To watch

SEASON FINALE Survivor: Philippines, 8 p.m., CBS: We're all wondering if The Facts of Life actress Lisa Whelchel has what it takes to win it all. If this were a contest between Blair and Jo, Lisa would have been long gone by now.

Royal Pains: Off-Season Greetings, 9 p.m., USA: We're all wondering if the wedding for Evan and Paige will be enough to sustain a double-length episode. If this were an episode of Grey's Anatomy, they'd have done it over a three-week period.

SEASON FINALE Dexter, 9 p.m., Showtime: We're all wondering if LaGuerta will figure out what Dexter does in his spare time. If this were an episode of Dexter, Debra would have figured it out a year ago.

SEASON FINALE Homeland, 10 p.m., Showtime: We're all wondering if Brody will die after being caught by Carrie. If this were an episode of 24, Jack Bauer would have offed him on sight.
