Saturday TV: Hockey Returns to Canada

The delightful, Oscar-winning “Jojo Rabbit” (HBO, 8 p.m.) makes its premium cable debut. 

July is over and so is the ridiculous run of Christmas movies on Hallmark. Instead, there’s a new non-winter related romance “Romance in the Air” (Hallmark, 9 p.m.), starring Cindy Busby as a woman who takes a nostalgic trip back to Lake Tahoe only to find an old friend (Torrance Coombs).

And if you thought that Christmas in July ploy was only for that month, it’s followed by “Once Upon a Christmas Miracle” (Hallmark, 11 p.m.). 

William Shatner tries to find out more about UFOs on “The UnXplained” (History, 9 p.m.). Then the inquiry continues on “Unidentified; Inside America’s UFO Investigation” (History, 10 p.m.), though I’m pretty sure flying saucers aren’t exactly among the nation’s Top 10 problems. 

An elderly hound gets some attention on “Pit Bulls and Parolees” (Animal Planet, 9 p.m.).

In the made-for-TV thriller “Sleeping with Danger” (Lifetime, 8 p.m.) Elisabeth Rohm plays a flight attendant who tries to avoid an unhinged suitor (Antonio Cupo). 

“The Go-Go’s” (Showtime, 7:20 p.m.) gets a replay. 

Puppies invade “Vacation House Rules” (HGTV, 8 p.m.).

Feuds between two families escalate on “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” (OWN, 8 p.m.).

On “Family or Fiancé” (OWN, 9 p.m.), a couple tries to fix relationships in their own families. 

It would be a good idea to rerun this week’s inspirational funeral of Congressman John Lewis. But no. Instead: “Charles Manson: The Funeral” (Reelz, 10 p.m.).

The 2014 Australian conspiracy series starring Lucy Lawless, “The Code” (Ovation, 7 p.m.) reruns. 

On “Say Yes to the Dress” (TLC, 8 p.m.), a small town girl wants a big city look with a little bling.

A husband is convinced his wife is being attacked by a ghost on “Believers” (Travel, 9 p.m.), a show that might otherwise be titled “Flimsy Alibis.” 

“Hotel Paranormal” (Travel, 10 p.m.) has a whole lot of complaints coming to the main desk. 

A giraffe is ready to give birth on “The Secret Life of the Zoo” (Animal Planet, 10 p.m.). 

Steve is arrested on suspicion of murder on “Line of Duty” (AMC, 11 p.m.).

Turner Classic Movies begins its month-long Summer Under the Stars with a full day of Barbara Stanwyck with “Gambling Lady” (6 a.m.), “Annie Oakley” (7:15 a.m.), “B.F.’s Daughter” (9 a.m.), “Crime of Passion” (11 a.m.), “The Moonlighter” (12:30 p.m.), “East Side, West Side” (2 p.m.), “The Two Mrs. Carrolls” (4 p.m.), “Clash by Night” (6 p.m.), “Ball of Fire” (8 p.m.), “Double Indemnity” (10 p.m.), “Meet John Doe” (midnight), “The Mad Miss Manton” (2:15 a.m.) and “Lady of Burlesque” (4 a.m.). 

NBA games include Miami vs. Denver (ESPN, 1 p.m.), Utah vs. Oklahoma City (ESPN, 3:30 p.m.), New Orleans vs. Clippers (ESPN, 6 p.m.) and Lakers vs. Toronto (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.).

Soccer includes San Jose vs. Minnesota United (ESPN2, 8 p.m.) and New York City FC vs. Portland (Fox Sports 1, 10:30 p.m.). 

WNBA action has Minnesota vs. Connecticut (NBA, 4 p.m.), Washington vs. Chicago (NBA, 6 p.m.) and Los Angeles vs. Seattle (CBS Sports, 8 p.m.). 

Golf has third round play in the St. Jude Invitational (Golf, noon; CBS, 2 p.m.). 

The World Team Tennis semifinals have New York vs. Philadelphia (CBS Sports, 2 p.m.) and Chicago vs. Orlando (CBS Sports, 5 p.m.). 

Cage the Elephant and Tank and the Bangas play “Austin City Limits” (PBS, 11 p.m., check local listings). 

The season finale of “Saturday Night Live” (NBC, 11:30 p.m.), with Kristin Wiig, which aired when they were just getting the hang of virus-caused at home broadcasts, is rerun. Sadly, the shut-in jokes from early May are just as relevant nearly three months later.
