What to Watch on Friday: Colbie Caillat judges on 'Platinum Hit'

Flashpoint (8pm, CBS) - A serial robber who broadcasts his heists on the internet is hunted.

Friday Night Lights - That's over, people. Sorry. But if you haven't read Grantland.com's oral history of the show, do that now.

Whale Wars (9pm, Animal Planet) - The exhausted Shepherds wrap up the initial leg of their campaign, and the Steve Irwin is tipped off to the location of the Nisshin Maru.

Haven (10pm, Syfy) - The residents of Haven have their worst fears come to life while Nathan's "trouble" seems to vanish.

Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings (10pm, IFC) - The Fuquay-Varina duo work on a commercial for a professional wrestler.

"Platinum Hit": Well, maybe more like gold

Mash together elements of "Project Runway" and "Top Chef" and you get Bravo's latest reality competition show "Platinum Hit (10 tonight)."

This time the contestants want to be songwriters, well, kinda. Like one of the guest judges, Jermaine Dupri, they already seem sick of toiling in the background and are ready for center stage.

That's why you get one guy who proclaiming himself 'a musical genius,' and another who says "I sing for the widow, I sing for the orphan." For real.
