TO WATCH

SERIES FINALE How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), 9:30 p.m., ABC Perhaps the series should have been called How to Live With Your Parents (Until Nielsen Says Move On). At least Natalie is looking like she'll be smarter than Polly.

Top Shot All-Stars, 10 p.m., History Teams must fire the Remington 1875, wishing the entire time for a Colt Single Action Army, before taking on a timed shoot with a Ruger 10/22. Two have a problem with it, proving they never learned the shooting lessons any 8-year-old country boy gets.
