TO WATCH

SEASON FINALE Suburgatory, 8 p.m., ABC Two episodes wrap this season, with George booting Tessa, who then moves out. As if that's a real problem. Isn't that what you wanted?

Ghost Hunters, 9 p.m., SyFy The first of six new episodes, in which TAPS heads to Shreveport, La., to see if there are ghosts there. You'd think that would be Southern Paranormal Investigators' job.
