Pajiba After Dark: Seen Here - A Million Times More Chemistry Than Is Exhibited On the Show

Tonight’s the season finale of “Glee” which I suspect more of you are watching than admit it. I get that, while I’ve given up any hope of appearing cool or like I have good taste in television, I understand the instinct to protect oneself from the slings and arrows that come when you admit that you’re still into (or at least regularly watching) a show that is widely regarded as terrible. It’s a strange phenomena, there’s shows I’ve been able to quit after a single bad episode, and there’s shows that I stick with even though watching them gives me no real enjoyment anymore not even as train wrecks go (looking at you, “Grey’s Anatomy”). And then there’s the people who watch so that every so-so episode they can hop online and type as fast as their little fingers can manage that the show has obviously “jumped the shark” (a phrase I’m pretty sure I’ve already mentioned that I hate with the fire of a thousand suns but I’ll mention it again because seriously; THOUSAND SUNS) just so that when everyone else starts to say that the show has gone downhill they can be all “I TOLD YOU!!!!!!1” Readers, please don’t be that person. Also, it came up again last night that some of you might not realize I’m not a dude so, seriously, I’m not a dude. Easy mistake, though. Here’s your Tuesday night TV:

8:00pm: “American Idol” on Fox

“The Biggest Loser” on NBC

“Craft in America” on PBS

“Spouse vs. House” on TLC

8:30pm: “NBA Playoffs: Miami at Chicago, Game 4” on TNT

9:00pm: “Addicted to Food” on OWN

“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” on Travel

“Braxton Family Values” on WE

“Dancing With the Stars” on ABC. Two hour 12th season finale.

“Deadliest Catch” on Discovery

“Frontline: Wikisecrets” on PBS

“Glee” on Fox. Second season finale at a special time. New York! Nationals! A completely awful resolution to Finn and Rachel because Finn and Rachel together are completely awful! (Seriously writers; stop trying to make Finn and Rachel happen. Hell, stop trying to make Finn happen. I’m sure Cory Monteith is a lovely guy but that character does nothing but pout, sing poorly, dance worse, and get yanked around by girls. He’s not interesting enough for all the screen time spent on him by a long shot.)

“Hardcore Pawn” on TruTV

“NHL Playoffs: San Jose at Vancouver, Game 5” on Versus

10:00pm: “16 and Pregnant” on MTV

“Chopped” on Food Network

“Dual Survival” on Discovery

“How the States Got Their Shapes” on History

“Independent Lens: Welcome to Shelbyville” on PBS. As a former “Simpsons” addict, my mind immediately went to the rival town of Shelbyville and wondered if this had anything to do with the show. It doesn’t. It’s a documentary about a town in Tennessee and their struggles with rapidly changing demographics. Between this and that one with the title about the queen beetle destroying Tokyo that was actually an anthropological documentary, PBS needs to start talking to these people about their titles being misleading.

“Pregnant in Heels” on Bravo. First season finale.

“Tosh.0” on Comedy Central

“Toya: A Family Affair” on BET

“The Voice” on NBC

10:30pm: “Sports Show with Norm MacDonald” on Comedy Central

Late Night Listings

“The Late Show with David Letterman” on CBS featuring Ewan McGregor, Scott Pelley, and Brad Paisley

“The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on NBC featuring Meredith Vieira, Demetri Martin, and Ben Harper

“Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on NBC featuring Ed Helms and the Cars

“Last Call with Carson Daly” on NBC featuring Mike Mills, Foster the People, and MNDR
