On TV this week


SEASON FINALE The Big Bang Theory, 8 p.m., CBS Will Leonard and Penny hook up before the kid from Roseanne leaves for three months? No. What kind of show would they have then?

SEASON FINALE House, 8 p.m., Fox A new patient has split personalities and a split body, which leaves the dear M.D. feeling outnumbered. See what we did there?

SEASON FINALE Medium, 9 p.m., NBC Allison has been dreaming about clues to a serial killer stalking Phoenix, but is under contract not to tell anyone. Isn't it more against the rules to not warn a person that someone is trying to kill them?


SEASON FINALE The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC Three hours? Isn't the idea of this show to trim away all that unsightly fat?

SEASON FINALE Fringe, 9 p.m., Fox Since the episode is titled "There's More Than One of Everything," it's obvious the writers are celebrating the fact that it likely will mean more seasons of this show.

SERIES PREMIERE The Real Housewives of New Jersey, 11 p.m., Bravo Orange County, New York and Atlanta just aren't enough, so let's throw in New Jersey, too. Although, if you've ever lived there, you have to question the wisdom behind this one.


SEASON FINALE America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW Now we know why next season is devoted to girls shorter than 5 foot 7; all the good-looking tall girls are pretty much gone.

SEASON FINALE Lie to Me, 8 p.m., Fox No matter what happens, it's been nice seeing Mekhi Phifer and Tim Roth again.

Outlaw Bikers, 9 p.m., NatGeo Really, does anyone still view motorcyclists as outlaws? Didn't that go out with TV dinners and one-income families in the '50s?


SEASON FINALE Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC Now for the answer to the question we've been asking all season: Does Katherine Heigl still have a job?

SEASON FINALE CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, 9 p.m., CBS Langston has to use deadly force for the first time in his career as a crime scene investigator. At least he'll already know what happened.

SEASON FINALE Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW What's with these TV shows? The apocalypse is always nigh just as the season is coming to a close.


SEASON FINALE Ghost Whisperer, 8 p.m., CBS Melinda gets ready for her wedding, but then some spirit comes along and ruins it. Doesn't she have a mute button on that ability?

SERIES FINALE Prison Break, 8 p.m., Fox Two more hours of breaking out of prison and we'll be done with this one. In hindsight, there wasn't much of a story to build on.

SEASON FINALE The Game, 8:30 p.m., CW Melanie wants to get married and Jason gets arrested for punching out Kelly's boyfriend, although not necessarily at the same time.
