7 p.m. on OXY The DNA of Mur­der With Paul Holes

The cel­e­brated in­ves­ti­ga­tor who spent two and a half decades of his ca­reer doggedly pur­su­ing the Golden Gate Killer, a no­to­ri­ous mul­ti­ple mur­derer, gets his own show in this new true­crime se­ries, which fol­lows Holes as he seeks an­swers in un­solved crimes by an­a­lyz­ing the phys­i­cal and emo­tional “DNA” left be­hind dur­ing a vi­o­lent in­ci­dent. Tonight’s 90-minute pre­miere re­vis­its a 1980 mur­der in Wil­liams­burg, Iowa, where two guests at a Hol­i­day Inn were found fa­tally blud­geoned in their room.

8 p.m. on LIFE Movie: The Col­lege Ad­mis­sions Scan­dal

Loosely based on the on­go­ing aca­demic scan­dal in­volv­ing celebrity de­fen­dants Felic­ity Huff­man and Lori Lough­lin, this 2019 drama stars Pene­lope Ann Miller and Mia Kir­sh­ner as a pair of wealthy moth­ers who share an ob­ses­sive de­sire to get their daugh­ters into the best pos­si­ble col­lege. Rick Singer (Michael Shanks), a smooth-talk­ing col­lege ad­mis­sions consultant, of­fers them what sounds like a fool­proof plan to achieve their dream, un­til the FBI picks up on Singer’s ploy and both moms face a mor­ti­fy­ing le­gal or­deal.

8 p.m. on HBO Movie: Happy Death Day 2U

This se­quel to the sur­prise 2017 box­of­fice hit “Happy Death Day” spins the story into more of a sci-fi di­rec­tion with a healthy dash of black com­edy. Lead­ing lady Jes­sica Rothe re­turns as Tree Gelb­man, who wakes to find her­self stuck in a par­al­lel uni­verse. In that world, her boyfriend Carter (Is­rael Brous­sard) is with some­one else, and her friends and fel­low stu­dents are dra­mat­i­cally dif­fer­ent variations of per­son­al­i­ties back home. Worse, she finds her­self once again the tar­get of a masked killer.

8:29 p.m. on 24.1 KSEE Satur­day Night Live

Tonight’s show is the last new episode be­fore Hal­loween, which may ex­plain why the host of choice is ac­tor David Har­bour, cur­rently best known for his por­trayal of grumpy yet heroic chief of po­lice Jim Hop­per in the Net­flix retro-thriller “Stranger Things.” That hit se­ries seems a likely sub­ject for a par­ody (if not the an­swer to Hop­per’s am­bigu­ous fate in the Sea­son 3 “Stranger” fi­nale). The night’s mu­si­cal guest is Cuban-Amer­i­can singer-song­writer and ac­tress Camila Ca­bello.

9 p.m. on HALL Movie: Love, Fall & Order

As au­tumn ar­rives, New York at­tor­ney Claire Hart (Erin Cahill) trav­els back to her Ver­mont home­town to help save her dad’s (Gre­gory Har­ri­son) farm, which is at risk in a bit­ter le­gal bat­tle with his neigh­bor. She runs into her old high school ri­val, Patrick Har­ris (Trevor Dono­van), now a lawyer him­self — who also hap­pens to be rep­re­sent­ing the woman who is su­ing Claire’s dad. Thus, they find them­selves on op­pos­ing sides of the court case, but that can’t stop an au­tumn ro­mance from grow­ing.

10:03 p.m. on LIFE Be­yond the Head­lines: The Col­lege Ad­mis­sions Scan­dal With Gretchen Carl­son

Air­ing as a one-hour com­pan­ion spe­cial to the orig­i­nal movie “The Col­lege Ad­mis­sion Scan­dal,” this spe­cial finds TV jour­nal­ist Gretchen Carl­son delv­ing into the de­tails of the bizarre yet true story of how mem­bers of the rich and fa­mous blithely used their money and in­flu­ence to get their chil­dren ac­cep­tance into the best col­leges in Amer­ica. The hour also ex­am­ines how an FBI in­ves­ti­ga­tion blew the scam out of the wa­ter.
