What to watch on Monday, May 12...
6pm, Cartoon Network
Friends, recently you’ve probably been asking yourselves, “What does Jake the Dog’s tail get up to these days when Jake is asleep?” Well, “Sad Face” provides your answer: It portrays the clown in a traveling circus. Then “Jake the Dad” follows an awake Jake’s struggles mastering fatherhood.
SERIES FINALE, 8pm, The CW
Roman is severely dinged up in “Passion Lends Them Power.” This looks like a job for that TV drama favorite, The Unlikely Ally! Elsewhere, Teri overhears a shocking command from Vega, who even more upsettingly has gotten her hands on the swiped Suvek.
A community college swim coach is found at the bottom of a well, and not because he was looking for a change of venue for swimming laps. Meanwhile in “The Drama in the Queen,” Booth preps to deliver congressional testimony, and Sweets is sweet on the Jeffersoninan’s new intern (The Lizzie Bennet Diaries’ Laura Spencer).
Friends With Better Lives
Kate wigs out upon learning that her new squeeze is a dad in “Yummy Mummy.” Another flirtatious father sets his sights on Andi at playgroup, vexing Rick.
24: Live Another Day
In “Day 9: 1:00 PM-2:00 PM,” Kate amps up her pursuit of Jack while Margot Al-Harazi gears up for a terror attack on her homeland. On the political front, President Heller prepares to address Parliament, and at this point his communications staff is practically begging him to take all those “pip-pips” and “guv’nors” out of his speech.
After slipping free of Paracelsus’s alternate universe in “Cangku Shisi,” Valda cooks up a cunning plan to schlep the Warehouse to China, for reasons. Adding insult to injury, the scheme requires using Claudia’s sister as a puppet Caretaker.
Mike & Molly
Peggy’s bathtub plummets through the ceiling in “This Old Peggy,” which isn’t all that surprising since the cartoon coyote who installed it had an abysmal Angie’s List rating. In the wake of the crash, Mike admonishes his mother to see a doctor—though this time, preferably not one at Acme General Hospital.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, NBC
In “Berlin: Conclusion,” Liz works to extricate Red from custody so they can hunt down the various brigands and ne’er-do-wells who’ve scattered to the wind after the transport plane crashed. My best guess is that they’ve all gathered in an abandoned movie theater to watch Snow White. No, wait, I’m thinking of the Gremlins. Never mind.
SEASON 6 FINALE, 10pm, ABC
Wedding bells are scant moments away from tolling in “For Better or Worse”... but not before the blushing bride and groom are yanked into a madcap romp involving masked miscreants, mad motorcyclists, and a mischievous man (Eddie McClintock) from Beckett’s past.
“Let the Fire Burn” chronicles a deadly 1985 collision between the activist organization MOVE and the Philadelphia police. The documentary tells the story solely through found source materials, including news coverage, public hearings, and interviews from the time.
10pm & 10:30pm, FX
A new acquaintance enters Louie’s life in “So Did the Fat Lady,” and a neighbor receives Louie’s assistance in “Elevator Part 1.”
10:30pm, Cartoon Network
Granddad turns tricks at a retirement community in “Early Bird Special.” If your mind did not immediately go to jokes about an AARP discount, you’re a better person than I.
NEW DAY & TIME, 11pm, Sundance
The Writers’ Room
Sons of Anarchy showrunner Kurt Sutter and star Katey Sagal rep SAMCRO in an episode that’s all but sure to end with a six-minute montage scored to an indie acoustic spin on an Irish folk ballad.
