To watch

Season finale: Whitney, 8 p.m., NBC: Whitney and Alex head to City Hall to get married, but then it gets called off when they realize the entire point of this one-joke series is that they aren't married. Things can't change on sitcoms, you know.

Happy Endings, 9:30 p.m., ABC: Elisha Cuthbert pretends to be a lesbian. That is all.

Season premiere: Whitechapel, 10 p.m., BBC: America Miles and Buchan head to London's East End, which we hear has quite the grisly history. Well, that's what happens after 1,000 years or so.
