What’s On Tonight: ‘Texas Rising’ Comes To An End And The Stanley Cup Finals Continue

Texas Rising (HIST, 9:00 p.m.) — The historical miniseries that managed to completely screw up history — but still be pretty entertaining — is finally ending tonight. The series finale sees the Texas Rangers celebrate their victory and Sam Houston consider taking on a leading role in the new territory. All of the terrible fact-checking aside, Bill Paxton, you will be missed.

Stanley Cup Final: Game 6: Lightning at Blackhawks (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) — None of this is relevant to me because the only sport I’m currently concerned with is U.S. Women’s Soccer, but in the hockey-verse, Chicago is apparently a pretty good team, and they’re looking to continue the winning streak they started last week against Tampa Bay in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Congratulations, hockey fans. It looks like you’ll have a good game.

So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) — Still not sure how I feel about this Stage vs. Street battle the show is cooking up, but I’m totally feeling the new matchmaking duo that is Jason Derulo and Paula Abdul.

The Bachelorette (ABC, 8:00 p.m.) — On this episode of “Desperate Single Woman Goes On National TV To Make Out With A Bunch Of Random Dudes, Propose To One And Then Break Off Her Engagement Three Weeks Later,” Kaitlyn kayaks around San Antonio with one suitor, attends a two-step dance competition with another, and has 10 fame-hungry men compose terrible mariachi serenades all in the name of love.

The Fosters (ABC Fam, 8:00 p.m.) — Stef and Lena host a Father’s Day brunch for Mike, and Jude unfortunately takes that as a sign to invite his dad — you know, the one who abandoned him and is responsible for the death of Jude and Callie’s mom — to the event.

WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8:00 p.m.) — The Celtic Warrior has his eyes set on Seth Rollins, and Brock Lesnar might be making a comeback.

Major Crimes (TNT, 9:00 p.m.) — A celebrity chef, a psychiatrist and a lawyer are all under investigation after a high-speed car chase ends with a dead body popping up out of the trunk. (Man, I hate when that happens.)

Murder in the First (TNT, 10:00 p.m.) — Terry gets a promotion and a manhunt for a missing shooter proves tricky.

The Making of the Mob: New York (AMC, 10:00 p.m.) — The premiere of this docudrama chronicling the roots of organized crime in America focuses on the underground activity in New York City as Charles “Lucky” Luciano teams up with Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel. I don’t recognize the names of these men, but I’m assuming they were hot stuff in the Mob world at some point.

UnReal (LIFE, 10:00 p.m.) — If watching The Bachelorette makes you physically ill, wait a couple of hours and watch this show instead. It’s Lifetime at its best — by that, I mean sub par acting, catty bitch fights and heightened drama — and it does a pretty good job of mock-exposing reality dating shows like the ones on ABC. Tonight, Rachel is forced to ask her mother for financial support which ends up seriously messing with her mental well-being, and Adam’s best friend chooses the three ladies who will go on a date with the lucky bachelor.

The Whispers (ABC, 10:00 p.m.) — “John Doe takes Dr. Benavidez hostage, and a mysterious entity leads him to a secret location, while Claire and Wes dig further into John Doe’s past, where they find clues to his next target.” (And that may be the most vague episode description you’ll ever read.)

LATE NIGHT LISTINGS: Aziz Ansari, Taylor Schilling and Adam Lambert on Fallon; Martha Stewart and Laura Prepon on Meyers; Melora Hardin, Amy Landecker and Jack Antonoff on Corden; Judd Apatow on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart; and Jeff Garlin and Angie Harmon on Conan. Kimmel is a repeat.
