Saturday Night Live
11:29/10:29c NBC
Halloween weekend presents humorous trick-or-treat opportunities for the SNL roasters, who scare up their patented skits-and-sketches comedy in the fourth live show of October. Spook-tacular and Hamm-y performances are on the bill when actor Jon Hamm, star of cable's Mad Men and the film The Town, takes on hosting duties for the third time in two years. Meanwhile, on the Studio 8H music stage, dance-pop songstress Rihanna delivers music from her forthcoming CD, Loud. — Dean Maurer

Amelia
8/7c HBO
Director Mira Nair's 2009 biopic about Amelia Earhart (1897-1937) gets a lift from Hilary Swank, who bears an uncannily striking resemblance to the trailblazing, but ultimately doomed, aviator. Of course, it doesn't hurt that Swank is also a terrific actor, and fleshes out Earhart's indomitable spirit in everything she did, whether it was living, loving, working or attempting to fly a plane around the world. The PG-rated film also stars Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor. — Joe Friedrich

Red: Werewolf Hunter
9/8c Syfy
Most of us grew up hearing the fairy tale of a girl who encountered a big bad wolf while visiting her grandmother, but who knew Little Red Riding Hood had modern-day descendants? Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumna Felicia Day portrays the titular heroine in this 2010 cable teleplay; she must save her fiancé's life after he learns the hard way what big teeth werewolves have. Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen McHattie (2012) also star. — Michael Chant

Iconoclasts
9/8c Sundance
Both filmmaker Ron Howard and NBA superstar Steve Nash have an affinity for the cinema and for sports. Both have reached the pinnacle of their professions: Howard's won a Best Director Oscar; Nash is a two-time league MVP. So the director and the point guard talk their respective professions and head to a Chicago White Sox game, where Howard throws out the first pitch, and take in a movie. Actually, they view the dailies from Howard's work in progress The Dilemma. Later, the two head to the court for a little one-on-one. — Ray Stackhouse
