9 pm Top Gear (History) | Adam, Tanner and Rutledge head to Iceland to try American trucks on some of the toughest winter off-roading on the planet – including atop an active volcano.

9 pm The New Normal (NBC) | Double-episode season finale: Bryan and David try to decide what to name their baby (watch a video sneak peek) and then race the clock to get married before little what’s-his-name arrives. (Not yet renewed; find out its current status.)

9:30 pm The Mindy Project (FX) | The hot guy Mindy picks up while out on a solo evening in the city? Yeah, he’s a prostitute (played by Josh Meyers, That ’70s Show). Not that that’s a deal-breaker. (Watch a video preview.)

10 pm Justified (FX) | Season 4 finale: Raylan has a last, lethal showdown with the Detroit mob, while Boyd and Ava try to keep an incriminating secret dead and buried. (Yep, just renewed!) Scroll down for this week’s Spoiler Alert!, in which Joelle Carter delivers grim finale scoop.

    I hope there’s a dance party on CougarTown!

  2. GS says:

    My inner 80’s girl is giddy about seeing Huey Lewis on DWTS tonight!

  3. TT says:

    I thought tonight’s Smash was primarily about America’s Sweetheart Jimmy getting chased around NYC by a hipster drug dealer?

    • Jen, Jill, JJ, et al. says:

      LMAO. Just goes to show how inept the NBC marketing folks are. Should we promo the broadway legend on our show about broadway? Nah. Let’s go with 20-something drug dealer.

  4. Eric says:

    The Voice
    DWTS Results
    The New Normal
    Cougar Town

  5. Andy says:

    The New Normal, The Mindy Project, and Golden Boy

  6. Pat D. says:

    I think either Boyd or Ava (or both!) are going to prison this week.

  7. Jesse says:

    I hope the new normal doesn’t get cabceled…I really like this show!!

  9. Danielle H. says:

    I never thought I’d say this, but I cannot stand Tom since he became the director. He was better as a sidelines main character. It’s sad to say the show I adored to death season 1 I won’t hardly be sad of when it is over this season, because it is definitely not coming back. I’m guessing the only reason they haven’t announced it is so that the small ratings they are getting don’t tank even more from people giving up.

  10. Joe Petitjean says:

    Splash,DWTS Results,BOP

  11. Leo says:

    The New Normal finale guys!
    Give the show and the amazing people behind it a proper send-off and keep our fingers crossed that it will get renewed!

  12. Emily says:

    JUSTIFIED FINALE. It is a tragedy that I (‘m pretty sure) I’m the first to say this here…

    • cgrealms says:

      Best written show on television. I’m really nervous that they’re going to kill Winona and/or Raylan’s unborn daughter.

    • The Beach says:

      I’m with ya, Emily. The writing,and the actors who deliver those lines, are about the best on TV. Martingale got her well-deserved Emmy but I just don’t understand how everyone else keeps being ignored.

      • Britta Unfiltered says:

        To be fair, Jeremy Davies won an Emmy last year for playing Dickie on the show. Walton Goggins and I’m pretty sure Timothy Olyphant have also both been nominated before. But, you are right. It is largely ignored. They should be cleaning up, particularly in the guest acting categories. Maybe this will be the year of Justified. You never know. They have had the best ratings they’ve ever had this season. People seem to be picking up on the fact that there’s this great show that exists and are falling in love with it. I’m going to miss the next 9 months of not having my cowboy around.

  13. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Huey Lewis and the News? Hmmm. I normally don’t watch those results shows, but Huey Lewis? He’s seriously going to be performing? Are we getting a little Power of Love? A little Back in Time? Tell me, doctor, where are we going this time? Is this the 50s or 1999?
    Oh, Justified! I’m not ready for the finale! For some reason last night I kept thinking it was Tuesday and was so excited to go home and watch it, and then I flipped on that DVR and was so upset to see it didn’t get recorded. Haha, I was so dumb. Now watch my DVR crap out on me and not record it tonight. Which will make me toss my DVR box over the balcony if that happens.

    the new normal

  15. scorpionglow says:

    Justified, of course! To be fair, I will also be DVRing Golden Boy. I’ll catch Body of Proof onDemand. I am not missing Justified.

  16. Norah says:

    Body of Proof! Really excited Luke Perry is back.

  17. BLV says:

    When did the Mindy show move to FX? And for that matter, weren’t the new Mindy episodes going to air on Thursday?
