Smallville's series finale, Ed Helms on SNL, and Game of Thrones

What to watch on Friday, May 13.

Happy Friday the 13th! Today is VERY creepy, you guys. After you spend the day avoiding walking under ladders or looking black cats in the eye or conjuring demons for the purposes of retribution against the teens who ran over your boy, you MIGHT want to just stay in tonight and enjoy the following EXTRA SPOOKY TV lineup:


8pm, NBC
Friday Night Lights
Isn't it creepy how GREAT this show is? Okay, so this show is the opposite of creepy, but it'll always be the highlight of my Fridays. Tonight the East Dillon lions hit the road for an away game and Eric gives Vince a bit of college recruitment guidance.

SERIES FINALE, 8pm, CW
Smallville
Who knew Superman's early years were so numerous? The CW did, that's who. After ten long years, Clark Kent finally becomes a man (of steel, get it?) in tonight's two-hour series finale.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, CBS
Blue Bloods
Tonight's episode caps off a strong first season as Frank infiltrates the Blue Templar secret police society after some dirty cops get exposed during a drug raid.

SEASON 2 FINALE, 10pm, Animal Planet
The Haunted
Okay, NOW we're getting spooky! In tonight's episode of television's finest animal-themed haunting series (which, frustratingly enough, only RARELY involves animal ghosts), a paranormal team will investigate the strange happenings involving a murder at a historic inn.

ORIGINAL SPECIALS, 9pm & 12am, Investigation Discovery
The Pig Farm & Lore: Deadly Obsession
Leave it to Investigation Discovery to really cash in on today's creepy tradition: TWO original documentaries about real-life horror stories. In The Pig Farm, we'll learn all about the gruesome crimes of Robert "Willie" Pickton. Then, after a choice rerun of American Occult (the Satanic hookers episode!!), stay tuned for Lore: Deadly Obsession, which follows the terrifying rampage of Richard Trenton Chase, the "Vampire of Sacramento." Oh, Investigation Discovery, you really know how to do us RIGHT.

Did anyone see smallville season 10 the final,i expecting much from it but to you the i have so disappointed by it with all the hype of season 9 i thought the final season blow my mind away but it was the opposite

i think that all shows should get 1 & 1/2 seasons... gives them time to develop a following and at the mid point of season 2, if not enough ratings, then cancel them and allow for tying up loose ends for the audience/fans... that way everyone would know to expect growth in first half of 2nd season or else andd if else, would get conclusion properly... would make the fans not so angry for getting #@itted out of closure, because we fans would get proper ending to the series... think about it broadcast network execs.... you guys are alienating your bread and butter with all these partial 1st seasons and changing the times off our shows then @@itcanning them after 8 or 12 episodes... crazy to expect us to invest ourselves this way over and over again... have some respect for us and you\'ll develop a BRAND loyalty base (loyal back to you for you considering US in your decisions) and really, we\'d all know what to expect, even the actors and writers, but ESP the fans??!! think about it..

was great!!! tv shows usually take time to develop their characters and hit their stride... almost all the great shows took time to gather a following... this show has/had alot of potential, with great actors and plot... if a network out there picked up farscape, firefly, dark angel, the event, sgu, dr who, being human (uk version), true blood, warehouse 13, dollhouse and dexter... they'd be #1 network in three months... guaranteed... ANYONE AGREE??? SAY HELL YES TO ORIONWAY's premise!!!!

Still say that the WB missed a major promotional gold mind, have Supernatural's season finally on Friday the 13, you know after all it is called Supernatural, if there ever was a date to air it that is it. The could have put Smallville off till next friday. Yet another no brainer that the people in control of televison for some reason cant seem to see.

10 years already? Now I feel old! How many series survive that long and get a proper series ending? So Smallville for me, I must see the end of an era in TV history. The second Friday show is Camelot. On Saturday there's nothing, on Sunday there's Game of Thrones, The Killing and Breakout Kings.

Smallville will be the show to watch tonight. Although I hope it's exciting but I sort of expect it to be as slow and boring as many of the episodes lately. After all, there's a wedding. Doctor Who tomorrow should be a good one; Niel Gaiman wrote it.

Ed Helms is hilarious, seems like a really nice guy too. I'll also be watching Smallville even though I stopped somewhere in season 5. Other than that, Blue Bloods, The Killing, Breakout Kings and the animated shows on Sunday.

You guys do realise that the cliffhanger for Smallville was that Lois wouldn't marry Clark, right? Nice picture ;) I mean, I knew, but maybe there is someone out there who still believed it could be so

Smallville is ending today...this is really a sad day for all of us Smallville fans. I've been watching this show since 2001, never missed an episode. I can't believe 10 years of Clark Kent adventures in Smallville are ending tonight!
