  • 87comments

Baby, it's warm outside! But guess what, baby, it's pretty darn warm INSIDE also, and that's because your TV's throwing off some white-hot heat of watchability! Decent things are on, is what I'm saying. Baby, lookit:

What to watch on Friday, June 1...

SERIES FINALE, 8pm, NBC
Best Friends Forever
It's goodbye forever to Best Friends Forever, as NBC closes out another of its half-hearted midseason launches with a Friday night two-fer. In the first episode "Hey Nonny Nonny," Jessica gets jealous when Lennon spends too much time with an old friend. And in the finale episode "Fatal Blow Out," the gals head to Atlantic City for a convention and Jessica ends up questioning her feelings for Rav. (Maybe don't get too emotionally invested in their relationship, dear viewer.)

9pm, USA
Fairly Legal
In "Borderline," Kate and Ben haul their briefs to Lake Tahoe for a bit of mediation but end up getting involved in an unsolved murder! Meanwhile, Justin needs Lauren's help on a case that could very well damage his political future. Who's throwin' acid on your political future, Justin?

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, Starz
Magic City
All the plotlines boil over in "Time and Tide," Magic City's first season finale. Tune in tonight to find out what happens when: Klein gets his hands on Judi Silver; Lily and Stevie's affair gets dangerous; and Ike finds himself at a crossroads. You'll get through it, Ike. We ALL have to deal with proverbial season finales sometimes.

SEASON 15 FINALE, 9pm, FX
The Ultimate Fighter Live
Your favorite live Friday night MMA reality show closes out another season tonight when it crowns its Season 15 champion following a climactic bout in Las Vegas. Who will win? Who will bleed a lot? Both questions will be answered!

Meanwhile, Stacy seeks out a relationship guru for some much-needed advice. Or something? BRB lemme call my aunt and get the low-down on this show.

SEASON 2 FINALE, 9pm, HBO
Game of Thrones
Oh man, this season. Remember what happened last week? I do: "Blackwater" was a great episode! Tonight "Valar Morghulis" closes out Season 2 with 70 minutes of bad times: Luwin has questionable advice for Theon while on the brink of war; Arya receives a gift of some kind from noted BAMF Jaqen; Jon Snow must survive some kind of test for Qhorin; Daenerys deals with the missing dragon situation; and Brienne puts together a vaudeville act with Jaime. (I think I'm joking on that last one, but who knows!)

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 9pm, NBC

We'll FINALLY find out which of the past year's movies have been good or bad tonight when MTV viewers weigh in with their long-awaited opinions! Host Russell Brand will be joined by musical guest Fun. in awarding a metric ton of gold-plated popcorn to such movies as The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, The Help, and Hunger Potter. (Just kidding that is not a movie, but hold up: I think I just had an idea for Harry Potter 9. Call me, J.K. Rowling, and HURRY.)

SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 9pm, A&E;
The Glades
Tonight A&E; briefly retires its slate of sorrrrrta embarrassing reality shows for a double dose of legitimately decent scripted dramas! First up, The Glades returns for a third season and finds its main charmer dealing a group of overzealous UFO enthusiasts who involve themselves in a man's death. Meanwhile Callie tries to find a job. Ripped from the headlines!

SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, A&E;
Longmire
A&E; premieres their newest drama tonight in Longmire, a series about a crabby small-town sheriff who deals with colorful locals without the benefit of looking like Timothy Olyphant. But he DOES get to call Katee Sackhoff a deputy, so he's got that going for him. In tonight's premiere, the titular Wyoming sheriff attempts to run for re-election against an upstart while also trying to cope with his wife's death.

SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 11pm, MTV
Teen Wolf
Yay!! Our teen supernatural methadone has arrived in the form of Teen Wolf Season 2! Tonight's premiere involves [SPOILERS for those who haven't seen Season 1] the disappearance of Lydia from the hospital following her season-ending run-in with the alpha. The former alpha, because tonight the new alpha will be taking center stage. Plus towel scenes, I'm guessing. Welcome back, Teen Wolf!
