WE Day / 8:00pm (13) Selena Gomez serves as host of this year’s edition of the motivational special that encourages community involvement by young people around the world. Portions of the hour were recorded at an April gathering in Inglewood, Calif., with additional participants including Oprah Winfrey, Demi Lovato, Josh Gad, James Franco, Seth Rogen, DJ Khaled, Tyrese Gibson, Hannah Simone and some of the Muppets. WE Day co-founders Craig and Marc Kielburger also appear.
Masters of Illusion / 8:00pm (50) “From the Exotic to Defying the Law of Physics” is a title that certainly describes the range of this new episode. Ed Alonzo, Barry and Stuart, Joshua Jay, Jeff McBride, Murray SawChuck, Chris Randall and Jonathan Pendragon — some of whom will be familiar to regular viewers of this series — are the performers introduced by host Dean Cain. Another episode follows.
Killjoys / 8:00pm (Syfy) A new episode called “Necropolis Now” finds John (Aaron Ashmore) squaring off in an intense confrontation with someone from his past. Meanwhile, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) is stuck in her own personal hell — specifically, a space elevator — with several insufferably pompous Qreshi, who inexplicably start dropping dead around her, one by one. Luke Macfarlane also stars.
Dark Matter / 9:00pm (Syfy) After they have an unpleasant run-in with one of their previous owners, Victor (Brendan Murray) and two other upgraded androids seek help getting off Janah-12 space station. The crew of the Raza takes them to a sanctuary, where they encounter the creator of their upgrade, who also has new information to give them regarding the pasts of Two and the Android (Melissa O’Neil, Zoie Palmer). Anthony Lemke also stars in the new episode “Built, Not Born.”
Selena Gomez hosts “WE Day” Friday on CBS.
