Hart of Dixie

Live from Nashville’s Music City Center, Florida Georgia Line hosts this first-ever broadcast — based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show — which honors the genre’s biggest stars based on album sales and radio airplay. Performers include Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church and breakout star Brett Eldredge.
Ahead of Tuesday’s season ender, the final four singers perform in pursuit of the Voice crown. (Who are you rooting for, TVLine readers?)
Mike & Molly
Molly might lose her big advance if she doesn’t cure her writer’s block, which Mike worries he has caused.

Bell (Hollywood Heights), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) and Gil Bellows (Ally McBeal) rounding out the cast. (The event series will wrap up on Tuesday and Wednesday.)
