  • 37comments

What to watch on Friday, May 20.

No offense, but it’s pretty much amazing you made it to the weekend without winding up in prison. Because you are so charming it’s illegal! (Also, your white collar crimes). Anyway, I guess it’s okay you’ve still got your freedom because now you can feast your eyes on THESE:


8pm, NBC
Friday Night Lights
Coach Taylor gets a taste of the spotlight when he receives a shout-out in a big publication, plus Julie runs into obstacles that keep her from returning to school.

SEASON 6 FINALE, 8pm, CW
Supernatural
In tonight's two-hour season finale, a demon kidnaps Ben and Lisa, then Sam will suddenly "remembers" all the terrible memories he'd been blocking. (Because all his regular memories aren't horrifying enough?)

SPECIAL, 8pm, Investigation Discovery
Children of Promise: The Legacy of Robert F. Kennedy
In this original special we'll meet the young students who've been helped by RFK's lasting legacy. True story: At first I was like, "Whoa, Investigation Discovery is airing a special that doesn't involve murder?" And then I was like, "Oh. Right." I guess the only question is, HOW MANY autopsy photos will they intersperse during this uplifting special?

8pm, Science
How It's Made
In tonight's brand new episode of television's most entrancing-yet-nerdy documentary series, we'll learn how custom steering wheels, apple pie, and paper towels are made. Face it: It's this show or going out. (I usually choose this).

SEASON 36 FINALE, 11:30pm, NBC
Saturday Night Live
Justin Timberlake hosts and Lady Gaga performs. Which is fine, but we all know the most entertaining aspect of SNL won't come until the last few weeks of summer when we find out who got hired or fired. Have a great summer, Lorne!

ORIGINAL MOVIE, 9pm, Syfy
Sinbad and the Minotaur
In tonight's Syfy Original, Sinbad steals a relic from a sorcerer and then leads his crew to a minotaur's neighborhood where they all just chill for a long weekend. Just kidding, the minotaur tries to eat everybody!

9pm, Animal Planet
My Cat From Hell
Tonight's episode features a pet cat who turns out to be feral, plus a cat with extreme mood swings. Also, there will be between eight and nine montages that attempt to make the tattooed, pierced host look cool and absolutely fail to do so. I mean, a guitar case filled with cat toys? What a rock star!
