What to Watch: The TVLine-Up for Friday

On TV this Friday: A Lost alum joins Fringe‘s futuristic battle, former Beverly Hills resident Jennie Garth is now a little bit country, Ricky Gervais‘ animated adventures return and more. In addition to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are seven programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The Finder (Fox) | While tracking down a missing father — with a partial voicemail as the only lead — an attractive FBI agent (Nip/Tuck‘s Kelly Carlson) tries to squeeze as much information as she can out of Walter.

Facing Nikita‘s ‘Wrath’: 7 Scoopy Bits From Tonight’s Extraordinary Episode

9 pm Fringe (Fox) | The mind-bending 19th episode tradition continues as the story jumps ahead to 2036, when the Observers and the Fringe team engage in a game-changing battle. Lost‘s Henry Ian Cusick guest-stars. (See photos and get scoop, scoop and more scoop!)

9 pm Grimm (NBC) | When Nick discovers that Monroe and Rosalee are harboring a murder suspect (Lost alum Neil Hopkins), he realizes he’s hunting the hunted — a freedom fighter trying to escape the clutches of a creature bounty hunter (Supernatural‘s Sebastian Roche).

9 pm Fairly Legal (USA) | Kate and Ben team up, representing the victim of alleged police brutality against Justin and the SF Police Department; Lauren defends herself against an ethics violation. Brian Goodman (Rizzoli & Isles) and Larisa Oleynik (aka Alex Mack!) guest-star.

9 pm Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country (CMT) | On the heels of Shannen Doherty’s own reality series debut, this new show chronicles the Beverly Hills, 90210 star’s move from Los Angeles to a farm in Central California. In the first episode, there is a bet involving sucking a cow’s udder. What would Kelly Taylor say?

9 pm The Ricky Gervais Show (HBO) | In the Season 3 premiere, Karl pitches his new idea for a film about a man whose brain is transported into Tom Cruise’s body.

Preview: Supernatural‘s Jim Beaver on Bobby’s Ghost Powers and Taking the Fight to Dick Roman

10 pm In Plain Sight (USA Network) | The return of Mary’s fugitive father puts Brandi and Jinx in danger, while Mary struggles to determine whom she can trust. Smallville‘s Aaron Ashmore guest-stars.

  • Finder and Grimm for me. Grimm is getting really good and I while I don’t believe Fox will give Finder a season 2 I’m going to enjoy Walter and his pals for as long as they are on.

  • So glad Nikita is back! Can’t wait to see this episode, all the comments the cast & crew made when it was filmed make it sound like a really powerful episode.

  • Finder live (I’ve got my fingers crossed the failure of Alcatraz and the way Touch is crashing week to week convince TPTB to give the best new show this year another go).

    Fringe Live.

    DVR Grimm and Nikita

  • Supernatural and Nikita of course. I quite like Grimm but it is a ‘catch up when I get chance’ show for me.

  • It’s Fringe Friday!! Tonight is the epic battle between the observers and Fringe division in the year 2036. This episode is so going into the history of Fringe’s best episode, I’ll bet.

  • I am so glad to see some of you will be watching The Finder. I know it won’t make it for a renewal, but I really like watching it. It’s nothing spectacular, but I find it enjoyable. I am looking forward to the episode with Walter’s family at the end of the season.

  • Supernatural live and more than once and then Grimm as either background noise for when I’m doing something else or if it’s interesting enough I’ll watch and the Finder is on the DVR for sure.

  • No Fringe, Finished with Fringe.

    We were supposed to be getting the Olivia backstory, instead we got 1 episode of Olivia being reduced to even more Peters girl..
    No decent storyline for Olivia in 4 seasons, in total may be 12 decent written episodes, Anna makes Olivia (and Fauxlvia) Dunham , not the writing.
    This Over overhyped 4.19 has no Olivia, no great Anna Torv, she was not shooting a film like Jackson in 4,.17 and 4,18, but the showrunners decided that after Anna had to destroy her own character twice, she now can be replaced by any blonde actress, australian on top. I am disgusted.
    419 sets up season 5, so Fringe is finished for me, if that is how they can treat their female lead character and actress.
    Imagine them doing that to Noble and Jackson. the media would be outraged and they would be all over the media complaining.
