What to Watch Friday: Fairly Legal's Finale, Brave House Hunters, Amy Poehler's Big Bang and More
On TV this Friday: Fairly Legal’s Kate has to choose between two hunks, House Hunters choose between fabulous vacation homes in two destinations and Megastunts’ Nik Wallenda has to choose whether or not to plummet to his death. (Note: One of these dilemmas is a no-brainer.) Here are 10 programs to check out tonight:
8 pm Let It Shine (Disney Channel) | Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris) and Radio Disney N.B.T. finalist Coco Jones star in this musical TV-movie, in which the best friend of a teenage songwriter takes credit for his lyrics.
8 pm WWE Smackdown (Syfy) | Like peanut butter and jelly, two greats work together when WWE champion CM Punk and world heavyweight champion Sheamus tag-team to get the job done.
8:30 pm Community (NBC) | Check out Yvette Nicole Brown in this super fun repeat, as foosball unlocks Shirley’s darker instincts. Plus, animé!
9 pm Fairly Legal (USA Network) | Season 2 finale: The scandal Kate uncovers as she investigates a lesbian couple’s firing at a news station is nothing compared to the night’s big moment — will the comely mediator choose ex-husband Justin or law partner Ben? Caprica’s Esai Morales and Degrassi: The Next Generation’s Ted Atherton guest star.
9 pm Megastunts: Highwire Over Niagara Falls – Live! (ABC) | After Countdown to Niagara: The Greatest Megastunts of All Time! airs at 8 pm/7c – and if watching this kind of thing doesn’t make your feet sweat in anxious anticipation — witness daredevil Nik Wallenda tiptoe along a tightrope strung 173 feet above the famous waterfall.
9 pm The Ricky Gervais Show (HBOe) | In a bit of turnabout on behalf of any American who’s ever been stymied by a bidet, Brit Karl contemplates toilets abroad, as well as evolution, recycling and the beginnings of the universe.
9 pm House Hunters on Vacation (HGTV) | Tonight’s episode includes a tour of Pixar Studios and an extended preview of the upcoming animated film, Brave, which should hold your kids over until the movie’s release next week.
10 pm Common Law (USA Network) | Wes and Travis look into some home robberies committed by a team of masked bandits who turn out to be disgruntled members of Up With People. (Not really.) But the gang might be led by one of Travis’ foster brothers. (Really.)
9:30 pm Tyler Perry’s House of Payne (TBS) | Never a quiet moment in the Payne universe: Deshawn gets in trouble for bullying a kid at school, and Miranda and Janine begin fighting over petty things. Given that both ladies have been forgiven many times over by many people, you think they’d have a little perspective, no?
10 pm Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC) | Parks and Recreation’s Amy Poehler stops by for a little surreal chat and booty-shaking.
