What to Watch Friday: Banshee's Finale, Stymied Blue Bloods, Disney's Wizards Return and More

Banshee FinaleOn TV this Friday: Banshee goes out with a bang, Blue Bloods search for a terrible common denominator, Selena Gomez plays naughty and nice Wizards, snow proves problematic for Spartacus (and not just because of his skimpy attire) and will sex sell on Fashion Star? As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex (Disney Channel) | One-hour TV movie: The Russo family travels to Italy to meet distant relatives… and Alex inadvertently casts a spell that splits her into Good Alex and Evil Alex. (Check out a sneak peek photo and video!)

8 pm Nikita (The CW) | Nikita gets in the way of Alex’s plans to break herself and a fellow prisoner free from Amanda’s capture.

8 pm Fashion Star (NBC) | The designers’ task – to present their sexiest pieces to the buyers – poses a question: Bare all or leave something to the imagination?

8 pm Last Man Standing (ABC) | Richard Karn (Home Improvement) returns as Bill McKendree, whose live hasn’t gone so great since Mike denied him an Outdoor Man account. Where are Wilson and his wisdom when you need them?!

8:30 pm Malibu Country (ABC) | Reba finally meets Mr. Bata in person and gets her big break… writing commercial jingles. (Hey Reeb, at least you’ll be in good company.)

PREVIEW | Grimm Criminals Trash Wesen Code, Ticking Off Monroe and Teeing Up a ‘Witch Hunt’

9 pm The World According to Dick Cheney (Showtime) | This two-hour documentary from Nashville executive producer R.J. Cutler profiles the former vice president from his early days in Washington to his White House years alongside President George W. Bush.

9 pm Spartacus: War of the Damned (Starz) | Spartacus and Crixus clash over the best way to clear their forces from an impassable, snowbound ridge.

9 pm Touch (Fox) | As Guillermo closes in on Martin and Jake – and the body count rises — Jake’s ability to communicate with Amelia proves critical in defending his life.

RELATED | May Sweeps Scorecard: Deaths, Weddings, Births, Sex, Resurrections, Firings and More!

10 pm Banshee (Cinemax) | Season 1 finale: Recalling a series of prison therapy sessions that fueled his hatred of Rabbit, and pressured by Xavier’s insistence that the FBI handle a kidnapping case, Lucas makes a decision that will change the fates of Carrie, her family, Sugar, Job and the entire police force. Watch a video preview. (Yep, already renewed.)

10 pm Blue Bloods (CBS) | Danny has to figure out why the same tragedy is happening to people who don’t seem to be connected. Brian Kerwin (One Life to Live) and Beth Chamberlin (Guiding Light) guest-star.

    • Next week. Hopefully Malibu Country will be back in the fall. I don’t watch Last Man Standing but the couple episodes I’ve seen weren’t that bad so I kinda hope it gets renewed as well.
