1) “Modern Family” (shown here) series finale, 9 and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, ABC, with an overview at 8. One of TV’s great shows departs after 11 seasons and 22 Emmys, including five for best comedy. The finale finds Mitchell and Cam settling into their lives – a new house and a new baby they’ve adopted … just as they adopted Lily, 11 years earlier. Meanwhile, Phil and Claire decide that one of the kids must move out. Also, Gloria is successful at work, but frets that her husband and son don’t really need her.
2) “Will & Grace,” 9 p.m. Thursday, NBC. Speaking of classic comedies, two merge when this show’s actors replicate Lucille Ball’s best bits. Megan Mullally’s grape-stomping scene is only so-so, but Sean Hayes’ candy-assembly-line one is terrific … and Debra Messing is a delight when tackling the Vitameatavegamin commercial. Eric McCormack plays Ricky in all three bits, then gets to sing at the end. This is comedy at its best – big and broad and directed by the comedy master, James Burrows.
3) “Manifest” season-finale, 10:01 p.m today., NBC. Last week, Michaela and Zeke had a hurry-up wedding, shortly before his “death date,” which had been signaled by a supernatural force. As he faded, escapees kidnapped her nephew Cal – who, like his dad and aunt, survived a plane flight that was suspended in time for five years. The result is a tense story, spiced by other-worldly weirdness. The plot is fairly exciting, but it’s hindered by soap-style writing that creates wildly overwrought reactions.
4) “Schitt’s Creek” series finale, 8 p.m. Tuesday, Pop, rerunning at 10. A small show on a tiny network has drawn loyal fans, fond reviews and an Emmy nomination for best comedy. Last week, key questions were resolved: Moira and Johnny will move to California, where her show has been rebooted … Alexis moves to New York … David and Patrick are staying; now it’s their wedding. An overview is at 8:32 and 10:32; at 9:30 and 11:30 is a very adult (and very funny) “One Day at a Time” episode.
5) “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” return, 10 p.m. Wednesday, ABC. It was 20 years (and three months) ago that “Millionaire” debuted, causing a sensation. It aired three nights a week – finishing 1, 2 and 3 in the year’s Nielsen ratings. The second year, it had five nights, all in the top 20. It was soon canceled, but had a daytime version and now a weekly series, with Jimmy Kimmmel hosting and celebrities playing for money. The opener has Eric Stonestreet of “Modern Family,” then Will Forte.
6) “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), 8 p.m. Friday, Turner Classic Movies. With theaters closed, TV has become our movie house … sometimes introducing us to the very best. On Wednesday, “Parasite” – the odd and intriguing Oscar-winner for best picture – reaches Hulu. Then Friday is big: “Oz” – No. 10 on the American Film Institute’s all-time list – is at 8 p.m. with a making-of documentary at 7. Friday also has James Bond – Daniel Craig films at 5:45 and 8:10 p.m. on HBO; previous ones all day on Epix.
7) “The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel,” 8-10:33 p.m. Saturday, Lifetime; also, 11:30 a.m. and 10:03 p.m. Sunday. A sound has rippled through modern music, from Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey to “Idol” hopefuls. Soaring with riffs and runs ,it goes back to gospel and, especially, the Clarks. That explains why Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Missy Elliott produced this film. Aunjanue Ellis plays Mattie Moss Clark, who molded five daughters into a group that found mainstream success.
8) More Easter films. The “Clark Sisters” movie is in a weekend of faith-based films. On Lifetime, it’s 5-11 p.m. Friday; 10:33 p.m. Saturday and all day (starting 11:30 a.m.) Sunday. On Friday, UpTV has “Noah’s Ark” at 4 p.m. PT, with “The Passion of the Christ” at 6 and 8; faith films continue at 9 a.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. Sunday. Also Sunday, Turner Classic Movies has epics –”Ben Hur” at 9 a.m. PT, “Greatest Story Ever Told” at 1 p.m., “King of Kings” at 9 – plus the “Easter Parade” musical at 5.
9) “Killing Eve” season-opener, 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC. This was supposed to be a big zombie night – the season-finale of “Walking Dead” and the debut of “World Beyond,” with Nebraska teens who have grown up in a zombie world. The coronavirus shutdown, however, has postponed both until later this year. Fortunately, “Eve” was ready to go. As the season starts, Carolyn is being undermined at MI6; her son Kenny obsesses on The Twelve, the group that has manipulated assassins, including Villanelle.
10) “Baptiste” debut, 10 p.m. Sunday, PBS. For two well-crafted seasons, “The Missing” had Julien Baptiste, a French detective. tracing missing-kid cases. That brought a Golden Globe nomination (best movie or mini-series) and praise for actor Tcheky Karyo. Now his new case starts; it’s preceded by the second “World on Fire” episode, a good one, at 9. In the opener, Harry married Kasia, so she could escape Poland. But she put her little brother on the train, instead. Now Harry’s home, bearing secrets.
