On TV Tonight, Friday, 9/05/14: Stand Up to Cancer, Brain Games and More

TV Equals Summer 2014 Friday

Our Picks

Stand Up to Cancer – 8PM *ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox
The annual Stand Up to Cancer event will be on the big four networks and several cable and premium channels tonight. In addition to raising money to combat a disease that has affected all of us in one way or another, Stand Up to Cancer also features a huge cross section of Hollywood coming together for one night before the Fall ratings bloodbath begins.

Brain Games – 9pm NatGeo
Brain teasers are my jam, and Brain Games never fails to offer up some enticing/cool new brain fact for me to ponder.

The Almighty Johnsons – 11pm Syfy
It’s time to bid the gods adieu with a two hour finale that will run until 1AM because Syfy is clearly trying to make us forget The Almighty Johnsons is a show that is happening. Never mind them though, this New Zealand show has turned out to be a lovely summer treat and I am psyched to see how season one wraps up.
