Television top choices for Friday TV.
Tonight in Prime Time
"Megastunts — Highwire Over Niagara Falls — Live!"
Not really "live" for viewers here in the Northwest (it's live on the East Coast) but this title-says-it-all special features Nik Wallenda (a seventh-generation member of the Great Wallendas family circus) traversing Horseshoe Falls on a tightrope wire. It's a feat that's been banned since 1890. The special is anchored by Josh Elliott and Hanna Storm. "Countdown to Niagara" preview at 8 p.m., "Megastunts" begins at 9 p.m. Friday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
