    If there's one thing we've learned over the last two months, it's that unprecedented times call for unprecedented TV programming. Tonight is no exception, with CBS airing a Cedric the Entertainer-hosted special that presents some of the best viral videos to emerge from the worldwide quarantine, and The Blacklist turning to animation to fill in the gaps of its half-finished season finale. Also today: Hulu rewrites the life of Catherine the Great, Showtime turns the spotlight on a town that's raised more than its fair share of pro basketball players, and Justin Willman is back with Season 3 of his Netflix series Magic For Humans. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Friday:
