What to watch on Wednesday, August 27...


SUMMER FINALE, 8pm, ABC Family
Young & Hungry
In “Young & Thirty (...and Getting Married!),” Josh and Caroline’s nuptials are pushed up, sending everyone into a tizzy. But Caroline forgets her betrothed’s birthday in the process, prompting Gabi to make a selfless decision that she may well come to regret.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 8:30pm, ABC Family
Mystery Girls
A Mystery Girls commercial puts Nick’s life in danger, but at least it doesn’t overdramatize everything the way most of ABC Family’s episode promos do. While Nick tries to elude a mob hitman in “The Killer Returns,” Charlie tries to allay her husband’s concerns about her dangerous line of work.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, WE
The Divide
Terry bunks at Christine’s place, raising tension between Christine and Danny, in “To Whom Evil Is Done.” But hey, after a few wine coolers and a spirited round of “Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board,” I’m sure everything will smooth right over.


9pm, TNT
Legends
Martin takes on the guise of an arms dealer in order to save a kidnapped chemist in “Lords of War.” In the process, he strikes up an affair with an alluring fellow weapons merchant, because eHarmony's got nothing on the international arms trade when it comes to potential for love connections.


9pm, CBS
Extant
Addled by a vision of his late daughter, Sparks absconds with Molly’s baby to a remote location in “Care and Feeding.” Then in “A Pack of Cards,” Molly closes in on her outre offspring while John begins to doubt Yasumoto’s true motives.


SEASON 2 FINALE, 10pm, ABC
Motive
In “For You I Die,” Cross and Flynn are staggered by the reemergence of a case from their past, which TV fans know can only mean one thing: flashback hair! In more recent proceedings, Cross has a personal stake in the investigation of a prosecutor’s murder.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, PBS
Operation Maneater
Conversation wildlife experts using cutting-edge technology to seek peaceful solutions to the eternal struggle between man and beast. In the opener, the team tries out methods to prevent great white shark attacks on people in Western Australia, the better to keep both species alive… at least until the premiere of Sharknado 3: Sharknadoes Down Under.


10pm, USA
Graceland
Briggs guns for the person inside Graceland who has evidence of his past crimes in “Home.” In other legally dubious dealings, the team hopes to strike a blow against Mike’s archenemy by robbing a bank.


10pm, FX
The Bridge
Marco’s sordid past comes to light, a move against Fausto comes to a head, and Eleanor’s loyalty comes into question. Elsewhere in “Goliath,” Sonya pays a call on a figure from her past.


10pm, TV Land
Hot in Cleveland
Possible triumphs loom for the ladies in “Win Win.” Victoria is nominated for an Oscar, Elka awaits the City Council election, and Melanie is one card-punch away from a free sandwich at the local deli.


10pm, TNT
Franklin & Bash
In my line of work, people are always coming up to me on the street and asking, “Andy, when will Mike Tyson finally guest-star on Franklin & Bash?” And now I can finally tell them: Tonight, friends. Tonight, in “Love Is the Drug,” which sees the guys defending a taxi driver accused of snatching celebrity purses and Infeld getting into a dust-up with a restaurateur (John Michael Higgins).


10pm, NBC
Taxi Brooklyn
With a blackout plunging half the borough into darkness in “The Longest Night,” Cat makes an arrest that sets off a showdown between the precinct and a violent gang. In another part of the city, Chandler is trapped in an ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre.
