1) “Prodigal Son” series finale, 9 p.m., Fox. This gothic drama ends in its fashion – deep, dark, nasty, sometimes wildly over the top. At the core is Martin (Michael Sheen), a surgeon and serial killer. Last week, we learned that his prison doctor (Catherine Zeta-Jones, shown here with Sheen) is just as cruel. After he escaped, she took him hostage … then added his son, a police profiler. Now the guys have escaped and find a convenient case to solve. There’s much more, in an hour that combines brilliant acting and fiercely excessive plot twists.
2) “Superman & Lois” return, 9 p.m., CW. It’s been a bumpy ride for this well-crafted drama. Delayed until February, the show drew praise … and then had a second COVID shutdown; after showing five episodes, it vanished for two months. Now it’s back: Setting aside his Superman duties, Clark has returned to Smallville with his wife Lois and their twin sons. He has doubts about letting Jordan (who has flashes of superpowers) play football; she’s a reporter, probing Morgan Edge, a developer.
3) “Mixed-ish” series-finale, 9:30 p.m., ABC. Memories don’t always agree, it seems. In current times, Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and her siblings (Daveed Diggs and Rashida Jones) recall when they all got bikes. Their versions disagree sharply.
4) Season-finales. “The Resident” (8 p.m., Fox) wraps up a terrific season with an episode that’s merely OK; it packs way too much into an hour, requiring quick solutions and instant coincidences. Also, ABC has three: “Pooch Perfect” (8 p.m.) picks a winner … “Black-ish” (9 :30) finds Dre pondering a career change, after feeling confined to urban-marketing teams. … “Big Sky” (10 p.m.) sees Ronald scheming to escape and Cassie finding her life in danger.
5) ALSO: Two ratings giants collide at 8 p.m.: On NBC, “The Voice” sets up next week’s two-night finale. On CBS, “NCIS” has Katrina Law play the lone survivor of an explosion, helping learn what happened; also, Pam Dawber (the wife of series star Mark Harmon) plays an investigative journalist.
