Friday TV Picks: ‘Grimm’ on NBC
TV picks for Friday, March 15, 2013, include “Grimm” on NBC, “Last Man Standing” on ABC and “Undercover Boss” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
Friday nights are a lot creepier now that this filmed-in-Portland series about Det. Nick Burkhardt (a homicide detective with an interesting ancestry) is back from a long break. Half the fun for Northwesterners is spotting local actors when they pop up in featured roles, and I hear tonight’s episode (involving a group of the mythical Wesen robbing banks) will feature such an appearance. 9 p.m. Friday on NBC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
