Happy Friday and welcome to an exciting prime time line-up you won’t want to miss. I’ll be kicking off the weekend with an episode of “Celebrity Wife Swap” at 8pm on Lifetime. In this episode is, you’ll witness the pious wife of pastor Ted Haggard as she swaps homes with the spiritually open fiancée of Gary Busey, who rejects organized religion. Am I alone in saying that the show had me at Gary Busey? I have no idea why no one has given him his own show, but this will be the closest thing to it for the time being.
FOX will be airing an all-new episode of “Enlisted” at 9pm. In tonight’s episode entitled, “Parade Duty,” Pete (Geoff Stults) tries to inspire his platoon after Cody (Keith David) puts them on an unglamorous "parade duty" assignment. Little do they know, someone is out there trying to sabotage their efforts.
Also on at 9pm is a new episode of “Grimm” on NBC. A horrible new predator creeps into Portland with its sight set on a young expectant couple who are close friends of Sgt. Wu (Reggie Lee). Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) must figure out how to deal with Wu as the investigation escalates. Meanwhile, Adalind (Claire Coffee) prepares for a special delivery while her enemies are hot on her trail.
If you’re afraid of things that go bump in the night, make sure you keep a light on when you watch “Hannibal” at 10pm on NBC. The case of the human soup becomes clearer when a victim that has escaped from the killer’s clutches washes downstream after a deadly fall, leaving valuable evidence for the BAU team to uncover. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) assists on the case, sniffing out clues of his own from of the victim’s body. Meanwhile, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) begins a plan of manipulation from within the asylum, set on proving his own innocence.
Hannibal is able to put the clues together before the BAU team, arriving at the killer’s silo and helping him to carry out his fascinating, yet deadly tableau…just not in the way the killer intended. Jack (Laurence Fishburne) tries to deal with his guilt over not protecting Will and submits to mandated therapy after Alana Bloom’s (Caroline Dhavernas) scathing report. To Jack’s surprise the counseling turns out to be beneficial. The BAU team independently arrives at the silo, finding a human tapestry of forty-seven bodies patched together, the killer hidden in plain sight. Awaiting his upcoming trial, Will is surprised by an unexpected guest—Bedelia du Maurier (Gillian Anderson)—who gives him a much-needed boost to his psyche.
If you’re interested in something totally different, Showtime is premiering “Gucci: The Director” at 8pm. Produced by James Franco and directed by Christina Voros, this is the story of Gucci under Frida Giannini: the portrait of a designer who has nurtured a deep connection to the past in order to carry forward a legacy into the future. A film in three acts, GUCCI: THE DIRECTOR spans 18 months behind the walls of the fashion house, exploring the intricacies and inspiration behind the quietly brilliant power woman whose own evolution as the creative force behind the brand is as nuanced as that of the storied Florentine house itself.
Are you caught up with “The Americans?” I finished binge watching season one again and the first two episodes of season two today. I recommend you do as well immediately! If you haven’t started season two yet, check out this video of what you can expect:
