Jenny’s TV Guide: Friday June 6

Friday marks the season finale of Man vs Wild on Discovery at 9/8c. Bear travels to the Land of Ice, where he meets the Tuvans, yak herders descended from Genghis Khan, who have lived in Siberia for 20,000 years.

It’s also the series premiere of Charlie Jade on SciFi at 8/7c. Charlie Jade (Jeffrey Pierce, The Others, West Wing, JAG) is a rogue private detective in a world dominated by greedy multinational corporations. When Charlie sees the corpse of a beautiful young woman, he realizes she embodies the impossible: She has no identity, something inconceivable in Charlie’s world. While tracking her suspected killer, the trail leads Charlie to a secret desert facility. A massive explosion propels him into a parallel universe that seduces him with its similarities and baffles him with its differences. Charlie is soon drawn into a conflict that not only involves his home universe and the one he now inhabits but also includes a third universe. This one is pristine and pacifist with unsuspected terror at its heart.

Also check out the season premiere of Meerkat Manor: The Next Generation on Animal Planet at 9/8c. After the death of the matriarch last season, the meerkat family split into 2 clans, each headed by daughters of Flower, the previous leader. This season, Rocket Dog and Maybelline must live within the rather large shadow of their late mother, Flower, and there’s very little room in the Kalahari for both sisters’ clans. Not only do the meerkats face predators, harsh desert weather and archenemies the Commandos-there’s dissent in their ranks. Without a solid leader to unify them, they face their toughest survival threat yet-each other.

Just a reminder, season 5 of The Bachelor on VH1 airs from 12PM/11AMc through 7/6c tonight!
