1) “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962), 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. Here’s a sweeping adventure, with deep characters and the true story of an Englishman who led Arab revolutionaries. The film won seven Oscars, including best picture and director (David Lean).It also drew nominations for Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif (they’re shown here) and for the script, written by Robert Bolt and Michael Wilson — who was then anonymous, because of blacklisting. The American Film Institute puts it at No. 7 on its all-time list.
2) Football, 4:30 and 8 p.m.ET , ABC and ESPN. On the final weekend of the season, today’s games have two teams with 11-5 records, each jockeying to improve their spots in the play-offs. First, the Chiefs are at the Broncos (7-9); then the Cowboys are at the Eagles (9-7 and also in the play-offs).
3) “Carole King and James Taylor: Just Call Out My Name,” 9 p.m. ET, CNN, rerunning at 1 a.m. Here’s a second chance to see a film filled with warm music and rich emotion. At the core is footage of the 2010 concert tour by King and Taylor; skillfully woven in are brief flashbacks and comments by both singers – and by others who go back to near the start of their careers.
4) “That’s My Jam” (NBC) and “Joe Millionaire” (Fox), 8 p.m. Both networks rerun their new reality shows. NBC has one episode of a music-oriented game, produced and hosted by Jimmy Fallon. Fox has two dating episodes; women know that one guy is rich and one isn’t, but don’t know who’s who.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Last week, the show made a late switch: On the night after Betty White died at 99, it pulled the scheduled rerun (Kieran Culkin hosting) and replaced it with the popular one White hosted 11 years ago. Tonight, barring another change, it reruns the episode hosted by Jonathan Taylor, an Emmy-nominee for “Lovecraft Country”; Taylor Swift is the music guest.
