1) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m.. NBC. The show’s 150th episode is stuffed with guest stars – Tom Wopat as a warden, Fisher Stevens(shown here) as an ex-con working in a toy store, Al Roker as … well, Al Roker, but an intense version. The main story – a seemingly impossible suspect – is far-fetched, but intriguing. Alongside that are divided loyalties for both Dembe and Liz. It adds up to a strong and well-crafted hour.
2) “MacGyver” season-finale, 8 p.m., CBS. Mac’s Aumt Gwen (Jeri Ryan) and Codex plan to detonate a nuclear bomb and reset civilization. Now the Phoenix team tries to stop them … unaware that Mac and Riley are trying the same thing, working undercover. The stakes are high.
3) “Magnum, P.I.” season-finale, 9 and 10 p.m. Friday, CBS. The potent Friday line-up has been trimmed by the pandemic. Last week, “Blue Bloods” wrapped with 19 episodes, instead of 22; now “Magnum” ends with 20. (“MacGyver,” a mid-season replacement, shot its planned 13.) At 9 p.m., Magnum and Higgins work opposite sides of a divorce. At 10 p.m., they help Rick, whose father figure (Corben Bernsen) is out of prison and battling cancer. Also, Higgins may be sent out of the country.
4) “Great Pertformances: LA Phil 100,” 9:30-11 p.m., PBS. In 1962, one man recalled, “Los Angeles was considered a cultural desert.” Then the Los Angeles Philharmonic hired Zubin Mehta, 26, to conduct, opening the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion two years later. Two others followed and then came Esa-Pekka Salonen, 34, in 1992 and Gustavo Dudamel, 28, in 2009. All three take turns in this 100th-anniversary concert in the spectacular Disney Hall; they also combine to conduct the finale.
5) Also: Two series arrive via streaming. “Solar Opposites” (Hulu) is an animated tale of four outer-space aliens in suburbia. “The Eddy” is set in a Paris nightclub and uses original songs; it’s from director-producer Damien Chazelle, who used music brilliantly in “Whiplash” and “La La Land.”
