Fringe, Tina Fey on SNL, and the new Aqua Teen Hunger Force

  • 53comments

What a week! Goodbye week, go jump in a tar pit. Oh, hello, weekend! Lookin' good!


What to watch on Friday, May 6.

8pm, NBC
Friday Night Lights
More conflicts arise in the Lions locker room, plus Tami mentors a troubled teen and Luke receives an offer from TMU. Wait, does TMU offer full-ride scholarships for being DREAMY? Not sure. Let's tune in to find out!

SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, Fox
Fringe
Yikes, I'm almost afraid to get into it, but here's as vague a description as I can muster: In tonight's season finale, Peter "meets his destiny" and another team member "dies."

9pm, CW
Supernatural
In this Castiel-centric episode, we'll learn about the war in heaven and how Castiel and Raphael became enemies. But then the boys will start to question why some of the details don't add up. Ugh, logic.

SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 8pm, CBS
Flashpoint
This is going to seem very unprofessional coming from someone who writes for TV.com, but I have NEVER heard of this show. It's my fault, not Flashpoint's, I'm sure, but still: It's been on for FOUR seasons and I've never heard of it. Do you guys like it? Should I try and spotlight it each week? You tell me. Anyway, tonight's season premiere deals with the hunt of a prisoner after he escapes from a transport van, plus Ed finds out his pregnant wife has been rushed to the hospital.

This show will probably set back the cat movement by a few decades, but oh well. It's a GREAT title! In tonight's premiere, feline behaviorists need to do a bit of cat whispering when a cat comes between a woman and her boyfriend.
