Christmas at Pemberly Manor (8 p.m., Hallmark) - Hallmark throws out the first new Christmas movie of the holiday season and it sounds like an instant classic: a handsome billionaire (Michael Rady) living in a small town has lost his Christmas spirit, but he meets a New York City party planner (Jessica Lowndes) and falls back in love with Christmas - and with the party planner. It sounds a little like last year’s “Coming Home For Christmas,” but we don’t care! It’s Hallmark Christmas Movie Season! Not only do we get 22 new movies on the main channel this year (plus 15 new movies on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries starting Nov. 4), starting tonight the Christmas programming is 24/7 through the holidays. While you’re indulging, don’t forget to check out our Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game. Play responsibly.

Zombie at 17 (8 p.m., Lifetime) — In this new Lifetime movie, a 17-year-old girl begins exhibiting strange symptoms and realizes she’s turning into a zombie. Desperate to find a cure, she turns to a loner who claims to be an expert in all things paranormal.

Saturday Night Live (11:30 p.m., NBC) - A special with Halloween-themed sketches from past seasons of the show, featuring Haunted Elevator (with David S. Pumpkins), Vincent Price’s Halloween Special, and Trick or Treat with Jon Hamm.
