Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story (8 p.m., Lifetime) – Catherine Zeta-Jones stars as Griselda Blanco, a pioneer drug kingpin in the Miami-based cocaine trade. Blanco was known for her willingness to use violence against her rivals, a fact which led to numerous assassination attempts and forced her to move her business to California. Zeta-Jones has said this movie, based on a true story, reignited her passion for acting.

One Winter Weekend (9 p.m., Hallmark) – In Hallmark’s latest WinterFest movie, a magazine writer burned out on dating decides to go on a dating detox. She goes on a ski getaway with her best friend, but the resort mistakenly double-books them with two eligible men. Two romances for the price of one, folks – and one of the couples is African American. It’s a Hallmark unicorn.

Saturday Night Live (11:30 p.m., NBC) – Jessica Chastain hosts with musical performer Troye Sivan.
