America’s Next Top Model 8 p.m., CW

Exhibiting Janice Dickinson-esque levels of resiliency, “Top Model” has undergone some drastic cosmetic changes and weathered some emotional ups and downs over the years, but it always smizes to face another day. Tyra’s extreme coterie makeover (replacing her old crew with a new crop including tatted stylist heartthrob Johnny Wujek, model heartthrob Rob Evans, and blogging tsetse fly Bryanboy) has made it only slightly easier to distinguish this season from past ones. Some things never change, though: Tonight the girls go on go-sees. Who doesn’t love the go-see challenge? Don’t be late, girls.


Saturday Night Live Saturday, 11:30 p.m. Channel 7

How do you feel about the new cast members? It doesn’t matter! Pulling double-duty as host and musical guest, the ever-charming/dancing/hat-wearing Bruno Mars will surely outshine them all. (Still, we’re pulling for Cicily Strong, who, by all indications thus far, is a keeper.)
