After nine years, this mockumentary series about the employees of the Scranton, Pa., branch of the Dunder Mifflin paper company comes to a close. The documentary that characters have been a part of finally airs, and past and present staffers gather for a wedding. Might we expect an appearance from Steve Carell’s Michael Scott? With the serious tone the series has been flirting with all season, you might want to have some tissues handy. Hourlong series finale, 9 p.m. Thursday on NBC.
In this four-part series, Peter Sagal, the witty host of NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!,” hops aboard a customized Harley-Davidson and travels across the country to discuss some of America’s constitutional debates with legal scholars, historians and public figures. Series premiere, 9 p.m. Tuesday on KCTS.
It’s been a been a wild 22nd season for this great reality competition. Contestants played bagpipes and rolled barrels in Scotland, navigated a maze in a Berlin nightclub and transported wheels of cheese — via sled — in Switzerland. We’re down to the final four teams, and I’m rooting for hockey-playing brothers Anthony and Bates Battaglia. Two-hour season finale, 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS.
This engaging drama started off kind of slow, but has become another winner for the FX network. It follows two married KGB spies (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) who are posing as suburbanites in 1980s-era Washington, D.C. Russell and Rhys are playing wonderfully against type, Noah Emmerich is great as the FBI. agent who just happens to live next door, and how delicious is it to see Emmy-winner Margo Martindale (“Justified”) as a Russian spy? And I haven’t even mentioned the great ’80s music and “technology.” Definitely one to check out. Season finale, 10 p.m. Wednesday on FX.
ABC hasn’t treated the six fast-talking friends of this Chicago-set comedy very welI. They started off on Tuesdays, disappeared for weeks, reappeared on Sundays and then settled in on Fridays. Listen up, network programmers: Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Casey Wilson are a simply a-mah-zing ensemble and deserve much better than this. Renew! Renew! Renew! (Here’s hoping it’s a) season finale at 8 p.m. Friday on ABC.
Quippy judge Michael Kors returns for the 11th season finale of this still-involving sartorial challenge. The final designers are Portland’s Michelle Lesniak Franklin, New Mexico native Patricia Michaels and Stanley Hudson of West Hollywood, Calif. My allegiances have switched many times this season, but my money’s now on Michelle. Two-hour season finale, 9 p.m. Thursday on Lifetime.
Another quriky sitcom that excels due to its top-notch cast. Jane Levy stars as Tessa Altman, a teenager who moved to suburbia from New York City with her dad (Jeremy Sisto). And while the residents of Chatswin (including Cheryl Hines, Ana Gasteyer, Alan Tudyk and Allie Grant) at first appeared to be odd/cute suburbanites, as the second season progressed, they’ve gotten downright strange. Still, this is a clever, well-written comedy, that ABC would be smart to renew. One-hour season finale 8 p.m. Wednesday on ABC.
Spring, we could walk your way forever.
