North Woods Law, 10 p.m., Animal Planet It's moose hunting season in Maine. Unfortunately for the wardens, the only hunting they're doing is for some poor doofus moose that got stuck in the mud. They probably just free him so he can be shot by some guy 300 yards away.

SEASON FINALE King of the Nerds, 10 p.m., TBS The biggest dork is crowned. That's either the greatest moment or biggest embarrassment of their life.
