Saturday TV: Considering Horror Films

Poor film director, writer and actor returns to revel in his favorites in the genre on “Eli Roth’s History of Horror” (AMC, 10 p.m.) which begins with his musing on haunted houses. Further look at horror movies can be found on “Cursed Films” (AMC, 11 p.m.) which looks at poltergeist movies. 

We get the movies we deserve: Here’s the premium cable premiere of the musical “Cats” (HBO, 8 p.m.). Also new tonight: the war between Edison and Westinghouse in “The Current War” (Showtime, 9 p.m.) with Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon and Tom Holland. 

Country singer Morgan Wallen missed his chance to be musical guest tonight on “Saturday Night Live” (NBC, 11:30 p.m.) by cavorting in Tuscaloosa last weekend in violation of Covid protocols. He’ll be replaced by Jack White and, it has been hinted, some other musical guests. (Certainly music was the one strong point in last week’s otherwise disappointing season premiere). Bill Burr hosts.

“Coronavirus: Facts and Fears: A CNN Town Hall” with Former CDC Directors” (CNN, 9 p.m.) might set the record straight following misinformation from any other ill-considered speeches today. 

How can presidential elections go wrong? “Bush v. Gore: The Endless Election” (CNN, 11:15 p.m.) provides a reminder from 2000.
