On TV this week


SEASON FINALE The Carrie Diaries, 8 p.m., CW Carrie's senior prom plan is ruined when she learns from a fortune teller that she will grow up to be a self-obsessed society girl with a passel of bitter alcoholics as friends. Oh, and she can't get married.

50 Children: The Rescue Mission of Mr. and Mrs. Kraus, 9 p.m., HBO It's Holocaust Remembrance Day, so alternate between finding the human race gloriously uplifiting and savagely repugnant in this tale about a couple who travel to Nazi Germany to save Jewish children.

Monday Mornings, 10 p.m., TNT These doctors sure spend a lot of time in court over malpractice suits. And you wonder why your insurance premiums keep going up.

Revolution, 10 p.m., NBC Neville disowns his son, is called disloyal and ends up captured. So, not the brightest start to your week.


Hart of Dixie, 8 p.m., CW Why does Lavon want to make BlueBell a destination for spring break? Next thing you know, a gaggle of former Disney stars will wreak havoc on your town.

NCIS: Los Angeles, 9 p.m., CBS There's cyanide in the community water jug, killing a Navy lieutenant and making a pilot sick. And here they were, blaming the food in the mess.

The Kandi Factory, 10 p.m., Bravo Somebody at Bravo decided Kandi Burruss from The Real Housewives of Atlanta was somehow qualified to find another singing sensation. Does anyone even remember Xscape? They had like one song on the radio.

WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, 10 p.m., USA The pro wrestling organization honors Bruno Sammartino for being awesome and Donald Trump for being an even bigger cartoon than WWE's other characters.


The Middle, 8 p.m., ABC Frankie can describe herself to employers while searching for a dental-assistant job. Saying "I clean teeth good" just isn't cutting it.

Modern Family, 9 p.m., ABC Manny's dad brings his new girlfriend to visit, and because it's Paget Brewster, Gloria gets all upset. She's probably still mad that Joey and Chandler fought over her during Season 4 of Friends.

Nashville, 10 p.m., ABC Juliette is doing the tour on her own when Reyna ditches her in New York. That's probably all she wanted to do in the first place.

SERIES PREMIERE Deep South Paranormal, 10 p.m., SyFy A Southern-fried version of a ghost-hunting show. Of course, in the South, the paranormal is just normal.


SERIES PREMIERE The Killer Speaks, 10 p.m., A&E A show in which the people who killed bunches of folks talk on camera about their crimes. In case soccer moms wanted to know how sickos felt about killing someone, molesting the body and then setting it on fire.

SEASON FINALE Archer, 10 p.m., FX A Sealab 2021 crossover with Jon Hamm as the voice of the villain is perhaps the best way this season could end. Even better: There will be a next season, FX has confirmed.

SERIES PREMIERE The Moment, 10 p.m., USA Kurt Warner, who stocked shelves at a Hy-Vee in Iowa between college and his two-time NFL MVP career, helps people get a second shot at a profession they always wanted to try. Expect a lot of people from journalism to be on that show.

SEASON FINALE Legit, 10:30 p.m., FX Kate Luyben, the actress who played the prostitute Jim Jeffries took Steve's brother Billy to the pilot, got pregnant with Jim's baby in real life.So how do you make lemonade here? Have her show up pregnant with Billy's baby on the show.


SERIES PREMIERE Swamp'd!, 8 p.m., Animal Planet Ever want to know what happens at a Louisiana bayou bait shop? You're gonna find out.

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The chief marketing and customer officer for ADT learns what workers in his company are like. You mean they aren't all ex meth addicts who constantly try to upsell you on the number of sensors they can charge you for?

Fashion Star, 8 p.m., NBC The designers have to prove themselves in one of their weak areas, which no doubt will cause endless complaints. They didn't come here to improve themselves, just to wow you with their meager skills!

SERIES FINALE Spartacus: War of the Damned, 11 p.m., Starz It's time for the final battle between Spartacus and his slave army and Crassus and the Roman legions. Not to spoil anything for you, but 6,000 slaves ended up crucified along the Appian Way, so don't go expecting a happy ending.
