What to Watch Friday: Shark Tank's Huge Nibble, Jessie's Big Break, 7 Psych Favorites and More

MARK CUBAN, DAYMOND JOHN, BARBARA CORCORAN, KEVIN O'LEARY, ROBERT HERJAVEC, LORI GREINEROn TV this Friday: The Job orders a Cosmo, a member of the Shark Tank leaps at an opportunity, it’s a bloody Valentine’s Day on CSI: NY and Rock Center explores the urgent need for panda procreation. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

PREVIEW | Kitchen Nightmares Exclusive: Necessity Is the Mother of an Intervention

8 pm Jessie (Disney Channel) | Jessie gets her big break as a stunt double to popular Aussie actress Shaylee Michaels (played by Maia Mitchell of Disney Channel’s upcoming Teen Beach Movie) — until, that is, she catches the eye of the starlet’s director beau.

8 pm The Job (CBS) | Someone should send an undercover boss to look under the hood of this show, which in its week-ago debut drew measly ratings. Until it gets laid off, here’s an installment where the candidates vie for a gig at Cosmopolitan. In other words: Who can write a tacky sex tips column quickest?

8 pm Last Man Standing (ABC) | Mike is ruffled when he finds out his grandson Boyd is no longer registered at school as a Baxter; Mandy, Kristin and Eve reunite the Inglorious Baxters in hopes to make a viral Valentine’s Day music video.

9 pm CSI: NY (CBS) | Oh, you had me at the episode title, “Blood Actually.” For good measure, you lobbed in a storyline about “three twisted tales of love gone wrong” — always fun. But not sure what to make of the Josh Groban cameo. (Watch a Danny/Lindsay sneak peek.)

9 pm Touch (Fox) | Religious zealot Guillermo continues to track down the “36” Righteous Ones, while Jake leads Lucy to a woman with a shocking connection to the missing Amelia.

9 pm Shark Tank (ABC) | Among the ideas being shopped tonight: An online therapy business, and six “kidpreneurs” with their unsafe driving detector device. Also: One of the Sharks makes a million-dollar offer.

10 pm Blue Bloods (CBS) | Danny’s Danny-like approach to a case lands him in anger management class. (Say hi to Charlie!) Meanwhile, Frank navigates the State Department when he tries to help a young (and pretty!) Turkish woman avoid persecution.

10 pm Merlin (Syfy) | A suspicious Merlin races to unravel Morgana’s plot before it’s too late.

10 pm Rock Center With Brian Williams (NBC) | Harry Smith visits the set of GSN’s hit game show The American Bible Challenge; Kate Snow reports on a state-of-the-art fertility clinic being used to save China’s national symbol, the panda, from extinction.

RELATED | Scoop on Psych, Grimm, Being Human and More in Matt’s Inside Line

Midnight Psych Slumber Party (USA Network) | Grab your pineapple-print PJs and prep for the long-awaited Season 7 premiere (airing Feb. 27) with this marathon of seven classic episodes, punctuated by never-before-seen content and a chance to win a trip to the set.

    CSI NY And Blue Bloods

    • KoshN says:

      Until Grimm comes back, the only thing worth watching on Friday nights are CSI:NY, Blue Bloods and maybe Psych. Trouble is, CSI:NY is ending early (not a good sign for renewal.).

  3. Tran says:

    Touch. Better watch the show starring Kiefer Sutherland. :-)

  4. Jose says:

    ummmm Spartacus DUH!

  5. TMW says:

    PBS’ Ring Them Bells. I love a Kander & Ebb song.

  6. Pati D says:

    Is Nikita not on tonight?

  7. Roni says:

    Degrassi! Season 12 resumes tonight on TeenNick.

    Also, Billy on the Street and Portlandia.

  8. Gilda says:

    A suspicious Merlin races to unravel Morgana’s plan before it’s too late.
    Wow. Now I’m excited. That’s about as good as Mad Men’s summaries.

  9. Babybop says:

    I would be watching Psych if I could stay up all night. Which I can’t… But I’ll TiVo them!

  10. King says:

    CSI: NY and Banshee for me. Spartacus if off tonight; new episodes resume next Friday.

  11. Shaun says:

    Malibu Country

    What channel is the Psych marathon on?? (The number, not the name of the channel)

    • That depends on where you live and what your cable provider is, Katie. For example, I live near Seattle and my family has Comcast so USA is 58. But in Tacoma, my grandma has Click! and watches USA on a different channel (can’t remember the number). Not really sure how you can find this out. Call the company maybe?

    The Job (I kinda like it)
    Touch (not sure how I feel about the “action” direction they seem to be taking)
