TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: “So You Think You
Can Dance” finale, 8-10 p.m., Fox.
A strong season ends with four
Melanie Moore and Marko Germar have
been the favorites, drawing consistent raves. But Tadd Gadduang, a
sensational hip-hopper, and Sasha Mallory have shown the ability to
Tonight, one of them wins the $250,000
prize. All of the top 20 will be back, including some – ballroom
champion Iveta Lukosiute, tapper Nick Young – who were dispatched
far too soon.
TONIGHT'S MIGHT-SEE: “Rookie Blue,”
10 p.m., ABC.
Some of TV's finest moments – from
“Twelve Angry Men” to a stunning “Chicago Hope” – have come
from forcing characters to be together.
Now “Blue” has its turn. A
seemingly drunken man has a mysterious disease; the precinct station
is quarantined. Other plot twists involve a sexy bomb technician and
a brutal robber covered in blue dye.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “Louie,”
10:30 p.m., FX.
You really don't see many TV comedies
about masturbation. Jerry Seinfeld did it once, finding light fun;
Louis C.K. tries it here in a darkly comic-serious version.
An attractive young woman is
campaigning against masturbation. From there, the show finds some
surprising twists and turns. This is not your usual, bright sitcom;
the fictional Louie – a bit weary and cynical, but a quietly caring
person – adjusts to life's setbacks.
Other choices include:
– “The Big Bang Theory,” 8 p.m.,
CBS. In a rerun, someone has hacked into Sheldon's video-game
character account. Now he and the others are obsessed with finding
who did it.
– “Rules of Engagement,” 8:30.
This rerun has Russell (David Spade) meet the sister of Timmy, his

It's time to oust another person.
– “Expedition Impossible,” 9
p.m., ABC. The six remaining teams navigate a giant Moroccan lake.
– “The Office,” 9 p.m., NBC. In a
rerun, the new boss (Will Ferrell) runs Michael's award ceremony.
– “Project Runway,” 9-10:32 p.m.,
Lifetime. Kim Kardashian is a judge because … well, maybe because
she wears clothes. The contestants prepare for an outdoor show that's
open to the public.
– “The Mentalist,” 10 p.m., CBS.
Two attempted robberies, one of them deadlu are probed.
– “Jersey Shore,” 10 p.m., MTV.
Last week's season-opener (rerunning at 9 p.m.) brought the gang to
Italy. Tonight, there are possible hook-ups between Mike and Snooki
and Pauly and Deena.
– “Wilfred,” 10 p.m., FX. Ryan
has felt it was his fault that the family dog died. Now Wilfred –
the neighbor dog who looks to Ryan like a guy in a dog suit –
challenges that. The result is typical “Wilfred” – sometimes
excessive, sometimes very funny and one time (tonight only) quite
