On TV this Friday: XIII: The Series wraps its freshman run, Monroe gets a Grimm warning, Haven looks inside itself and a new James Bond documentary means it’s martini time. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to look for tonight.
8 pm Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 (Epix) | With Skyfall landing in five weeks, this new documentary will have James Bond fans shaken and stirred (with excitement!) as it delves into the history behind the world’s most famous secret agent. (Want even more Bond? Daniel Craig is hosting tomorrow’s Saturday Night Live, remember.)
8 pm CSI: NY (CBS) | Leonard Brooks (played by Rob Morrow) is burning away his past, literally. Will the CSI team be able to stop him?
8:30 pm Jessie (Disney Channel) | Season 2 premiere: Halloween arrives early when a spooky story circulates about what happened to another nanny in the building, and the kids in her (s)care. (Check out a sneak preview.)
9 pm XIII: The Series (Reelz) | Season 1 finale: Pretty much everything – including the future of society and XIII’s life — rests on the terrible fact that Gerhard has stolen the weapon. So… good luck with that! (The actions series will be back for Season 2. Or, II.)
9 pm Fringe (Fox) | Good news: Information the team needs to save the world might be in Walter’s Harvard lab. Bad news: It’s now the Observers‘ Harvard Lab. (Watch a video sneak peek.)
9 pm Grimm (NBC) | Jaime Ray Newman (Eureka) returns as Monroe’s ex Angelina – hmm, wonder what Rosalee will think about that? – to inform the reformed blutbad that his alliance with Nick might cost him big-time. Also, Alice Evans (The Vampire Diaries) shows up as an old European acquaintance of Captain Renard’s… but what does she want?
9 pm Boss (Starz) | As if forming an alliance with longtime foe Alderman Ross wasn’t extreme enough, Kane later takes even crazier measures to avoid bankruptcy and keep his hold on the city.

10 pm Haven (Syfy) | Audrey and Nathan work to track a serial killer who seems to strike victims from within.
10 pm Strike Back (Cinemax) | Stonebridge and Scott are on to Knox’s plan for the nukes, but their pursuit turns dangerous; Matlock reveals to Hanson the real reasons he joined Knox. (Season 3 is coming!)
