Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE WEEKEND

Saturday Night Live

NBC, Saturday, 11:35 p.m.

Have you been enjoying “Dangerous Woman,” the new Ariana Grande single that dropped today? And/or do you prefer that your donuts come pre-licked? Well, then you will probably very much enjoy this weekend’s SNL, where Grande will be both the host and musical guest.

ILL WILL

Flaked

Netflix, Friday, steaming

We love Will Arnett, but Flaked — his new series about an aimless and damaged midlife slacker who spends his days sleeping around in Venice — might not be for everyone. But maybe it’s for you? Check out Darren Franich’s review for more on the series to find out. (And either way, definitely watch BoJack Horseman!)

STREAM QUEENS (AND KINGS)

The Characters

Netflix, Friday, steaming

File this in the “more proof that Netflix can do whatever it wants” folder: The series gives eight different comedians one whole episode each and lets them do anything they want with it. Bold! Among the lucky comics picked this season: the amazing John Early, the hilarious Lauren Lapkus, the another-positive-superlative-here Tim Robinson, and many more.

SCHEER LEADER

Party Over Here

Fox, Saturday, 11 p.m.

Watch out, Lorne Michaels: Fox is debuting its own Saturday-night sketch comedy show, and it’s produced by Paul Scheer and the Lonely Island crew. Could this be the next MadTV? Take a look at our exclusive clip from the show (plus our Paul Scheer interview!) to judge for yourself.

SECRETS AND LICE

Bob’s Burgers

Fox, Sunday, 7:30 p.m.

Tina enters crisis mode when she gets caught up in a massive lice-infestation scandal. She’s like the Olivia Pope of grade school!

KID AND PLAY

Little Big Shots

NBC, Sunday, 8 p.m.

A kids-only variety show from producers Ellen DeGeneres and Miss Colombia. Oops, sorry, I read the press release wrong — it says Steve Harvey.

HEARTY MEAL

Naked and Afraid

Discovery, Sunday, 10 p.m.

The Alabama-set season premiere shows a man who eats a still-beating snake heart right in front of us. EW senior writer Dan Snierson is very excited about this! So excited that he posted an exclusive clip of the scene for your viewing “pleasure.”
