Saturday Night Live Saturday at 11:30 p.m., NBC
It’s a cliché to say that “Saturday Night Live” hasn’t been the same since [fill in the blank] left. But, well, “SNL” hasn’t been the same since Kristen Wiig left. She was one of the cast members for the ages. Saturday night, she returns, and I am eager to watch her play around again. Please let them do “The Californians.” And the woman who can’t keep surprise party secrets. And Penelope. And . . . Vampire Weekend will perform. Pictured: Wiig with Jon Hamm in 2012.
Maron 10 p.m., IFC
The podcaster-comic’s new series is likable, a more soft-hearted take on male neurosis and Los Angeles than “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The second episode of Marc Maron’s sitcom is a little better than last week’s premiere, with Denis Leary (pictured) guest starring as Marc’s podcast interview of the week. Josh Brener, a Hasty Pudding alum who recently shot a Mike Judge pilot for HBO, steals the show as Marc’s assistant. Together, Maron and Brener try to remove a dead possum from underneath Maron’s home, and things don’t go smoothly. Naturally, issues of masculinity come into play.
