1) Musicals. On the eve of the Academy Awards, here are three excellent musical films with Oscar links. “Dreamgirls” (shown here, 2006, 8 p.m., HBO) drew an Oscar for Jennifer Hudson, a nomination for Eddie Murphy and great work from Beyonce, Jamie Foxx and more … “Bohemian Rhapsody” (2018, 8 p.m., FX) has Rami Malek’s Oscar-winning work as Freddie Mercury … “Moana” (2018, 6:50, Freeform) was nominated for best animated feature and for one of its songs, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
2) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Yes, fans are disappointed that Reg-Jean Page is dropping out of “Bridgerton.” (The second season of the Netflix series will focus on other romances.) Still, they can catch him in this rerun of the Feb. 20 “SNL”; Bad Bunny is the music guest.
3) “FBI,” 8 p.m., CBS. In a rerun, a chemical plant has been robbed, with two customs agents killed. Now the team tries to infiltrate the drug-trafficking ring involved. Nestor, the FBI negotiator, volunteers to help … giving Maggie (who once worked with him undercover) fresh insight.
4) “Law & Order: Organized Crime,” 9 p.m., NBC. Here’s a quick rerun of Thursday’s episode. It’s a key anniversary that Wheatley – the business magnate (and crime boss) who is suspected of killing Stabler’s wife – shares with his ex-wife.
5) “Murdoch Mysteries,” 7 p.m. ET, Ovation. We expect certain things from this sturdy show, set in 1910 Toronto – a story that’s resolved at the end of the hour, with no big surprises. Not this time. This is a two-parter that continues with next week’s season-finale … then spills into next season, the 15th. And at the end of tonight’s fairly good hour, there’s a jolt. The story has flashbacks to an episode from 11 years ago; we won’t spoil any surprises, but the unflappable Murdoch comes quite close to reacting.
