Outlander (8pm, Starz) - I messed up on the premiere date of this one – it actually debuted Saturday night. But it repeats tonight at 8 and again at 9, so it’s not too late to catch up if you missed it (or just watch again!). Plus, Starz, a premium/pay channel, put the pilot online and on demand earlier in the week, and it was viewed nearly a million times before Saturday. In the first episode, a married British combat nurse ( Caitriona Balfe) time-travels from World War II to 1743 Scotland, where she is kidnapped by Highlanders and tends to an injured young warrior.
