Sean Lowe has a tough choice to make: Pick one of the women on The Bachelor, or gamble on trying for another season?


Sean Lowe has a tough choice to make: Pick one of the women on The Bachelor, or gamble on trying for another season?

On TV this week


SEASON FINALE The Bachelor, 8 p.m., ABC Sean Lowe has to pick someone tonight. And the woman he picks has to decide if she wants to move to Dallas. Tough choices, all around.

Are You Tougher than a Boy Scout?, 8 p.m., NatGeo Seeing as how we missed last week's premiere of this show, featuring grown adults trying to outdo 'tweens in feats of outdoorsiness, we'd say the answer is no.

Dallas, 9 p.m., TNT J.R. is dead for real this time, because actor Larry Hagman passed away last year. Needless to say, this turn of events on the show is very sudden.

Kings Point, 9 p.m., HBO A documentary about five senior citizens who move to Kings Point to get old and die. You know, uplifting stuff that showcases the human spirit.


SEASON PREMIERE Hell's Kitchen, 8 p.m., Fox An eleventh season of Gordon Ramsay terrorizing people who just wanted to make a living by serving a roomful of people a decent chicken Cordon bleu. Quit making them feel like failures at life, already.

SEASON FINALE The Taste, 9 p.m., ABC The first season of this Top Chef knockoff ends with someone being named, uh, the Tastiest? The Most Tasteful? The Taste of the Town?

Face Off, 9 p.m., SyFy The contestants must create Egyptian god mummies as inspired by Evil Dead, complete with Bruce Campbell in the studio to egg them on. Wait, the coolness of this challenge depends on whether they mean the original Evil Dead or the remake Evil Dead.

SERIES PREMIERE Preachers' Daughters. 10 p.m., Lifetime As if being a teenager isn't bad enough, imagine the pressure of being the teenage daughter of a preacher. Then multiply it by 1,000 by making a TV show of it and putting it on Lifetime. There are no happy stories on Lifetime.


Whitney, 8 p.m., NBC Alex and Whitney head off to his parents' lake house for some nookie, but find Alex's dad living there because his marriage is crumbling. Seems they had an argument over buying the lake house.

The Neighbors, 8:30 p.m., ABC Larry puts on a musical (written by Alan Menken, actually) and ends up injuring Dick. We hope that isn't a double entendre.

The Americans, 10 p.m., FX Philip has to meet up with an old girlfriend as part of a mission, which really torques Elizabeth. It's good to know Mother Russia comes first for these spies.

Southland, 10 p.m., TNT John wonders what life will be like when he's no longer a cop. No TV show, for one thing.


Community, 8 p.m., NBC Abed records Chang's amnesia for a documentary. We used to know what it was called, but we forgot.

Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC The recent management shakeup at Seattle Grace Mercy West has everyone on edge, but we're betting Avery is the one they're hinting wants to leave the hospital altogether. Why, just because he runs it now?

Anger Management, 9:30 p.m., FX Martin Sheen shows up as Charlie's real and fictional father and baptizes Sam without telling Charlie. That doesn't sound like something anyone, anywhere, should ever do.

Archer, 10 p.m., FX Archer and Lana have to pose as newlyweds, but end up squabbling about all sorts of things, potentially blowing their cover. You have to be married at least a year for that to set in.


Fashion Star, 8 p.m., NBC The teams have to create designs with "sex appeal." We were unaware there were any designer garments that weren't required to meet that criterion in some way.

SEASON PREMIERE Flea Market Flip, 9 p.m., HGTV Apparently showing people who shop at flea markets compete for a $5,000 prize was good enough to bring back. Good Morning America's Lara Spencer must be very popular with the flea market crowd.

The World According to Dick Cheney, 9 p.m., Showtime In case you wanted to know what the former vice president is doing in between heart surgeries.

20/20, 10 p.m., ABC David Muir replaces Chris Cuomo as cohost after Cuomo high-tailed it to CNN. Elizabeth Vargas can only sit in stunned silence.
