1) Basketball, 9 p.m ET., ABC. At first, the NBA finals seemed in danger of ending prematurely. The Phoenix Suns (shown here) won the first two games; a four-game sweep would have robbed ABC of some high-ratings games … and robbed viewers of much-needed summer fun. But the Milwaukee Bucks won the next three. If they win tonight, they’re champions; if the Suns win, there’s a final game Thursday.
2) “The Flash” season-finale, 8 p.m., CW. This mini-network’s top-rated show ends its season with a battle against a fierce foe. Tying to end the speedster wars, the Flash needs helpdfrom everyone – including his future children, Bart and Nora.
3) “Superman & Lois,” 9 p.m., CW. Far from their super world, the family digs into Smallville life. Clark meets the developer who seems to be taking over the town… Lois links with Chrissy to write a news story … And in high school, Jonathan finds welcome distraction, after a stressful high school day.
4) Olympics, 7 p.m. ET, NBC Sports Network. The opening ceremony is still three days away, but a few sports begin early, starting with softball: The home-town team (Japan, but with no fans in the stands) faces Austria; then the U.S. faces Italy. Women’s soccer starts overnight.
5) “Miracle Workers: The Oregon Trail,” 10:30 p.m., TBS. A wagon train brings some steep moral issues, it seems, especially when fording a deep river: Should rich people go with their friends or buy a ferry ticket? Is it proper to shoot a bald eagle for supper? Should you leave the weakest person behind, thus lightening the load? The contrasts are sharp when the group is led by an outlaw (Steve Buscemi) and a clergyman (Daniel Radcliffe). It’s another sharp and funny episode.
