The Season Finales of Bones, Parks and Rec, and The Office

What to watch on Thursday, May 19.

Tonight your biggest problem will be WHICH season finales you’ll watch and in WHAT order. But that’s what’s called a problem of privilege, guy. At least you’re not living in the gutter, you know? Unless you are. (Wait, ARE you?)


SEASON 3 FINALE, 8pm, CBS
The Big Bang Theory
When Raj gets grossed out by Leonard and Priya’s sexy Star Trek role playing, he decides to move in with Sheldon. Plus, the gang gives tons of verbal noogies to Howard when he becomes the only one of them without a doctorate.

SEASON 3 FINALE, 10pm & 10:30pm, NBC
Parks & Recreation
Back-to-back awkwardness tonight: First, everyone’s disgruntled when Chris starts making big changes in the Parks Department. THEN, Leslie organizes a memorial service for a dearly departed friend and Tom makes a major life decision.

SEASON 6 FINALE, 9pm, Fox
Bones
In tonight’s season finale, the remains of a dead bowler are found jammed into an automatic pin setter, so Booth goes deep undercover as a member of Max’s bowling league to get some answers. And also to bowl. (Bowling is fun!)

SEASON 7 FINALE, 9pm, NBC
The Office
Get ready for a CAVALCADE of guest stars tonight, as tons of ‘em interview for the now-vacant regional manager position. The funnymen and women include: Jim Carrey, Ricky Gervais (as David Brent!!), Will Arnett, James Spader, Catherine Tate and lovable underdog billionaire Ray Romano.

SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, CBS
The Mentalist
Get ready for two straight hours of the mental-est show on television! (I am going to make this catchphrase happen). Anyway, tune in to see the team finally face down the dastardly Red John.

SEASON 7 FINALE, 9pm, ABC
Grey's Anatomy
Whether you’re a casual viewer or an out-and-proud fangurl, you have to admit: Grey’s Anatomy KNOWS how to do season finales. Tune in tonight as Meredith faces repercussions for her professional deceit, plus Cristina and Teddy make tough decisions. In finale-speak, that means someone will be shot in the head, right? You never know with this show.

Bones and the Mentalist! I am taping Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice for my mom. I can't wait to see what Red John looks like. On the commercial that's been airing recently, there's a point where I assume Red John is talking to Jane, but the person who is talking sounds like a woman. I'm not sure if that actually is Red John, but it stuck me as interesting.

No matter how good the Bones final is it couldn't possibly be better than last week's episode was (In terms of season finals I mean) Last week's should have been the last episode.
