Remote possibilities: On TV Friday

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

Remote possibilities: On TV Friday

Note: Depending on news developments, broadcast networks may be pre-empting some or all of their schedules Friday night for coverage.

It's been a while since I've caught an episode of NBC's "Grimm," which ironically has been one of the brighter spots on the network's schedule this season. (On Friday, NBC announced it was moving "Grimm" to 10 p.m. Tuesdays starting April 30 to replace "Ready for Love.")

But after a week of real-life grimness, an episode in which Nick (David Giuntoli) attempts to keep a volcano from burying the city of Portland might actually feel like a bit of relief.

Or not.

You may also want to check out:

-- 'Happy Endings" (8 and 8:30 p.m., 6 ABC). I'm not sure how much hope anyone can hold out for this comedy, which has a loyal, but far too small, audience. But if you're one of them, at least it appears ABC's letting it finish out the season. Which is as close as some shows ever get to a happy ending.

-- "Hemlock Grove" on Netflix. There's certainly no hurry -- the streaming service's latest series, from "Hostel's" Eli Roth, was only posted this morning, and some people are still working "House of Cards" -- but fans of werewolves, weirdness and things that go bump in the night might want be interested. Though I wouldn't subscribe to Netflix just to get it.  See my review here.
