1) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. The first time Lizzo (shown here) did the show, “SNL” had its best ratings in years. Of course, it helped that Eddie Murphy was making his long-awaited turn as host. Now, two-plus years later, she’s back and fully in charge; she’ll double as host and music guest.
2) “Would I Lie to You?” 8:30 p.m., CW. The notion is simple: A panelist reads a card he’s never seen; it might not be true, but he must claim it is and answer questions. Did Rachel Feinstein have a cockatoo that kept saying “Whatcha doin’?” Did a stranger save her marriage with a recipe? Did Shalewa Sharp trade porn for tattoos? Like last week’s series-opener, this is profoundly pointless, yet fun. The regulars – Matt Walsh and “Daily Show” alumni Aasif Mandvi and Sabrina Jalees – are clever.
3) Sports overload. Isn’t it supposed to be baseball season now? ABC has hockey (Minnesota at St. Louis) at 3 p.m. and the basketball playoffs (Denver at Golden State) at 8:30. ESPN has more playoff basketball. And somehow, it’s football season again. The new USFL has a 7:30 p.m. game (New Jersey at Birmingham) simultaneously on Fox, NBC and Peacock.
4) “NCIS: Los Angeles,” 8 p.m., CBS. Two strong forces collide, when Sam (LL Cool J) and retired Admiral Kilbride (Gerald McRaney) disagree. A search for an arms dealer leads to a colonel who is Kilbride’s friend. Also, Kensi and Fatima go undercover at a rehab facility, trying to question the dealer’s girlfriend.
5) Movies. If your Easter weekend requires bunnies, you can turn to FX; “Peter Rabbit” (2018) – not the Easter Bunny, but family-friendly – is at 6 p.m. And if you want religious films, turn to UpTV. It has a marathon, including the 2006 mini-season version of “The Ten Commandments,” from 1-5 p.m. ET. UpTV will continue its marathon Sunday, when Turner Classic Movies will also have biblical epics.
