Ah, another Saturday. We've got reheated leftovers in prime-time, mostly, save for one outlier.

Tonight you can catch the Global Goal: Unite For Our Future Concert at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC. This one's billed as "A musical celebration of scientists, innovators, health workers, activists and organizations working to develop and distribute COVID-19 tests, treatments and vaccines." And while it's not necessarily going to solve anything on its own, it definitely won't hurt.

Elsewhere, the English Premier League and Italy's Serie A have European soccer headed our way, and you can catch the woman in action in the NWSL Challenge Cup. And UFC Fight Night is back at it on ESPN this evening.

Check out the full schedule below. All times are Eastern.
