” (2018), 9 p.m. and 1:03 a.m., A&E. When Andre Roussimoff – a French farm hand and factory worker – moved to Paris, people noticed. He was allegedly 7-foot-4, 520 pounds. A promoter had him wrestling worldwide; the WWF dubbed him Andre the Giant. In 1987, he lost to Hulk Hogan before 93,173 fans … plus millions via theaters and pay-per-view. He died at 46 in 1993, but is recalled fondly in the “Young Rock” series and in a book about his “Princess Bride” movie.
5) ALSO: It’s an all-rerun night on NBC, with the “Law & Order” shows at 8 and 9 p.m. and “Saturday Night Live” at 10 and 11:20.Movies range from the second and third “Hotel Transylvania” cartoons (5:35 and 7:40 p.m., Freeform) to the great “Godfather” (7 p.m., Showtime). And BBC America, which will have Earth Day specials Thursday, also has natural pleasures today: “Africa” reruns from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m., interrupted at 8 p.m. by a new “One Wild Day,” viewing 24 hours in the desert.
