What to Watch Friday: Touch Tells All, Nikita's Damage Control, Gender-Bending Star and More

TouchOn 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 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.”)

        • “Volcanalis” did indeed air last night. In my timezone it was pre-empted last week by Boston suspect capture news. Excellent episode by the way. Now another new ep Tuesday!

  • Nikita, woo! I can’t believe there are only 4 episodes left. This season has turned it up to eleven and the tension is almost unbearable at this point. And it better damn get renewed…

  • My only appointment TV tonight is Live at Lincoln Center’s concert of Rogers & Hammerstein’s Carousel on PBS. I saw it live last month, and I can’t wait to see it again. Beautifully performed. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys musicals.

  • Make sure you check your DVR for Grimm. Tonight is the episode that was pre-empted from last week. My DVR missed that and it was not scheduled to record. I had to set it up manually.
