American Horror Story: 6 (FX, 10:00 p.m.) – The finale of American Horror Story: Roanoke is finally upon us. Lots of bloodshed, violence, twists and turns have happened throughout the season but this is Ryan Murphy we’re talking about so don’t expect things to end happily. Tonight, Lana Winters returns to investigate what happened in the fictional shows My Roanoke Nightmare and Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell by interviewing lone survivor Lee Winters. We all know Winters isn’t to be trusted – she basically bound herself to Lady Gaga’s Scathach last episode by eating a pig’s heart. What we don’t know is whether Evan Peters or Matt Bomer might make surprise cameos (that’s the running theory) or whether more people will die before the show is done.

You’re The Worst (FXX, 10:00 p.m.) – Season three of You’re the Worst has been full of big risks that have (mostly) paid off. Last week’s episode was probably the series’ most ambitious yet but here’s hoping tonight’s finale can top it. As Edgar makes a sacrifice that holds unforeseen consequences, Lindsay defends her decision to have an abortion to her husband, Paul.

The Art of More (Crackle) – We’re heading back into the high-stakes underground of New York’s fine art world with the season two premiere of Crackle’s first scripted series. Last season we met Dennis Quaid’s character – a ruthless real estate shark addicted to attention, power and money. If that stereotype sounds familiar, season two of the show blurs the line between reality and fictional television even more with the appearance of Quaid’s on-screen daughter – a blonde, ambitious mogul devoted to her dear old dad but hiding more than a few secrets of her own.

Nightcap (Pop, 8:00 p.m.) – If you didn’t even know there was a “Pop” cable channel before today, don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s really just the new name for TVGN (the now defunct TV Guide Network). Here’s why it’s important you know about Pop. The channel is premiering a new comedy series that follows Ali Wenworth, who plays a late-night TV talent booker who deals with A-list celebrities. It’s supposed to be a satirical commentary on the crazy inner-workings of late night television and with a guest list that includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Paul Rudd, Kelly Ripa, Debra Messing and Whoopi Goldberg. It looks promising.

Arrow (CW, 8:00 p.m.) – The team becomes divided when the bodies of two criminals are dropped off at the SCPD, signaling the emergence of a new vigilante. While some members think the mystery crusader should be stopped, the rest of the group isn’t so sure.

Blindspot (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) – When Jane learns about an imminent attack Sandstorm is ready to launch, she sends a covert SOS to the FBI to warn everyone.

Lethal Weapon (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) – Riggs continues to deal with the aftermath of his wife’s death (this time through his dreams), and Murtaugh goes on a “bender” when the wife and kids take a trip without him. Oh yeah, some crime-solving happens in this episode, too.

Undercover (BBC, 8:00 p.m.) – This miniseries centers on a defense lawyer trying to uncover the truth about a mishandled case while her husband goes to great lengths to hide damning facts from his own past. BBC is airing three episodes tonight in case you feel like binge-watching the show in real time. Top lawyer Maya tries to uncover a conspiracy in a murder case as her husband, Nick, works to conceal how and why they first met.

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X (CBS, 8:00 p.m.) – Individual immunity is on the line as two castmembers basically blackmail each other to gain leverage.

Elsewhere, Murray and Uncle Marvin’s mutual Knight Rider obsession has them traveling to the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day parade to see the car K.I.T.T. in person.

Speechless (ABC, 8:30 p.m.) – Apparently, Jimmy and his brother Billy don’t get along and their strained relationship only gets worse over the holidays when Billy brings his whole family to the DiMeo’s Thanksgiving dinner sans an invite.

Chicago P.D. (NBC, 9:00 p.m.) – Tonight’s two-hour episode brings about the beginning of the end for Antonio – he’s heading over to Chicago Justice whenever it premieres. While the detective is offered a new job with the law firm, the rest of the team investigates the death of a witness in a rape-and-murder case and searches for a cop killer.

Criminal Minds (CBS, 9:00 p.m.) – Three children disappear while riding bikes on the same path which harkens back to a similar unsolved case from 30 years ago. The BAU investigates whether the two disappearances are related.
