What to Watch Monday: The Closer Closes, Teen Wolf's Hairy Finale, Things Look Grimm and More

On TV this Monday: Will The Closer get her man in the series’ final hour? Plus, Teen Wolf is doggedly determined to take down Derek, Gordon Ramsay checks into Hotel Hell and the evening for NBC looks Grimm (in a good way). As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked below), here are eight programs to look out for tonight.

8 pm Hotel Hell (Fox) | The two-night premiere of Gordon Ramsay’s latest project – think Kitchen Nightmares for the hospitality biz – begins with a trip to the Juniper Hill Inn in Windsor, Vt. Check out a sneak preview here!

PREVIEW | Exclusive Stars Earn Stripes First Look: Celebs Soldier Through a ‘Real-Life Action Movie’

9 pm The Closer (TNT) | Series finale: Graham Patrick Martin (Two and a Half Men) guest-stars as a young hustler who sees what appears to be a man burying a woman in Griffith Park, prompting an investigation Brenda thinks will lead to Phillip Stroh. Brenda’s obsession with “the one that got away,” though, may threaten not only  her career but also her life. As star Kyra Sedgwick teased to TVLine in July,  “She could never get him, and that really sticks in her craw, to say the least.”

9 pm Intervention (A&E) | Season 13 of the serious downer unscripted substance-abuse program kicks off with back-to-back episodes.

PREVIEW | Major Crimes Vs. The Closer: What’s the Same? What’s Different? And Is There Still Candy?

10 pm Major Crimes (TNT) | Series premiere: Life goes on in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes division in this spin-off of The Closer. Captain Raydor (played by Mary McDonnell) is now in charge… and man, does she have her work cut out for her.

10 pm Grimm (NBC) | Season 2 premiere: Nick, Monroe and the gang are back! Nick copes with the return of his presumed-dead mom while racing to find a cure for comatose Juliette. Watch a Season 1 recap here, then press PLAY below to see the cast preview the wild new season. (P.S. Grimm originals will also air the following three Mondays, before the show settles back into its regular Fridays-at-9 time slot.)

10 pm Teen Wolf (MTV) | Season 2 finale: A death on the lacrosse field forces Scott and his pals to figure out Gerard’s master plan, while Derek plots to take him down in his own way.

10 pm Alphas (Syfy) | Nina’s breakdown and subsequent crime spree sets the team in motion. Need another nudge? This is the episode with the “intense” kiss between Nina and Rachel (watch it here).

10:30 Get to Work (Sundance) | Series premiere: An innovative re-employment program in San Diego is the focus of this new unscripted drama, which follows students from all walks of life as they go through unemployment bootcamp.

    I really hope Jackson isn’t dead on Teen Wolf.

  2. Patti says:

    I’ll be watching Warehouse 13 and Grimm

  3. Leah says:

    I can’t believe we’ve reached the end of The Closer. I can’t wait to watch it, and see how on Earth Kyra/Brenda Leigh leaves. It seems impossible. In honour I am re-watching the earlier seasons and I hope Major Crimes is just as good – it should be, but there’s going to be a massive hole where Brenda Leigh was, and who knows if Raydor can fill it…

    • Carm says:

      I can’t wait to watch it to see what happens with Brenda (especially since Fritz is still around on Major Crimes), and with Gabriel since he will not be on Major Crimes.

  4. Nick says:

    Hell’s Kitchen Alphas Grimm & stars earn stripes

  5. iShivi says:

    TEEN WOLF FINALE!!! After tonight, Mondays won’t ever be the same. On a brighter note, totally excited that Grimm is back!

  6. Fiona says:

    Miss you already, Brenda Lea Johnson 😢😢😢

  7. david says:

    Its gonna be sad to watch the closer but I doubt shell die, she will probably quit for a different job offer or get fired

  8. Simon Jester says:

    Bunheads, Warehouse 13, Alphas, The Closer, Major Crimes. Aaarrgghhh, too much TV, not enough time!

  9. Roger says:

    Warehouse, Teen Wolf, Alpha and Degrassi for me.

  10. Brandy says:


  11. Juliab. says:

    The Closer!!!

  12. Velvet says:

    Warehouse 13
    Bizarre Foods America
    Mythbusters Jawsome Shark Special (maybe)

  13. I want Monroe to eat Sergeant Wu. Do it for Haywire.

  14. Velvet says:

    Thank the gods Grimm no longer interferes with Supernatural and Fringe.

  15. Velvet says:

    I have absolutely no plan to ever watch Major Crimes.

    • Steve T says:

      I agree. I never missed The Closer. I like Mary McDonnell as an actress. But I really dislike the Capt Raydor character.

  16. Templar says:

    Bunheads and Grimm.

  17. theresa says:

    Watching Warehouse 13 & Alphas. DVR Grimm.

  18. CJ says:

    Bunheads for me.

  19. Eliza says:

    Yay, Grimm is back!!

  20. GD says:

    Teen Wolf Finale. Sad it is going so soon. Happy to have heard it is getting a full season order for season 3. I hope Jackson is not dead dead.
    Never got into Grimm. I tried, so won’t be watching season 2. But they should get good numbers because they are back so early for the season. No competition.
    I’ll also be watching Stars Earn Stripes.

  21. Justin says:

    Warehouse 13, Alphas, The Closer, Major Crimes and Grimm are on my must-watch list tonight. Lots of great tv!

  22. Mary says:


  23. Ashley says:

    I have Hulu Plus, so I just watched Season 1 of Grimm last week. It is so well done. I am stoked for Season two starting tonight.

  24. nick1372 says:

    I’m watching Hotel Hell & Hell’s Kitchen.

    I was just going to type about Perception, but it’s not on this week. :-(

  25. Templar says:

    OK rant coming …….. Bunheads has pushed it too far. It’s become a high/low project. Gilmore Girls being the $125,000 version, and Bunheads being the cheap copy. Town meeting with the Taylor Dosey clone. Kirk selling coffee [he always wanted to be behind the counter], Gypsy being Gypsy, Emily being Emily, the clumsy teen liking the boy and embarrassing herself [see Lane and the band guy with great hair]. ASP is just re-cycling. It’s only a matter of time before Scott Patterson shows up and he’s way too hot for Sutton. I’m done.

  26. Pia says:

    Nooo I missed Grimm because I’m in Arizona and there’s no Daylight Saving Time!
