Drunk History (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.) — The first season finale goes out with a bang, as Jake Johnson and Chris Parnel take up The Alamo.

Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 9 p.m.) — I understand that watching the show in the wake of Lee Thompson Young’s suicide has been bittersweet for its fans. It’s always weird to watch new episodes of televison shows filmed before the actor has died, and I imagine that’s doubly so when it’s an actor who took his own life.

Suits (USA Network, 10 p.m.) — Besides the underwhelming reveal behind the can opener gag, last week’s episode of Suits was easily the best of the season. Hopefully, it continues the momentum tonight. Speaking of which, inspired by a commenter here, General Fatassery, I had a little fun earlier today reviewing Suits with the same vitriol many apply to Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom.

Who Do You Think You Are? (TLC, 10 p.m.) — This seems like such a weird self-congratulatory show. Why would we want to watch celebrities research their own genealogy? In tonight’s episode, Cindy Crawford attempts to find out if she’s related to British royalty, because no one is ever just related to a humble carpenter who busted ass all his life to put food on the damn table.

Whose Line Is It Anyway (CW, 8 p.m.) — I like the new version of this show a lot, except for the part where they bring in a CW actor with no improvisational skills in order to promote another CW show that I have no interest in.

LATE NIGHT LISTINGS: It’s a thin week in late night, as everyone is in reruns except for Leno and Letterman. Letterman has Anderson Cooper and Olivia Munn, while Leno has Josh Duhamel and J.B. Smoove.
