Saturday TV: Bigfoot Brings Two Together

After producing movies like “Dinocroc,” “SuperGator,” “Sharktopus,” “Frankenfish” “Arachnoquake,” and later tonight, “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid” (Syfy, 11 p.m.)., Syfy has no need to combine names for its newest original movie.

“Bigfoot” (Syfy, 9 p.m.) combines stars from two old kitschy shows, “The Partridge Family” and “The Brady Bunch,” Danny Bonaduce and Barry Williams as a DJ and a conservationist that team up to fight not TV Land reruns and the nostalgia that hampers their career, but a strangely giant sized Sasquatch, in a film that also features Alice Cooper. Welcome to their nightmare.

In another original movie tonight, a computer hacker must use her skills to clear her name of a murder rap on “Fugitive at 17” (Lifetime, 8 and 10 p.m.), which may be first in a number of movies in which the action comes from someone sitting at a keyboard the whole time.

The felines on “My Cat From Hell” (Animal Planet, 8 p.m.) can be pretty frightful, but as the second season of the series begins, I’d say that host and mediator Jackson Galaxy is pretty scary in his own right.

As often happens in real life, “My Cat from Hell” is followed by “Bad Dog!” (Animal Planet, 9 p.m.).

The terrific “Twenty Twelve” (BBC America, midnight) move to its permanent time slot.

“Final Destination 5” (HBO, 8 p.m.) makes its cable premium debut. Also on: “Cars 2” (Starz, 9 p.m.) and “Recoil” (Cinemax, 10 p.m.).

Director Preston Sturges play on Turner Classic Movies with “Sullivan’s Travels” (8 p.m.), “Christmas in July” (9:45 p.m.), “The Great Mcginty” (11 p.m.), “The Lady Eve” (12:30 a.m.), “Hail the Conquering Hero” (2:15 a.m.), and “The Palm Beach Story” (4 a.m.).

Randy Newman plays a rerun of “Austin City Limits” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

The Emma Stone-hosted “Saturday Night Live” (NBC, 11:30 p.m.) with Coldplay is rerun.
