What to Watch Friday: Nikita's Season-Ending Choice, Shark Tank and Boss Finales and More

NikitaOn TV this final Friday of May Sweeps: Nikita can’t catch a break – even in her final Season 3 mission, Maron‘s pop is a piece of work, Jessie bears a huge responsibility and an evil scientist braves the Shark Tank. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

(Yep, renewed.)

    I’m definitely watching ‘NIKITA’ tonight. It’s such a shame that the show is coming to a close next year/Season. IMO, The CW was the wrong network for such an awesome show as their audience tends to be young/High Schoolers who probably couldn’t care less about spies and secret agencies and whatnot.

    Nikita and Shark Tank! I’m curious if they’ll actually kill off Michael – If they did it would put Nikita in uber-Revenge mode with Alex, a la season 1, so I wouldn’t oppose it :)!

    Merlin! Can’t believe it’s the final few episodes.

  4. ollie says:

    NIKITA!!!! I wouldnt want michael dead.

  5. Mikael says:

    I still can’t wrap myself around the 6-episode final season. Do they not care about syndication, or has the minimum been lowered? 6 is such a random number. I figured maybe 12 episodes.

    Undercover Boss and Da Vinci’s Demons.

    Fridays are getting boring soon. Strike Back can’t come soon enough.

  7. Jay says:

    Well, everything I watch on Friday has ended for the summer. Time to dust off the old DVD player! If anyone’s with me on this, please speak up.

    Was the Jessie episode preempted, because it looked like last week’s episode?
