Saturday TV: A Comedy, ‘Cursed Friends’

A roster of familiar comedy faces — including Nicole Byer, Harvey Guillen, James Austin Johnson, Nikki Glaser, Kathy Griffin, Will Arnettt, Ken Marino and Rob Riggle, among others, are part of the new movie “Cursed Friends” (Comedy Central, 8 p.m.), about a Halloween reunion of a bunch of childhood friends who find that the outlandish predictions they made for each other as kids are weirdly coming true, from having 100 kids to marrying Joey Fatone of NSync. 

College football does a blitz in prime time, dominating all four major broadcast networks tonight with Clemson at Boston College (ABC, 7:30 p.m.), BYU at Notre Dame (NBC, 7:30 p.m.), Washington State at USC (Fox, 7:30 p.m.) and Texas A&M at Alabama (CBS, 8 p.m.). The rest of the day’s schedule follows below. 

Night two of the “iHeart Music Festival” (CW, 8 p.m.) has performances from a roster that includes Avril Lavigne, Black Eyed Peas, Diplo, Halsey, Lionel Richie and Maren Morris and  Megan Thee Stallion.

The new made-for-TV romance “Pumpkin Everything” (Hallmark, 8 p.m.) has the same plot of every Hallmark romance — a successful city person returns to her small hometown where she helps run a holiday themed enterprise, only to meet a man from her past. At least it’s not about Christmas. Taylor Cole, Michael Ironside and Corey Sevier star. 

Other new Halloween-themed movies include “Bring It On: Cheer or Die” (Syfy, 9 p.m.) about the decimation of a squad after they start practicing at a nearly abandoned school. Kerri Medders and Tiera Skobye star.
