What’s On Tonight: A Superhero Team-Up On ‘The Flash’ And A ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Finale

05.12.15 4 years ago 2 Comments

The Flash (CW, 8:00 p.m.) – Barry’s pretty desperate to catch Wells, and desperate people make stupid decisions, like trusting their arch enemies to help defeat their even greater arch enemies. The Flash enlists Captain Cold’s help to protect the meta-humans, which, obviously, doesn’t turn out well. Then again, Barry’s total incompetence when it comes to creating plans to take down the bad guys is the perfect excuse for another Arrow crossover event, so I guess we shouldn’t rag on the guy too hard.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC, 9:00 p.m.) – Last week, Coulson enacted Theta Protocol (also known as the Avengers Assemble Plan) and recommended himself for a big promotion as the new head of S.H.I.E.L.D. While he was off pulling a Tony Stark, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents weren’t playing too nice with the Inhumans at Afterlife. Tonight’s season finale sees Skye having to make the ultimate choice between her Inhuman family and her friends at S.H.I.E.L.D. while Coulson makes some sacrifices of his own.

E:60 Reports with Jeremy Schaap (ESPN, 7:00 p.m.) – E:60 takes an in-depth look at the controversial president of FIFA, Sepp Blatter.

NCIS (CBS, 8:00 p.m.) – A global terrorist group is recruiting teens online, and a deadly bombing overseas costs the team a member in the season finale.

The Voice (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) – Another semi-final round, but we’ve gotten rid of one of the contestants, so yay!

Deadliest Catch (DSC, 9:00 p.m.) – That super typhoon from last week is still raging and the crews of the captains who decided not to stay in port are probably discussing mutiny right about now.

NCIS: New Orleans (CBS, 9:00 p.m.) – The season finale focuses on finding a mole inside the agency and stopping the Broussard Syndicate.

Undateable (NBC, 9:00 p.m.) – Credit to the NBC comedy show that’s done what no other NBC comedy show has been able to do in a long time… make it to a third season on the network. It could be because this show is actually funny or because the Peacock is just really desperate. Tonight, Justin makes a bad first impression on his girlfriend’s father while Candace enters a contest to win a house.

iZombie (CW, 9:00 p.m.) – When a former sniper turned paintball instructor dies mysteriously, Liv suspects his ex-wife and her new husband are somehow involved.

Chicago Fire (NBC, 10:00 p.m.) – The Season 3 finale sees Casey still suspecting Nesbitt of shady dealings, Boden trying to bring the squad together again and Dawson receiving some life-changing news.

Tosh.0 (Comedy Central, 10:00 p.m.) – In which Tosh highlights an unusual high school football fan and demonstrates the dangers of leaf blowers.

Inside Amy Schumer (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.) – Okay, let’s preface by saying that nothing this show does will probably ever be as brilliant as last week’s 12 Angry Men sketch. That said, I have high hopes for tonight’s episode, which features Amy directing a pizza commercial and interviewing a gigolo.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Bill Clinton and Adam Sandler on Letterman; Anna Kendrick, Terry Crews and Nate Ruess on Fallon; Susan Sarandon and Brooklyn Decker on Corden; Jane Fonda and Leslie Jones on Meyers; Tom Brokaw on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart; and Reese Witherspoon and Adam Devine on Conan. Kimmel is a repeat.
