Saturday: Chris Rock’s Selective Outrage

Before next weekend’s Oscars, Chris Rock has a thing or two to say about last year’s event, when as host he was notoriously slapped by a nominee who was not evicted for his outburst. Tonight’s live comedy special, “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage” (Netflix, 10 p.m.) gives him a unique opportunity. Streaming live worldwide from Baltimore, the event will have its own pre show and after show. Ronnie Chieng hosts “The Show Before the Show” (9:30 p.m.) with a guest list that includes Amy Schumer, Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez, Ice-T, Jerry Seinfeld, Jimmy Fallon, Kevin Hart, Matthew McConaughey, Paul McCartney, Sarah Silverman, Tracy Morgan, Wanda Sykes, and Woody Harrelson.

“The Show After the Show” (Netflix, 11 p.m.), hosted by David Spade and Dana Carvey, will include JB Smoove and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as guests (Will Smith is apparently not invited).

CBS sports analyst Nate Burleson and “Dancing with the Stars” winner Charli D’Amelio cohost the the 35th Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards 2023  (Nickelodeon, 7 p.m.) from Los Angeles where Adam Sandler will win a special award and Lil Baby and Bebe Rexha are slated to perform. And there will be slime.

Another big awards show is restricted to YouTube, the 38th Film Independent Spirit Awards (YouTube, 5 p.m.) hosted by Hasan Minaj. 

“Frozen Planet II” (BBC America, 8 p.m.) ends its run with David Attenborough looking at parts of the globe especially threatened by climate change. It’s followed by the behind-the-scenes special “The Making of ‘Frozen Planet II’” (BBC America, 9:23 p.m.).
