At 10: The Warriors take on Lewis in the Outrigger Hotels Volleyball Invitational. Watch the game at 7:30 on K5, then tune into News 8 at 10 for highlights.
"U.S. Figure Skating Championships," 7 p.m., ABC. The event is held in Atlanta this year. Michelle Kwan forever frustrated in a quest for Olympic gold has dominated it with six straight wins. Sasha Cohen is one of her key competitors.
"Dinosaur" (2000), 2, 8 p.m., Disney Channel. On the big screen, this was a modest disappointment. The computer animation was well done, but the characters seemed stiff and personality-free. As free family entertainment on cable, however, the film is still worth catching.
NFL Football, 11:30 a.m., Fox. The NFL playoffs continue with the Carolina Panthers at the St. Louis Rams.
NFL Football, 3 p.m., CBS. The Tennessee Titans visit the New England Patriots in the playoffs.
"Goldfinger" (1964), 4 p.m., and "Thunderball" (1965), 6 p.m., AMC. The third and fourth James Bond films added lots of flash and glitter but kept the solid base of Sean Connery as Bond. The results were great fun.
"The Thomas Crown Affair" (1999), 5 p.m., TBS. This slick and stylish caper film is thoroughly entertaining. Pierce Brosnan is a rich thief and Rene Russo is the investigator who's supposed to stop him. The result is a great-looking film with a smart plot.
"Average Joe: Hawaii," 7 p.m., and "The Apprentice," 8 p.m., both NBC. If you missed the season-openers for either show here's a second chance. "Joe" is a mean-spirited show in which a beauty thinks she'll meet 18 hunks, but instead finds guys who are merely average. "The Apprentice," by comparison, has originality and flair; it has 16 gifted business people vying for the presidency of one of Donald Trump's divisions. In the opener, the contestants simply try to sell lemonade.
"Saturday Night Live," 10:30 p.m., NBC. After weeks of reruns, this is a new episode. Jennifer Anniston hosts and the Black Eyed Peas are the musical guest.
