What to watch on Tuesday, May 8...

The mid-May revolving door of hellos and goodbyes continues tonight with a number of notable season finales. Come back soon, old friends!

New Girl
One of my favorite shows currently on the air closes out its first season tonight with "See Ya": After last week's revelation that Nick was moving out, the gang scrambles to figure out what to do next... And it seems to include an impromptu trip to the desert! There, Winston will be forced to face his fear of the dark and Schmidt & Cece's relationship will reach a crossroads. (Figuratively, I'm pretty sure.)

The Voice
It all comes down to this! Tonight the judges of The Voice, the American Public, and also Carson Daly will all join hands and usher in the nation's next vocal superstar! This person will surely go onto vast fortune and fame and dozens of hit singles and a wheelbarrow full of Grammys. Best of luck, remaining finalists! (Quick question: What happened to Season 1's winner?)

Last Man Standing
Also bidding us farewell tonight is Tim Allen and his manly brand of observational comedy. In "Found Money," Mike becomes wary when Vanessa's sister pays them a visit. Plus Kristin and Kyle decide to break up and Kyle frets that Mike won't take the news so well. It'll be fine as long as you don't act like a pansy, Kyle, duh!

Tonight we may or may not get more insight into the death of Carrie's sister when Carrie investigates an eerily similar murder in Syracuse. (Spoiler alert: She remembers?)

SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, History
United Stats of America
Noted twins of hilarity Randy and Jason Sklar host this new History Channel series documenting interesting, odd, or surprising American statistics. Tonight they'll discuss the deadliest animal in America, which may not be what you expected! (You expected raccoons, right?)
