What to Watch: The TVLine-Up for Friday
On TV this Friday: The Finder finds a new time slot, a Grimm vacation is derailed by creepy neighbors, Magic City officially opens its doors and more. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are seven programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm The Finder (Fox) | New time slot alert! When new tracks are leaked from a dead rapper, a music mogul (guest star 50 Cent) and his lawyer (Eureka‘s Salli Richardson-Whitfield) — who also happens to be Leo’s former love interest — enlist Walter to find the source. (As mentioned in Ask Ausiello, stay tuned for someone’s “bad rap.”)
8 pm Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC) | Armed with little information, Nurse Jackie‘s Edie Falco travels from New York to Milwaukee to England, learning about her family’s origins, secrets and tragedies.
9 pm Grimm (NBC) | Nick’s Grimm duties get in the way of romance on a trip with Juliette when he meets the unsettling neighbors (American Horror Story‘s Azure Skye and Ed‘s Josh Randall) who have a rare and valuable treasure to protect; back in Portland, Hank and Monroe each find themselves on the cusp of romantic relationships. (Check out an exclusive video clip!)
9 pm Fringe (Fox) | Lincoln travels to the other side to join forces with Bolivia and his own alternate as they search for a vigilante with a surprising connection to the shapeshifters. (Watch a very fun video sneak peek, and click this link to tell us: Should Fringe get a Season 5?)
9 pm CSI: NY (CBS) | The CSIs find themselves immersed in the world of competitive videogaming when they discover a murder may be related to a high-stakes tournament. Fingers crosses for a Horatio Caine crossover, if only to say, “It appears our victim… ran out of lives. Game. Over.”
10 pm Magic City (Starz) | Series premiere: Set in Miami Beach circa 1959, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Supernatural/Grey’s Anatomy) stars as a luxury hotel owner who in order to secure his dream begrudgingly gets in bed with a mob boss (Danny Huston, Children of Men) — all while his former showgirl wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace) remains blissfully unaware.
10 pm In Plain Sight (USA) | Mary protects a WITSEC’d bigamist not only from his former employer but also his two wives. Friday Night Lights‘ Stacey Oristano guest-stars.
