What to watch on Thursday, April 10...
In this special “ABC has a time slot to fill” installment, one appealing pitch has the tank’s ladies competing against its gents. Other products on offer include jaunty slippers, flattering legwear, and zesty nuts.
The Big Bang Theory
When Raj and Emily join Howard and Bernadette for a double-date in “The Relationship Diremption,” Emily winds up spilling a mortifying secret about Howard. Elsewhere, Sheldon’s world is in disarray after he loses faith in string theory.
In “Basic Story,” the gang is reeling from news that Subway plans to buy Greendale and convert it into Subway University. The development leads to attractive offers for Jeff and Britta, and to a treasure hunt for Annie and Abed.
Parks and Recreation
The influenza virus strikes again in “Flu Season 2,” hindering Leslie and Andy’s efforts to line up acts for the Unity Concert. Tom is scouting for talent as well, hoping that a wine competition will lead him to the perfect sommelier for his restaurant.
SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, USA
Harvey and Mike duke it out with a dogged U.S. attorney in “No Way Out.” In more personal conflicts, Mike and Rachel disagree about their future while Scottie and Harvey can barely come to terms about their present.

Project Runway: Under the Gunn
Guest judges Heidi Klum and Neil Patrick Harris weigh in on the finalists’ climactic collections, which they must assemble in only three days.
9pm, The CW
The discovery of a secret clause in her marriage contract incenses Mary in “Liege Lord.” To strike back, she and Francis decide to rally the Scottish people against the person who's responsible: her mother.
In “I’m Winning,” Cristina is determined to keep a cool head after being nominated for a Harper Avery Award. Around the hospital, Richard bucks up the residents’ spirits, Bailey aides a young boy who lacks an immune system, and Derek and Callie take an emotion-recognizing machine out for a spin.
Frankie tries to muster the nerve to invite his dream date to Homecoming in “How Do You Talk to an Angel.” Meanwhile, Jack tasks Rachel with chauffeuring George to school as a punishment.

Simon’s new squeeze in “Love Sucks” is Robin Williams’ old co-star, Pam Dawber. But is there a future for the erstwhile Mork and Mindy after Gordon’s break-up sours Simon on romance altogether?
In “No Lack of Void,” a fatally poisoned pickpocket sends Holmes and Watson searching for the toxin that did him in: an anthrax supply that jeopardizes the entire city.
Joel helps Crosby with his housing troubles, Hank helps Amber handle bad news, and Kristina helps the charter school weather a setback. Elsewhere in “I’m Still Here,” Julia and Sarah have a heart-to-heart that, most likely, will prove helpful.
Toni and Candace teach a few steps to the local NBA team’s dance squad in “Trail Blazers.” Other bits include Joaquin getting his smoothie on, Sandra hitting a tattoo removal parlor, and Malcolm and Kris crafting their own threads.
Ragnar and King Horik butt heads over the most suitable punishment for Jarl Borg, and if the episode title “Blood Eagle” is any indication, I doubt either of them is considering 60 hours of community service and a moderate fine. In Wessex, Ecbert targets a new ally.
Johnny intervenes when Hank is invited to his ex’s nuptials in “Till Jeff Do Us Part,” while Theresa deals with her own wedding-adjacent conflict and Brian gains a new professional skill.
10pm, Comedy Central
Forrest gains firsthand experience with orgies and road rage, efficiently checking off three or four deadly sins in just one episode, by my count.
