House: As with any long-running series, this one gets praised by some fans and criticized by others when it deviates from its formula — in this case, House (Hugh Laurie) having a light-bulb moment that solves the medical mystery of the week after several false and almost fatal starts. So it’ll be interesting to see what sort of reception the season finale, “Help Me,” gets, as it takes House and his team outside the hospital to treat victims of a disaster.
V: While it feels as though the season has only just begun in the season finale, “Red Sky,” Val’s (Lourdes Benedicto) water breaks, marking the imminent arrival of her baby with Ryan (Morris Chestnut). Erica and Tyler (Elizabeth Mitchell, Logan Huffman) are invited up to the Mothership for a dinner, and Chad (Scott Wolf) makes the devastating discovery that Anna (Morena Baccarin) has been using him.
Modern Family: Everything seems to be working against Claire’s (Julie Bowen) plans for a new family portrait. Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) gets a gig as a wedding singer, leaving Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) home alone with Lily and a wayward pigeon. Gloria and Manny (Sofia Vergara, Rico Rodriguez) go with Phil and Alex (Ty Burrell, Ariel Winter) to a Lakers game in the season finale, “Family Portrait.”
Grey’s Anatomy: Mandy Moore guest stars in the two-hour season finale, as the hospital is hit with an unprecedented crisis, and Meredith and Cristina’s (Ellen Pompeo, Sandra Oh) surgical skills are put to the test. Also, sex happens somewhere, we’re pretty sure. Patrick Dempsey, Justin Chambers and Chandra Wilson also star in “Sanctuary; Death and All His Friends.”
Friday Night Lights: It isn’t a season finale, but if you are looking to pick up a new show, Friday Night Lights is a great pick! Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) betrays Tami’s (Connie Britton) trust over a financial decision involving new team uniforms. Tensions between Vince and Luke (Michael B. Jordan, Matt Lauria) threaten the team’s chances on the field. Tim (Taylor Kitsch) helps Coach condition his players. Julie (Aimee Teegarden) doesn’t want to go to church in the new episode “In the Skin of a Lion.”
