TO WATCH

Saturday Night Live, 11:30 p.m., NBC Miley Cyrus and her coffee-and-cigarettes voice are both musical guest and host tonight. There's no telling exactly what they're going to make fun of, but it's probably got something to do with wagging tongues, latex hotpants and destroying sets.

Scarecrow, 9 p.m., SyFy Party of Five's Lacey Chabert battles a scarecrow that comes to life and kills people. She's had experience with that after starring with Lindsay Lohan in Mean Girls.
