Friday on TV: Hawaii Five-0 S.5 Premiere, Blue Bloods S.5 Premiere, The Knick & More

News & Notes

Get The Knick Soundtrack at AmazonTonight, ABC has the sixth season premiere of Shark Tank and the 37th season premiere of 20/20, CBS has the 25th season premiere of The Amazing Race, the fifth season premiere of Hawaii Five-0 and the fifth season premiere of Blue Bloods.

Amazon Prime has the entire first season of Transparent premiering today. It seems to be a critical darling, but I thought it was pretty terrible. Granted, I’ve only seen the first episode, which apparently has had a few changes made to it since then and most critics have seen the first four. I may check out a couple more episodes at some point, but I can’t imagine what changes they could’ve made to this that would make me interested in watching this show. Will you be checking it out today or over the weekend?
