SEASON FINALE Chuck, 8 p.m., NBC Chuck needs his wedding party to stop Vivian from ruining the party. Well, who invited her in the first place?

SEASON FINALE Mad Love, 8:30 p.m., CBS Are Ben and Kate going to finally hook up? Given Sarah Chalke's track record on Scrubs, we'd say not yet.

SEASON PREMIERE The Real Housewives of New Jersey, 9 p.m., Bravo Two of Theresa's relatives join the cast. Because there aren't enough cackling middle-aged women on this show already, see.

SEASON FINALE NCIS, 8 p.m., CBS Finally, they find the Port-to-Port killer. What are the chances it was Mark Harmon this whole time?

SEASON FINALE One Tree Hill, 8 p.m., CW Chase is off to the Air Force, upsetting Chuck and Alex. They really wanted him around when Karen's Cafe reopened.

SEASON FINALE Criminal Minds, 9 p.m., CBS A.J. Cook's new two-year deal kicks in, so her character J.J. is back starting tonight. Then you'll have to wait until next season to see her again.

SEASON FINALE Rules of Engagement, 8:30 p.m., CBS Russell books a trip on a cruise thinking it's full of "red hot" chicks, only to find out it's full of women over the age of 50. Well, it depends on whether you catch them at happy hour or not.

SEASON FINALE Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC Meredith comes clean about screwing up the clinical trial. At least Derek can't just tear up the Post-It anymore. Oh, and we're pretty sure Teddy is moving to Germany after the chief resident is announced.

SEASON FINALE Bones, 9 p.m., Fox A body is found in the pinsetter at a bowling alley. Boy, he really struck out.
