On TV this Friday: Strike Back returns for another mission, the Magic wears off for a Starz drama, Clinton and Stacy are back with advice on What Not to Wear and MTV rewrites Hills-tory. Here are eight programs to keep on your radar.
11:30 am The Hills (MTV) | If you weren’t a fan of the cryptic way MTV’s allegedly unscripted show about pretty young things ended a few years back, tune in as the music channel airs an alternate version of the series finale, as part of its RetroMTVBrunch programming.
8:30 pm Jessie (Disney Channel) | Jessie tricks Zuri into thinking she’s from outer space, while Emma develops an overzealous nose for news as a reporter for the school TV station.
9 pm Magic City (Starz) | Series finale: Ike and Ben’s future hangs on the outcome of the gambling bill. Meanwhile, Klein weighs Ike’s offer to get The Butcher, and Stevie and Lily face the end. (The swan song will be immediately followed by a special preview of the network’s new period drama The White Queen, which officially premieres on Saturday.)
10 pm Strike Back (Cinemax) | Season 3 premiere: Scott and Stonebridge are called back to action after a fellow Section 20 member dies while pursuing a terrorist in Beirut, and a lead on one of the bad guy’s associates sends them deep into the jungles of Colombia. (Get a sneak peek.)
10 pm Continuum (Syfy) | The shadowy group attempts to abduct Kiera, forcing her to hide among Julian’s followers.
10 pm What Not to Wear (TLC) | Midseason premiere: The long-running sartorial series begins its final run of episodes with Stacy and Clinton helping three fashion-challenged friends at the same time.
