1) Basketball finals begin, 9 p.m. ET, ABC, with previews at 8 and 8:30. Sure, this might seem like a mismatch. In 23 previous years, the Toronto Raptors had never reached the finals; Steph Curry (shown here) and the Golden State Warriors – fresh from a semi-finals sweep — have been there the past four years, winning three times. But don’t be so sure: During the regular season, the Raptors had the NBA’s second-best record, trailing only the Bucks … whom they just beat, four games to two. Now they have the home-court advantage.
2) “Abby’s” finale, 9 and 9:30 p.m., NBC. On what’s already a great comedy night (led by CBS’ “Big Bang” and “Mom” reruns), here’s a bonus – two new episodes of this likable show, which won’t be back in the fall. This is at an outdoor bar, run by an ex-Marine (Natalie Morales). In the first episode, Bill offends her by breaking up a confrontation; in the second, people insist on meeting Bill’s ex-wife.
3) “Life in Pieces,” 9:30 p.m., CBS. And another comedy bonus: Alongside all those CBS reruns, this above-average show still has six new episodes. Tonight, Greg makes a classic mistake: At the hospital to see his wife and their new baby, he misplaces their daughter. Hey, we’ve all been there.
4) “Elementary,” 10 p.m., CBS. Last week’s season-opener was oddly drab, then ended with a wallop: Back in New York, Capt. Gregson had been shot. That creates a crisis for Holmes – now in London, after confessing to a New York murder he didn’t commit – and for Watson. It’s an OK episode (an improvement over the opener) that again ends with a twist.
5) “iZombie” and “In the Dark,” 8 and 9 p.m., CW. Munching the brains of a slain teen, Liv has a Ferris Bueller mentality; she’s trying to cheer up the devastated Ravi. It’s a new hour, as is “Dark”: Murphy, blind and a near-loner, feels neglected when her roommate has a busy romance.
