Saturday TV: Any Remaining ‘Doubt’

DoubtKatherine Heigl’s legal drama “Doubt” (CBS, 8 p.m.) was the biggest miss of the TV season — pulled from the schedule after just two showings in February. Now it’s back, to burn off the other episodes shot in the series that also starred Laverne Cox, Dule Hill and Steven Pasquale.

In the 90-minute season finale of “Doctor Who” (BBC America, 8:30 p.m.), which is also the farewell to Peter Capaldi in the role (at least until the christmas episode), the doctor makes his stand against an army of Cybermen. Perhaps more importantly, it’s the last from Stephen Moffatt, who revived the series so successfully.

Sports dominate network TV with NASCAR’s Coke Zero 400 (NBC, 7 p.m.) and, in baseball, Washington at St. Louis (Fox, 7 p.m.). Otherwise, “Battle of the Network Stars” (ABC, 8 p.m.) gets a same week replay.

Mrs. S and Sarah team up on “Orphan Black” (BBC America, 10 p.m.).

An online dating episode turns deadly on “20/20: In an Instant” (ABC, 9 p.m.).

The Culper Ring tries another tack on “Turn: Washington’s Spies” (AMC, 9 p.m.).

The battleground for two cats on “My Cat from Hell” (Animal Planet, 8 p.m.) is the litterbox.

An orphaned lion cub is groomed to become a star on “Raised Human” (Animal Planet, 9 p.m.).

Jeff Nichols’ movie about interracial love that defied laws, “Loving” (HBO, 8 p.m.), starring Ruth Negga and Joel Egerton,  gets a premium cable debut.

It’s stage 1 of the Tour de France (NBC Sports, 8 p.m.), a 14 kilometer individual time trial in Dusseldorf, Germany.

Another three hour “Say Yes to the Dress” (TLC, 8 p.m.) only proves it takes a long time for some to make a decision.

“Ghost Adventures” (Travel, 9 p.m.) goes to a haunted pizza joint in Magna, Utah.

A 35-year relationship begins to waver on “Fatal Vows” (Investigation Discovery, 10 pm.).

“Robocop” is the inspiration for some “CopyCat Killers” (Reelz, 10 p.m.).

Turner Classic Movies presents films about con artists with “The Lady Eve” (8 p.m.),  “Mr. Lucky” (10 p.m) and “Nobody Lives Forever” (midnight) before the horror film “Kiss of the Tarantula” (2 a.m.) followed by “The Bad Seed” (3:45 a.m.).

Baseball includes Boston at Toronto (MLB, 1 p.m.), Miami at Milwaukee (Fox Sports 1, 4 p.m.) and Colorado at Arizona (MLB, 10 p..m.).

Golf includes third round play in the U.S. Senior Open (Fox, 1 p.m.) and the Quicken Loans National (Golf, 1 p.m.; CBS, 3 p.m.).

Soccer has U.S. vs. Ghana (ESPN, 5 p.m.) in a men’s international friendly.

And swimming has its U.S. championships (NBC, 1 p.m.).

Band of Horses and Parker Millsap play “Austin City Limits” (PBS, 11 p.m., check local listings).

“Saturday Night Live” (NBC, 11:30 p.m.) is rerun of the one with Kristen Wiig hosting and the XX as musical guest.
