CASEY WILSON, ELIZA COUPEOn TV this Tuesday: The Voice wails for the last time this season, NCIS: Los Angeles has itself a deep sea little Christmas, Leverage screws a Scrooge and Happy Endings needs the absence of Christmas, right this very minute.

8 pm NCIS (CBS) | It’s Christmastime for Gibbs’ team, and while Abby bubbles with holiday excitment Tony gets a visit from his father (returning guest star Robert Wagner), setting the stage for our first-ever tour of DiNozzo’s apartment — “surprising” bedroom included.

9 pm The Voice (NBC) | Season finale, Part 2: It all comes down to tonight’s two-hour broadcast, when America’s favorite singer (on this network, at least) is chosen as the Season 3 winner.

9 pm Rizzoli & Isles (TNT) | Jane bumps into her old flame Casey, who shares some startling news. Elsewhere, the team works to solve the murder of a former college football player.

9 pm Happy Endings (ABC) | Upon learning that Jane’s really a Christmas baby who hates having her day overshadowed by the holiday, the gang tries to throw her a Christmas-free birthday celebration.

9:30 pm Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 (ABC) | Chloe decides a raging weekend in the Hamptons will lift June and James’ deflated spirits – but her dreams of debauchery keep getting sidelined by introspection and reflection.

10 pm Ramsay’s Christmas Cookalong (BBC America) | Chef Gordon Ramsay welcomes Baywatch‘s David Hasselhoff and British TV host Russell Grant to his home as he shares tips for a stress-free Christmas in the kitchen. (Of all the weirdness in that sentence, I think “Ramsay” and “stress-free” are the oddest pair.)

11 pm Flashpoint (ION) | Parker’s son Dean and Ed’s son Clark see more than their dads intend them to when a Team One ride-along comes across a shootout at a drug den.
