TV Picks: 'My Babysitter's a Vampire,' 'The Ricky Gervais Show' and 'U.S. Olympic Trials'
Television picks for Friday
Tonight in Prime Time
'My Babysitter's a Vampire'
This series follows a group of high-schoolers dealing with all the trials and tribulations of typical teenagers. Plus, there are some supernatural characters and goings-on (see title). And since it's on the Disney channel, you know it won't venture too far into Gothic or gruesome territory. 8 p.m. Friday on Disney (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
