What to watch on Tuesday, April 8...


8pm, PBS
Great Performances
“The Dave Clark Five and Beyond—Glad All Over” spotlights one of the groups at the vanguard of the British Invasion, who notched 15 Top 20 U.S. singles and a record-breaking 18 appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show. Included are performance footage, clips from the band’s 1965 film Catch Us If You Can, and interviews including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, Boss Bruce Springsteen, and Titleless Tom Hanks.


8pm, Fox
Glee
The gang experiences the highs and lows of life in the Big Apple in “Bash,” as Rachel redoubles her commitment to Funny Girl while Kurt is targeted by attackers.


8pm, CBS
NCIS
Having just returned to her Pentagon gig in “Page Not Found,” McGee’s girlfriend Delilah recruits the NCIS team on a hot-button case. On the personal front, McGee contemplates asking Delilah to cohabitate.


8pm, ABC
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
“Turn, Turn, Turn” puts the team in a tight spot with seemingly no means of escape—and with a traitor turning the screws. Could this spell the end of Coulson and his merry agents? [Checks the episode number.] Probably not!


9pm, ABC
The Goldbergs
It’s an '80s-zeitgeist twofer in “You’re Not Invited,” as Adam gears up for his laser tag birthday party (which he hopes Dana will attend) while the much-ballyhooed opening of Al Capone’s vault captivates Pops and Murray. Surely neither of those events could end in disappointment.


9pm, Fox
The Mindy Project
Mindy and Danny give dating a whirl in “Be Cool,” and everything is pretty chill and free of incident. Ha, no, just kidding, here comes Danny’s ex right away to bollix it all up. Then in “Girl Crush,” a doc Mindy reveres makes her a tempting professional offer.


9pm, Syfy
Face Off
In “Bloodsuckers,” the four remaining contestants bring some of history’s most iconic vampires to life. Well, "undeath," anyway. Look, you know what I mean. The important thing is that the challenge must involve the premier nightwalker in the Western canon.


9pm, NBC
About a Boy
With Marcus struggling to enjoy his first sleepover, Fiona horns in on Will’s social turf in “About a Poker Night.” Also at the card table is Will’s good buddy Crosby (Dax Shepard), visiting from another corner of the Katimsverse.


9:30pm, NBC
Growing Up Fisher
Katie’s driver’s license isn’t the ticket to freedom she was hoping for, since it means schlepping Mel all about town. As they quickly get on one another’s nerves in “Katie You Can Drive My Car,” Joyce puts Henry to a different sort of work as an icebreaker with her classmates.


SEASON 5 FINALE, 10pm, FX
Justified
Raylan takes drastic measures in his quest to bring down Daryl Crowe in “Restitution,” up to and including painting a fake tunnel on the side of a mountain and waiting for Darryl to run smack-dab into it. Meanwhile, the cartel closes in on Boyd, prompting him to try the ol’ “disguise oneself as a houseplant and inch closer to the exit” stratagem.


10pm, BET
The Game
“Chardonnay Goes Kissing” in this episode, determined to repay Jason’s transgression in kind. Elsewhere, Yana stands up for Malik’s honor during an encounter with Tori.


10pm, PBS
Frontline
“Secret State of North Korea” chronicles life inside the repressive rogue state, including undercover footage from within the country and interviews with defectors.


10pm, NBC
Chicago Fire
In “Until Your Feet Leave the Ground,” Severide takes a chance to help a Denver firefighter with an addiction problem. Meanwhile, Jones discovers that her father is pressing Boden about her career, Mills helps Mouch spruce up his online dating profile, and Dawson and Shay decamp to a cabin in the woods for a relaxing weekend and/or a confrontation with a demonic slasher.


10:30pm, Comedy Central
Inside Amy Schumer
Amy takes in the prom in “I’m So Bad.” Less sociable sketches see her firing up a violent video game and chowing down on a dude’s face.
