Today’s Best Bets


Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

BBCA | 9:00 pm
As this season’s Gordian knot of a story line continues down several false leads and red herrings that turn out to be, well, something else, Dirk, Todd and Farah (Samuel Barnett, Elijah Wood, Jade Eshete) keep racking their brains for the identity of this "boy" Dirk is supposed to find in a new episode called, quite unhelpfully in that regard "Girl Power." Meanwhile, multiple villains converge, all determined to stop the good guys. Alan Tudyk also stars. […]

Saturday Night Live

NBC | 11:29 pm
There surely is a big musical slant to this new episode, featuring Chance the Rapper … but as a first-time host, not the musical guest (a role he has filled twice here).

Ophelia Lovibond ("Elementary") also stars. […]

Iyanla, Fix My Life

OWN | 9:00 pm
As Iyanla continues her therapy sessions with the four ex-cons struggling to fit into society after a long stint in prison, she soon notices that Willie seems to be her biggest challenge. He especially seems to resist bonding with Donterio, who waited 21 years for his father’s release. Now Willie insists that if he can only get a DNA test, he can prove he’s not even the young man’s parent. […]
