1) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. After pausing for a rerun, “SNL” has its fourth new episode in five weeks. The opener was disappointing, but the next two have been fairly good. Here’s the second straight new one to have the host double as music guest. On Oct. 15, it was Megan Thee Stallion; now Jack Harlow (shown here), 24, has his first turn as host and second as music guest.
2) “Quantum Leap,” 8 p.m., NBC. Most of us dislike being shoved into a ring to fight a boxing champion – especially if we don’t know who we are or why we’re here. That’s what happens to Ben in this rerun from Oct. 3; he’s inside a boxer’s body in 1977 Las Vegas.
3) “An Amish Sin,” 8 p.m., Lifetime, rerunning at 10:03 and midnight. Lifetime likes Amish stories – as indicated by the movies rerunning at 2,4 and 6 p.m. This one takes on a serious subject that, we’re told, recurs in real life: An Amish girl is shunned after reporting sexual abuse. It’s an adequate film, with the talented Kellie Martin in a small role as a devout mom.
4) “Halloween” (1978), 8 p.m., AMC. On a tiny budget, director John Carpenter crafted an excellent film. He got great visuals, a spare-and-perfect piano score and fine work from newcomers, including Jamie Lee Curtis. She’s also in a 20th-anniversary sequel at 10. For a lighter Halloween weekend, catch “Hotel Transylvania” (2012), at 7:20 p.m. on Freeform, or Eddie Murphy’s “Haunted Mansion” (2003), at 8 p.m. on Disney Channel.
5) ALSO: On a typically crowded football day, there are two other 8 p.m. ET sports choices. Fox has baseball, with the Astros hosting the Phillies in the second game of the best-of-seven World Series. CBS has the first primetime broadcast of the National Women’s Soccer League; it’s the championship game, with Portland (10 wins, three losses, nine ties) and Kansas City (10-6-6).
