On TV this Friday: Merlin returns for its final run of episodes, Happy Endings wraps (forever?) with babies and a bride, the Reagans are Blue indeed after tragedy and Marc Maron gets going on IFC. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Nikita (The CW) | Cyrus returns to help Nikita, Michael and Alex try to regain control of Division’s full-of-secrets black box, which is now (naturally) in Amanda’s evil little hands.

8 pm Undercover Boss (CBS) | The president of Orkin’s parent company finds out what bugs his employees as he tackles a major cockroach infestation (ick) and swarming bees.

8 pm Happy Endings (ABC) | Double-episode season finale: First up, Penny’s mom (returning guest star Megan Mullally, Will & Grace) and Dave’s dad (returning guest star Michael McKean, Laverne & Shirley) announce they’re adopting a baby together, while Max joins Brad and Jane’s tennis club. Then, Law & Order: SVU‘s Stephanie March (finally!) shows up as the third Kerkovich sister, who’s in town for her Jane-planned wedding (to Las Vegas‘ James Lesure). (Check out a preview photo!) Not yet renewed; find out its current status. (Might USA save it?)
