To watch

SEASON FINALE The Good Wife, 9 p.m., CBS All sorts of things are going down, with Louis and Patti teaming up to fight Lockhart & Gardner, Alicia and Peter fending off Mike Kresteva and Kalinda's past being revealed. Well, being hinted at, anyway.

TV Land Awards, 9 p.m., TV Land Kelly Ripa hosts a bunch of awards for TV shows we used to watch as kids, like In Living Color and Pee-wee's Playhouse. Too bad it doesn't start at 7 p.m. so we can watch it in bed.
