Saturday TV: Louis C.K. Standup, Heart Healing

It’s already made a mint on direct internet sales at $5 a pop, and a comedy award earlier this month in New York. Now “Louis C.K.: Live at the Beacon Theatre” (FX, 10 p.m.) makes its television premiere.

The award-winning standup special, which made more than $1 million in its first 11 days of availability, with a significant amount of profits going to charity,

Now it can be seen six months after it was first made available online. It may tide over Louis C.K. fans until the third season of “Louie” premieres on the same network June 28.

Genie Francis and Ted McGinley star in the new TV movie “Notes from the Heart Healer” (Hallmark, 8 p.m.) about an advice columnist turned author who finds a baby on her doorstep.

It’s the third in the series of films on the channel based on the gentle romance of “The Note,” so you can kind of guess how things shake out. Because it’s a Hallmark movie, it involves all kinds of feelings about repairing relationships to mothers. On the eve of Mother’s Day, I can only suspect it’s all to help boost sales of Hallmark greeting cards.

It was last summer’s big blockbuster, with the biggest opening weekend in history until the recent “The Avengers.” Now it makes its premium cable debut: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Part 2” (HBO, 8 p.m.). It’s preceded by part one at 5:30 p.m. Also new tonight on premium cable: “Beastly” (Showtime, 8:30 p.m.) and “The Pool Boys” (Cinemax, 10 p.m.).

An entry from another series makes prime time: “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” (ABC, 8 p.m.).

Going down to Darlington County: The Southern 500 NASCAR race (Fox, 6:30 p.m.) gets prime time play.

Beth Stern hosts the spin-off “Mom Caves” (HGTV, 8:30 p.m.).

The problem with Russell Hantz hosting a house flipping show “Flipped Off” (A&E, 10 p.m.) is that he spends so much of the renovation time looking for hidden immunity idols.

A game 7 Stanley Cup conference final guarantees excitement with Capitals at Rockies (NBC Sports, 8 p.m.).

Baseball includes Mets at Marlins (Fox, 1 p.m.).

The Decemberists and Gillian Welch play a double bill on a repeat of “Austin City Limits” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

Will Ferrell returns to host a new “Saturday Night Live” (NBC, 11:30 p.m.) with Usher as musical guest.
