Saturday TV: ‘Between the World and Me’

Ta-Nehisi Coates’ letter to his son gets a powerful and affecting reading from a dozen top talents in “Between the World and Me” (HBO, 8 p.m.), which features strong performances from Angela Bassett (pictured), Mahershala Ali, Angela Davis, Wendell Pierce, Phylicia Rashad, Yara Shahidi and Oprah Winfrey.

“A Nashville Christmas Carol” (Hallmark, 8 p.m.) mixes Dickens with pickers, as the old story is revived with a cast that includes such performers as Wynonna Judd, Sara Evans, Kix Brooks and someone married to to a country star, Kimberly Williams-Paisley. 

A competing holiday romance, “Feliz NaviDAD” (Lifetime, 8 p.m.), reunites Melissa Joan Hart and Mario Lopez.

And Jill Wagner and Lucas Bryant star in yet another Yuletide flick, “The Angel Tree” (Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, 9 p.m.).

A high school senior is blackmailed by her cousin in the made for TV thriller “Pretty Cheaters, Deadly Lies” (Lifetime Movie Network, 8 p.m.). 

Rudy Giuliani has canceled his appearance on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” (Fox News, 9 p.m.), possibly to avoid any further hair dye mishaps.

The sci-fi horror film “Underwater” (HBO, 9:25 p.m.) with Kristen Stewart makes its premium cable debut.
