TO WATCH

SEASON FINALE The Voice, 9 p.m., NBC Who's it going to be — teenage belter Jacquie Lee or Jamaican powerhouse Tessanne Chin? As for Will Champlin, well, we're surprised he made it past the battle rounds, so he should just be happy to be here.

The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC Everyone is going to singles tonight, so they can't depend on a team member to lose 12 pounds to bail them out of a bad week.
