On TV this Friday: CSI: NY may have to consult with Professor Plum, Haven‘s Nate is headin’ for Heaven, Last Man Standing is rather dodgy and 20/20 looks at cubicle culture. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are eight programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Undercover Boss (CBS) | Tilted Kilt boss Ron Lynch goes undercover at his chain of Hooters-meets-Scotland pubs — though presumably not in one of the waitresses’ trademark outfits.
8 pm Last Man Standing (ABC) | Mike forms a secret afterschool dodgeball club for Boyd and the neighborhood kids. It’s like Fight Club for the Phineas and Ferb crowd… we think.
9 pm Shark Tank (ABC) | A California entrepreneur claims his motorized vehicle suit can take you from walking to driving in an instant. If this is even a quarter as cool as it sounds, Sharks, give this guy some cash!
9 pm CSI: NY (CBS) | The CSIs are forced to play along with a Clue-obsessed murderer who’s systematically offing patients of a British psychiatrist (played by Ringer‘s Tara Summers). Don’t worry, guys. I’ve got this one: It was Colonel Mustard, in the study, with the wrench!
9 pm Grimm (NBC) | Now that Hank thinks about it, maybe the murderer he arrested earlier in his career (Dexter‘s Jason Gedrick) – whose death sentence is about to be carried out – was actually just protecting himself from a Wesen. Hmm. Lisa Vidal (The Event) also guest-stars.
10 pm Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO) | Political strategist James Carville, commentators S.E. Cupp and Andrew Sullivan and The Avengers‘ Samuel L. Jackson show up to rehash Tuesday’s election.
10 pm 20/20 (ABC) | It’s like The Office without Jim and Pam! The news journal looks at the American workplace with pieces on crazy commutes, Reply-All nightmares, office romances and the story of an enterprising teen who secretly lived at AOL corporate headquarters for months.
10 pm Haven (Syfy) | In the conclusion of “Magic Hour,” Audrey is pushed to her extremes with a dying Nathan.
