BEST BETS

NCIS / 8:00pm (13) While the NCIS team is in­ves­ti­gat­ing a hit-and-run in­ci­dent, Jimmy Palmer (Brian Di­et­zen) risks his life by join­ing a per­fect stranger stand­ing on the dizzy­ingly high out­side ledge of a build­ing, in a des­per­ate at­tempt to keep the man from com­mit­ting sui­cide, in “Keep Go­ing.” Spencer Treat Clark guest stars; Mark Har­mon, Pauley Per­rette, Sean Mur­ray and Wilmer Valder­rama also star.

Halt and Catch Fire / 9:00pm (AMC) 10:04pm (AMC) 4:38am (AMC) A new episode called “Nowhere Man” gives sup­port­ing player Toby Huss a wel­come chance to shine as his char­ac­ter, John “Boz” Bos­worth, reaches a break­ing point un­der pres­sure from his fal­ter­ing mar­riage and a sense that his per­sonal rel­e­vance is van­ish­ing. Else­where, Donna (Kerry Bishe) grap­ples with some mount­ing sus­pi­cions.

Run­ning Wild With Bear Grylls / 10:00pm (4) Vanessa Hud­gens (“Pow­er­less,” “High School Mu­si­cal”) likely gets into much more than she bar­gained for in this new episode, which al­most turns out to be her own ver­sion of “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” She and ad­ven­turer Grylls land in the High Sier­ras af­ter rap­pelling from a he­li­copter, then have to evade a cas­cade of boul­ders and sur­vive an en­counter with a rat­tlesnake. Climb­ing a vol­cano that sup­pos­edly is dor­mant is an­other of the chal­lenges they face.

MOVIE “Il­licit” / 10:00pm (BET) David Ram­sey (“Ar­row”) stars in this 2017 thriller as a nice-guy pa­role of­fi­cer mar­ried to a beau­ti­ful ex-model (Shireen Crutch­field), a union that works nicely un­til she de­cides she wants to go back to work. Vivica A. Fox and Dean Cain also star.

Satur­day Night Live / 11:29pm (4) Hav­ing had both “Sully” and “In­ferno” on theater screens at the time, Tom Hanks marked his ninth turn as a guest host on the pro­gram with this episode from last Oc­to­ber. The tele­cast also has def­i­nite star power in its mu­si­cal guest: Lady Gaga.

“Run­ning Wild With Bear Grylls’’ airs Satur­day on NBC.
