The TVLine-Up: TV Worth Watching This Friday

On TV this Friday: Nikita heads to Russia with little love, the Fringe team tracks a bitter killer, Spartacus rallies the troops and more. In addition to TVLine’s original features (linked in red) and March Madness taking place on CBS, here are seven programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC) | Mad About You‘s Helen Hunt learns of the trials and triumphs of her paternal ancestors, including her great-great-grandfather’s involvement in launching Wells Fargo and her great-great-grandmother’s role in the fight for women’s rights.

8 pm Nikita (The CW) | Michael is furious when he discovers a secret that Cassandra kept from him, so he and Nikita fly to Moscow to confront her; Alex makes a last ditch effort to find her mother by sending out a coded message through a televised interview. (Watch our exclusive first look video!)

10 pm Merlin (Syfy) | In Part 1 of the Season 4 finale, Morgana closes in on Camelot as she leads the powerful Southron army, successfully forcing Arthur and his close loyals to run for their lives; smugglers Tristan and Isolde have little love for Arthur.
