Today’s Top 5 Picks


Chicago Med

8 p.m. ET on NBC – Season Finale

Dr. Charles (Oliver Platt) and his ex-wife, Caroline (recurring guest star Paula Newsome), move forward with some major plans in the Season 4 finale, “With a Brave Heart.” Elsewhere, Agent Lee (recurring guest star Anna Enger Ritch) breaks some news to Will (Nick Gehlfuss) that could put his life in danger, and Ava (Norma Kuhling) fights desperately to hold onto her failing relationship with Connor (Colin Donnell). Neither Donnell nor Kuhling will be back next season, so expect some major drama.


Whiskey Cavalier

10 p.m. ET on ABC – Season Finale

The diabolical Otlerman (Dylan Walsh) uses the life of Ray (Josh Hopkins) as leverage to force Will (Scott Foley) and his team to commit a terrorist attack for The Trust in the Season 1 finale “Czech Mate.” Meanwhile, Jai (Vir Das) helps Standish (Tyler James Williams) through a rough patch with his girlfriend, and Will and Frankie (Lauren Cohan) have an epiphany about their own relationship. Ana Ortiz also stars.



10 p.m. ET on CBS – Season Finale

Will Bravo team be forced to disband? That depressing prospect certainly looks to be in the cards in the Season 2 finale, “Never Out of the Fight,” as Cmdr. Shaw (recurring guest star Peter Jessop) indicates he’s leaning toward taking such action. Fortunately, Jason (David Boreanaz) and his team have a final mission in which they hope they can prove him wrong. Max Thieriot and Neil Brown also star.


Chicago P.D.

10 p.m. ET on NBC – Season Finale

The situation looks grim for the Intelligence team members in the Season 6 finale “Reckoning,” as Kelton’s (guest star John C. McGinley) victory in the election looks all but assured. If the corrupt politico prevails, it’s all but certain that he’ll eliminate the department that has made life more difficult for him, so Voight (Jason Beghe) and his detectives go “off book” in a last-ditch attempt to prevent that outcome.


The Butcher

10:03 p.m. ET on HISTORY – Series Premiere

Throughout human history, professional butchers have played a key role in the welfare of civilizations, particularly in earlier eras in which food-borne illnesses could and did wipe out entire communities. Now, this new — and somewhat extreme — reality competition series tests the knowledge, aptitude and strategic skills of butchers seeking to prove they are true masters of their craft. In the series premiere, four butchers first are tasked with breaking down a pig carcass using an old-school, two-handed hogsplitter. Different skills are tested in subsequent elimination rounds, until the two finalists must butcher a giant alligator.
