1) “Mom” series finale, 9 p.m Thursday., CBS. At times, this has been TV’s best comedy, a dandy blend of quiet emotion (as recovering alcoholics cope with life) and loud humor. The latter part is propelled by by Bonnie’s unapologetic adventures. Allison Janney (shown here with William Fichtner) has mastered the role, winning two Emmys and three more nominations – to go with four Emmys and an Oscar elsewhere. Now some news gives Bonnie a new outlook on sobriety. And Jill and Andy, now re-connected, take a big step.
2) “Blue Bloods” season-finale, 9 and 10 p.m. Friday, CBS. In last year’s season-finale, Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) met an adult grandson he didn’t know about. (Joe Hill’s biologic father, Joe Reagan, was killed long ago, as an undercover cop.) The new Joe was in the first three episodes this year, then vanished. Now we learn why: He’s working undercover, in a gang that his Uncle Danny, a police detective, is investigating. That’s in a two-part finale for a show that will be back for its 12th season.
3) “Mayans M.C.” season-finale, 10 p.m. Tuesday, FX; reruns at midnight. This fiercely crafted show seemed headed for a great series-finale. But “Mayans” has just been renewed for next season; this hour has great moments, but strains to add new twists and prolong the story. Last week, EZ told Gaby he wants to leave town with her; also, Galindo drugged his wife, started to drown her, then relented. Now Bishop triggers his lethal plan. And two compelling characters – Adelita and Potter – finally collide.
4) “Good Witch” season-opener, 9 p.m. Sunday, Hallmark. With several shows ending their seasons, here’s one that’s just starting. It’s a role Catherine Bell has done for 13 years – six in annual movies and now the seventh season of the series. Her character – Cassie, who uses mild magic and warm humanity – remains the same, but people around her change. She’s met two cousins; she’s also married, been widowed and married again. Now, on a long-awaited boating date, they end up stranded on an island.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m. Saturday, NBC. As teens’ weekends go, this is pretty good: On Friday, Olivia Rodrigo has the second-season opener of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series,” on Disney+; the next night is her “SNL” debut, with Keegan-Michael Key hosting. Six days later, her album debuts. Rodrigo, 18, starred for three seasons in “Bizaardvark,” before playing Nini in the Disney+ series. Her first single, “Drivers License,” was No. 1 in the U.S. and seven other countries.
6) “Power of Women: The Comedians,” 8 p.m. today, Lifetime. “Saturday Night Live” is also key to this special, which honors six masters of TV comedy. Half started on “SNL” – Kate McKinnon, Maya Rudolph and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. So did two people (Aidy Bryant and Bowen Yang) doing interviews for the show, plus Tina Fey, who presents a tribute to the original “SNL” female star, Gilda Radner. Also honored will be Sofia Vergara and two writer-producer-stars, Mindy Kaling and Michaela Coel.
7) “The Masked Singer,” 8 p.m. Wednesday, Fox. There are still five contestants left – Black Swan, Piglet, Chameleon, Yeti and several people combining as Russian Dolls. Lately, this has unmasked some legitimate singers — Bobby Brown, Mark McGrath and, last week, Tyrese Gibson. Earlier, it ousted movie villain Danny Trejo, Internet star Logan Paul, ex-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and Kermit the Frog. Two weeks from the finale, the show gets its final four.
8) “Pride” opener, 8-11 p.m. Friday, FX. Here’s the first half of a two-week documentary, outlining gay history. It starts back in the 1950s, skillfully mixing documentary footage and re-enactments. We meet some people who were well-known at the time – including Christine Jorgensen, a World War II soldier who had transgender surgery in 1952 – and some who weren’t, including Madeleine Trees (portrayed by Alia Shawkat), a San Francisco lawyer. We also see a chilling case of blackmail in the U.S. Senate.
9) “China: Nature’s Animal Kingdom” opener, 8 p.m. Saturday, BBC America. This has become a splendid tradition for BBC America: Every Saturday has a marathon of gorgeous nature reruns, plus a new hour at 8. And for the next three weeks, the new hours visit 10 Chinese national parks. The opener is in the Tibetan plateau, starting and ending with a fox guiding her young ones. This also has stunning footage of a 120-man, mountain-top monastery … and of the brown bear that visits it each night.
10) “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” season-finale, 9 p.m. Sunday, NBC. At the end of the week (and end of the alphabet) is this extraordinary show, with Zoey hearing people’s thoughts via pop songs. The May 9 episode, a flashback, was brilliant; now we’ll see if this can match the first season’s emotional finish. Other season finales this week: Thursday, CBS’ “Young Sheldon” and “B Positive” (8 and 9:30); Sunday, Fox’s “Great North” and “Family Guy” (8:30 and 9:30) and ABC’s “The Rookie” (10 p.m.)
