1) ‘New Amsterdam” season-finale, 10 p.m., NBC. You can spend all night with drama finales. It’s CW’s “The Flash” at 8 p.m., CBS’ “FBI” at 9 and a choice at 10 – CBS’ “CSI: New Orleans” or this hour, which “New Amsterdam” has led to all season. Max (Ryan Eggold) tried to be everywhere and do everything at the hospital. Now cancer puts his life in danger; as he fades, Dr. Sharpe (Freema Agyeman, shown here with Eggold) tries a creative approach. Also, Dr. Kapoor gets surprising news and Dr. Reynolds takes a big step.
2) “The Voice,” 9 p.m., NBC. It’s a big pare-down week; the schedule called for thee eight survivors to perform Monday, with half of them sent home tonight. That will leave the final four for May 20-21.
3) “Black-ish,” 9 p.m., ABC. There was no “Black-ish” last week, for a positive reason: The scheduled episode will, instead, help launch a series next season, flashing back to Bow’s childhood. Tonight, Dre frets about his kids visiting friends in the desert; also, his dad had to ponder how he treats women.
4) “Fosse/Verdon,” 10 p.m., FX. Last week found Bob Fosse tugged in three directions: He should rest … or direct a movie about bitter comedian Lenny Bruce … or direct his wife in the “Chicago” musical. Then he startled people by saying he would do both shows back-to-back. That can’t be good … as we quickly see. It’s a grim, but beautifully crafted, hour that often has Fosse (superbly played by Sam Rockwell) imagining himself in a Bruce routine.
5) “State of the Union,” 10 p.m., ET Sundance. On Monday, Tom tried too hard – dressing sharply, being polite and surprising (and upsetting) his wife. Now he goes the opposite way. It’s a strong, 10-minute episode that has us laughing one moment, feeling deeply sorry for him the next.
