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.

8 pm Shark Tank (ABC) | Back-to-back episodes: In the first hour (postponed from an earlier date), a New York man peddles his door-to-door, luggage-pick-up service. Then, in the season finale, two Wharton grads gauge interest in their translation app for international travelers, and Phineas and Ferb‘s Dr. Doofenshmirtz pitches his latest “-Inator” (watch a sneak preview). (Yep, renewed.)

8 pm Nikita (The CW) | Season finale: Amanda forces Nikita into a situation where she must choose between saving Michael or saving herself. (Yep, renewed for a short, final season.)

8 pm Undercover Boss (CBS) | Season finale: The show closes out its season by catching up with several past bosses, including Rick Tigner of Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates and Kat Cole of Cinnabon. (Renewed.)

8:30 pm Jessie (Disney Channel) | Luke test-drives giving up his stuffed koala Kenny by putting the bear in Jessie’s care. But when Kenny is accidentally damaged, Stuart performs emergency “surgery” to repair him.

  • 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.

    • My husband and I are definitely not the “target audience” for the CW since we are both over 50…but we have watched every episode of “Nikita” and enjoyed it immensely. This is the only show we’ve ever watched on the CW.

  • 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 :)!

  • 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.

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