What’s on TV
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE 11:30 p.m. on NBC. John Mulaney had to postpone a show in Toronto because he was “drafted” to host this episode, Lorne Michaels wrote in an apology to Mulaney’s Canadian fans. (Mulaney weighed in: “I’m afraid of Lorne, so I do what he says.”) This is the comedian’s third time hosting the show. He’s joined by the musical guest David Byrne, the former frontman of Talking Heads, who just wrapped up the first run of his critically acclaimed Broadway show “American Utopia.” (For those who missed the stage run, don’t fret — Byrne will reprise the production in the fall, and Spike Lee has announced that he will direct a film version to be released later this year.)
TYLER PERRY’S YOUNG DYLAN 8:30 p.m. on Nickelodeon. Since retiring his Madea character last year, the prolific writer and director Tyler Perry has been preoccupied with several projects. The latest is this new children’s show, starring the charismatic child rapper Dylan Gilmer, who goes by Young Dylan. The aspiring hip-hop star plays himself — a cool, street-smart kid whose grandmother sends him to live with his cousins’ family, upending their conservative way of life.
SEVEN WORLDS, ONE PLANET 9 p.m. on BBC America. The first season finale of this globe-trotting nature show takes us to Africa for a close look at its wildlife, with scenes highlighting hippos in need of water and ferocious battles between giraffes.
COLOR OUT OF SPACE (2020) Rent on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes or Vudu. More than 20 years after the director Richard Stanley was fired from the set of “The Island of Dr. Moreau,” he returns to narrative filmmaking with this trippy science fiction horror. The movie, an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s short story, follows a family that has recently traded the city life for a quiet New England Farm. When the father, Nathan (Nicolas Cage), finally manages to reignite the spark missing from his marriage, a meteorite crashes into his front yard. Its crater unleashes a mysterious energy — in the form of a hypnotic, purple hue — that goes after the family in bizarre, bloody ways. Jeannette Catsoulis named the film a Critic’s Pick in her review for The New York Times, writing that “lovers of aberrant, gooey B-movies will be all in.”
PAAVO JARVI AND SOL GABETTA 2 p.m. on medici.tv. The Estonian conductor Paavo Jarvi leads Japan’s NHK Symphony Orchestra and the Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta in this live performance from Germany. The program starts with the Emily Dickinson-inspired piece “How Slow the Wind,” by the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, followed by a Schumann Cello Concerto and Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony.
IN SECRET (2014) Stream on Hulu; Rent on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu or YouTube. Elizabeth Olsen seeks passion in a loveless marriage in this romantic thriller, set in 19th-century Paris. She finds it in her husband’s friend, and it’s all downhill from there. The movie leaves Hulu Saturday.
