On TV this Friday: Disney Channel’s A.N.T. Farm and Jessie get a future shock, Magic City has loose lips, John Oliver shows off some yuk-ky guys and time’s up for 72 Hours. Here are nine programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm A.N.T. Farm (Disney Channel) | Chyna agrees to accompany a teenage Zoltan – who’s arrived via time machine – back to the ’80s to attend his prom. (Note: The episode is part of the network’s “Flash Forward Weekend,” which continues tonight with time-trippy episodes of Jessie (8:30) and Fish Hooks (9 pm) and ends Sunday.)
9 pm Would You Fall for That? (ABC) | Series premiere: The question-happy creators of What Would You Do? enlist comedians Scott Rogowsky and Sasheer Zamata to engage oblivious members of the public in psychological experiments… for fun! ABC News’ Nick Watt hosts.
9 pm Magic City (Starz) | Mercedes confides in Vera, and Stevie’s booze-and-sex-soaked deejay convention commandeers the hotel.
10 pm Continuum (Syfy) | Alec is snatched by Garza, who is on a mission from someone quite surprising.
10 pm Blue Bloods (CBS) | Repeat to Revisit: Poor Jamie is in a bad way after shooting a man who basically used him to commit suicide. At least he has guest star Annabella Sciorra (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) as the NYPD psychologist who helps him deal with the trauma. Susie Essman (Curb Your Enthusiasm) also appears.
10 pm Real Time With Bill Maher (HBO) | Eliot Spitzer is one of tonight’s guests. Gee, I wonder what they’re going to talk about?
10 pm Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC) | Scott gets guest Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) to admit that she “dabbles” in time-traveling. (Hey, it explains how she knew to hitch herself to the Twilight franchise…)
10:30 pm 72 Hours (TNT) | Season finale: The final group of adventurous prize-seekers must navigate the Rockies in order to take home $100,000. (Not yet renewed.)
11 pm John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show (Comedy Central) | Season 4 premiere: The interim Daily Show host oversees an evening featuring comics Nick Turner (Best Week Ever), Saturday Night Live writer Colin Jost and Reggie Watts (Comedy Bang! Bang!).
