2018 Wim­ble­don Cham­pi­onships / 9:00am (ESPN) Ro­ma­nia’s Si­mona Halep, cur­rently the world’s top-ranked ladies player, came into the All-Eng­land Lawn Ten­nis and Cro­quet Club in Wim­ble­don on the heels of her first Grand Slam ti­tle at the French Open af­ter los­ing in the fi­nal at the Aus­tralian Open. Will she be left stand­ing to­day for the ladies fi­nal of the Wim­ble­don Cham­pi­onships?

NASCAR Rac­ing / 7:30pm (NBCSP) Ken­tucky Speed­way in Sparta is the lo­ca­tion of one of newer races on the Mon­ster En­ergy Cup Se­ries cir­cuit, hav­ing been run since only 2011. Yet, Brad Ke­selowski has found a niche at the 1.5-mile tri-oval, win­ning three of the seven races held there so far. Iron­i­cally, cur­rent Cup stand­ings leader Kyle Busch has won two of these events, and a third would go a long way to­ward widen­ing his lead. Truth and Lies: The Fam­ily Man­son / 9:00pm (7) Fol­low­ing the rat­ings suc­cess of its doc­u­men­tary on the Me­nen­dez broth­ers — and of tele­vi­sion’s true­crime genre in gen­eral lately — ABC News re-ex­am­ined an­other in­fa­mous case, largely re­volv­ing around the Au­gust 1969 mur­ders or­dered by cult leader Charles Man­son. Ac­tress Sharon Tate was among the vic­tims, and though Man­son and sev­eral of his fol­low­ers were given the death penalty, the sen­tences were com­muted un­der re­vised Cal­i­for­nia law to life in prison.

Liv­ing Bi­b­li­cally / 9:00pm (13) “Thou Shalt Not Covet,” which also is the ti­tle of this new episode, proves a tough com­mand­ment for Chip (Jay R. Fer­gu­son) to live by when he be­comes a con­tender for a jour­nal­ism award. His ri­vals for the honor in­clude Vince (Tony Rock), which stokes the sense of com­pe­ti­tion that Fa­ther Gene and Rabbi Gil (Ian Gomez, David Krumholtz) ad­vise Chip to sti­fle.

MOVIE “Baby Driver” / 10:05pm (Show­time) One of the big­gest sleeper hits of 2017, Edgar Wright’s ac­tion drama about a young mu­sic lover (Ansel El­gort) forced to work as a get­away driver for a crime king­pin (Kevin Spacey) boasts daz­zling vi­su­als, a killer sound­track and a ter­rific gallery of per­for­mances from an eclec­tic cast that also in­cludes Lily James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and Jon Bern­thal.

Jay R. Fer­gu­son stars in “Liv­ing Bi­b­li­cally” Satur­day on CBS.
