    Primetimer's editors break down what's new and noteworthy on television today.

    Harry Styles is no stranger to SNL, having appeared as musical guest with his former band One Direction back in 2012, and then again as a solo act five years later. Over just two visits, he's logged an impressive collection of sketch appearances, so it only makes sense that he'd pull double duty tonight. Let it be known: if he doesn't break out his '70s-era Mick Jagger impression, we will be sorely disappointed. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Saturday:
