What to Watch Friday: CSI: NY Gets a Clue, Haven Sees the Light, 20/20 Goes to Work and More

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.

PREVIEW | Nikita‘s Melinda Clarke on Amanda’s Torturous Plans, and Why She’s as ‘Twisted’ as Ever!

PREVIEW | Nikita First Look: Devon Sawa Is Back as Owen!

PREVIEW | Fringe Exclusive: Joshua Jackson Talks Tech Twist, Warns ‘Peter Is Rapidly Slipping Away’

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.

  25. McAmster says:

    Tim, Reba, Gordon, Tom/Donnie. DVR them all. Never watch CSI, as I’m a trained forensic investigator and hate seeing the integrity of my field harmed by actors not wearing gloves all the time at every crime scene as well as other severe forensic mistakes, but gonna watch tonight, bite my tongue, because I LOVE CLUE!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!
