Tonight: Beyoncé on HBO; OWN; Christoph Waltz hosts ‘SNL’



First Look: Oprah’s Next Chapter with Beyoncé
Think Beyoncé is overexposed?
In recent weeks, the singer has generated wide discussion after her perormances at Barack Obama's second inauguration and during the Super Bowl halftime. Did she cheat at the inauguration by singing to a track? Was she too sexy at the Super Bowl? She rolls forward, a superstar undeterred.
If you're operating on Beyoncé overload, you'll want to steer clear of OWN and HBO Saturday night. HBO presents the singer in the documentary "Life Is but a Dream" at 9. In this highly personal work -- she is listed as a director -- the Grammy-winner discusses her marriage, baby, parents, career and goals. The 90-minute work also serves up flashy concert performances. Beyoncé turns surprisingly vulnerable offstage, but she projects a robust style onstage. When she pledges to do her best for the audience, you believe her.
Oprah Winfrey talks to Beyoncé on "Oprah's Next Chapter" at 8 on OWN. Beyoncé's topics, according to OWN, include "her daughter Blue Ivy, what Jay Z is like as a father and as a husband, letting her father (music executive Matthew Knowles) go as her manager, her heartbreaking miscarriage and what is next for her career and her life."
Also Saturday:
Oscar-nominee Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained") hosts "Saturday Night Live" at 11:30 p.m. on NBC. Waltz has a smooth charm in his movie performances; will that translate to live television? The musical guest is Alabama Shakes.
If you want a timely science program, check "Russian Meteor Explosion" at 8 on Science Channel. The topic is the meteor that broke up over over Chelyabinsk, Russia, and injured 1,100.
CBS' "48 Hours" offers "Honor and Dishonor" at 10. CBS News says the program gives "a rare look at the Army’s Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) judicial system as it handles a case of double murder." The case: The attempted prosecution of Army Sgt. Brent Burke in the 2007 murders of Tracy Burke and Karen Comer. Tracy and Brent had been going through a turbulent divorce.
Closer to home, at the Daytona International Speedway, Fox presents the "The Sprint Unlimited at Daytona" at 8. Guiding viewers through the first race of this year's NASCAR season will be announcer Mike Joy and analysts Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip.
