Critic’s Corner: What’s on TV Saturday

Saturday Night Live 10 p.m., Channel 7

Cute! NBC is now repurposing the previous Saturday’s episode on Saturday nights in prime time. So here is last week’s Justin Timberlake episode, trimmed down to an hour. The ratings have been low for the prime-time re-airings — but then so are the ratings for just about everything else on NBC. Plus, the price of re-airing “SNL” is lower for NBC than paying to re-air a scripted show such as “Law & Order: SVU.”
