Still standing

"Marc Maron: More Later" marks the podcast pioneer's first stand-up TV special in 20 years, a rather surprising gap considering how far his star has risen in the past two decades. The performance, taped in Chicago's Vic Theatre, features rants on Skype sex, religion and ice cream. 9 p.m. Friday, EPIX

Angel gets her wings

Network TV rarely turns over prime-time real estate to classic movies anymore, but 1946's "It's a Wonderful Life" is a welcome reception with George Bailey's dash down main street still inspiring just as much Christmas cheer as Santa Claus does flying through the sky. Trivia tidbit: The movie originally didn't do so well at the box office. It was network TV's annual screenings in the 1970s that made it a holiday staple. 7 p.m. Saturday, KARE, Ch. 11

Something wild

Those expecting "Wild Yellowstone" to serve as a travel brochure for one of America's most beautiful parks underestimates cable TV's appetite for blood. This two-hour special is almost exclusively turned over to predators stalking their victims through the winter and spring months. Fortunately, most of the attempts fall short, which saves viewers from too many scenes of wolves tearing apart carcasses. 8 p.m. Sunday, National Geographic Wild

That's life

The Rat Pack is extending its membership — at least during the week when Frank Sinatra would have turned 100 years old. "Sinatra 100 — An All-Star Grammy Concert" features Tony Bennett, Garth Brooks and Alicia Keys paying tribute into the wee, small hours of the morning with rare archival footage of Ol' Blue Eyes himself. 8 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4
