On TV this Friday: Touch spills its secrets, the Undercover Boss hits the gym, Nikita enters crisis mode and Fashion Star dabbles in androgyny. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Nikita (The CW) | In the aftermath of the tragedy at Division, a destroyed Alex reverts to her old (read: violent) ways while Nikita and Michael quickly try to salvage what they can before the President realizes the extent of the damage.
8 pm Undercover Boss (CBS) | Disguised Retro Fitness CEO Eric Casaburi discovers one employee who hates customers and another who credits the fitness-center franchise with a major lifestyle change.
8 pm Fashion Star (NBC) | The contestants must design a garment, then alter it for both a man and a woman. (Tilda Swinton’s not guest-judging this one? Bummer.)
8 pm Happy Endings (ABC) | In back-to-back episodes, Penny rebounds from some bad news by having an affair with the Car Czar (returning guest star Rob Corddry), and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash) reprises his role as the ex-roommate whose life Max ruined. (Note: These episodes were pre-empted last week.)
9 pm Touch (Fox) | Martin’s attempt to come clean to a skeptical Det. Lange winds up escalating the investigation – and results in an APB on a key player. Elsewhere, Jake leads Avram to a possible member of the Righteous 36.
9 pm Vegas (CBS) | A suspect in a murder investigation takes Mia hostage, and Savino plans to play dirty with Gainsley when The Tumbleweed reopens.
9 pm Da Vinci’s Demons (Starz) | An outbreak of demonic possession at a convent is blamed on the Medicis, but Leonardo suspects there’s a rational explanation.
9 pm Shark Tank (ABC) | A Massachusetts mother-and-daughter team hope the sharks will bite at their homemade cupcake-in-a-jar business. (If I were on that panel, ladies, you’d have me at “cupcake.”)
10 pm Blue Bloods (CBS) | Danny encounters a disoriented man covered in blood who has no recollection of the previous night’s events; Jamie gets in trouble after helping a fellow officer cover his intoxication.
10 pm XIII: The Series (Reelz) | XIII and Amos try to discover the truth behind the bombing of the Synequanon HQ.
