The Big Bang Theory on CBS at 8:00pm ET. Eighth season finale. I’ve seen ads for this that are teasing some kind of big Penny/Leonard thing happening, so I’m hoping that this is the beginning of the end because matching up characters whose moment has long passed is a classic move for shows that have kind of exhausted themselves.
Bones on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Back to back new episodes. There’s really no special reason I listed this after I mentioned getting characters together long after it would make sense or be interesting in order to keep a failing show going. No reason at all.
Scandal on ABC at 9:00pm ET.
Dig on USA at 10:00pm ET. First season finale. The finale is called “Armageddon” and that seems like a high bar to set for yourself, Dig. Maybe just go with “A Really Bad Day” and leave yourself room to breathe.
Louie on FX at 10:30pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess finds that setting more reasonable goals leads to greater feelings of accomplishment in the long term.
