Today’s Top 5 Picks


Grey’s Anatomy

8 p.m. ET on ABC – Season Finale

While a blanket of thick fog creeps its way across Seattle, the Grey Sloan medical staff tries to navigate through a pea soup of personal problems in “Jump Into the Fog,” the Season 15 finale. Meredith and Alex (Ellen Pompeo, Justin Chambers) team up to try to save young Gus (guest star Christian Ganiere), while elsewhere, Levi (Jake Borelli) tries to get the struggling Nico (Alex Landi) to calm down and see things more sensibly.


The Big Bang Theory

8 p.m. ET on CBS – Series Finale

This blockbuster sitcom closes out its 12-season run with a one-hour finale. CBS is holding back details, but longtime pals Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper (Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons) — who have spent most of their adult lives living either together or within a few yards of each other — may be heading in different directions with their lives. Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik also star. A half-hour retrospective special also airs later this evening.


Station 19

9:01 p.m. ET on ABC – Season Finale

The firehouse team members pack their gear for Los Angeles, where they will join other firefighters battling a deadly blaze burning totally out of control in the Season 2 finale, “Into the Wildfire.” While they’re evacuating residents, Ben (Jason George) meets a guy named Terry (guest star Patrick Duffy), who moves Ben to make a totally spontaneous decision that changes both their lives. Meanwhile, Andy and Sullivan (Jaina Lee Ortiz, Boris Kodjoe) continue to explore their mutual attraction.


Young Sheldon

9:01 p.m. ET on CBS – Season Finale

Sheldon (Iain Armitage) is a lad of decidedly specialized interests, so he doesn’t understand all the raised eyebrows that greet him as he invites his entire school to a party to await the Nobel Prize announcements in the Season 2 finale, “A Swedish Science Thing and the Equation for Toast.” Elsewhere, Georgie (Montana Jordan) has a stand-off with his dad (Lance Barber) over the former’s fervent wish to have cable TV, and Meemaw (Annie Potts) learns more about Dr. Sturgis’ (Wallace Shawn) past.


Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

10 p.m. ET on NBC – Season Finale

The Season 20 finale of this venerable police procedural, “End Game,” opens with a teenager whose corpse is found in the Hudson River. A frustrated Lt. Benson (Mariska Hargitay) trusts her strong intuition that NYPD Attorney Rob Miller (recurring guest star Titus Welliver) is behind this unexplained death, but she has no way of proving that. Although the case hinges only on circumstantial evidence, however, Assistant District Attorney Stone (Philip Winchester) decides to take the case to court before Miller ruins even more lives. Callie Thorne also guest stars.
