What To Watch: 03/05/2022

Television has worn itself out and is mostly taking a break from new material today, but there are two old Saturday faithfuls: a new SNL and a new Lifetime movie, and there’s a Screen Scholar editor there for both.

JASON’S PICK:
Saturday Night Live [NBC, 11:30p]
Oscar Isaac feels like one of those sneakily good hosts–like Christoph Waltz or Regina King–a host who whose subtle acting chops will elevate the material as long as they are willing to get into the roles the writers bring them. 

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Stolen by Their Father [Lifetime, 8p]
Based on Lizbeth Meredith’s memoir, a mother finds her abusive ex-husband has kidnapped her daughters for a non-custodial visit and taken them to Greece! Will he vanish in Europe? Will they come home? Have we all seen Not Without My Daughter?
