What to watch on Tuesday, August 26...
8pm, The CW
iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Maroon 5
Celebrate the release of the band’s latest album, V, with the whole Maroon 5 gang—Adam Levine... uh, that other guy... possibly someone in sunglasses? Anyway, they’ll all be there, whoever they are.
SUMMER FINALE, 8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
The girls seek Mona’s help in “Taking This One to the Grave,” while Alison seeks support elsewhere after becoming persona non grata.
9pm, El Rey
Galan attends Cristina’s quinceñera in “Mano a Mano,” but the abduction of a teammate keeps Tony away from the festivities. And no, “abduction of a teammate” isn’t code for “forgot to go shopping and is embarrassed to show up without a gift.” Honest. Probably.
Rizzoli & Isles
A spicy tea leads to a different sort of spice for Angela in “If You Can’t Stand the Heat.” In less amorous affairs, the team investigates the death of a man found in a bathtub full of ice during a heat wave. Whether he still had his kidneys remains to be seen.
Hank treats Cinco for a sore wrist and does his best not to make the jokes we’re all thinking of right now, don’t try and act like you’re not. Elsewhere in “A Bigger Boat,” Evan, Paige, and Emma devise a cunning plan to nab Oz, while Divya and Jeremiah treat a shipwright with a chip on his shoulder.
SUMMER FINALE, 10pm, USA
Annie goes against Auggie’s wishes to aid McQuaid’s mission in “Sensitive Euro Man,” which I’m pretty sure was also the name of a D-list Hawkman villain in the ‘70s. In other finale business, Hayley steps up her investigation in the face of a looming threat.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, FX
“Gone Fishing” finds Barry preparing to oust Jamal, though a sudden complication could throw those plans asunder. Meanwhile, Jamal grows suspicious that those closest to him may be plotting betrayal. Which, y’know, is pretty astute on his part, because of that first thing I said.
A Young Doctor’s Notebook & Other Stories
The young doctor is bedeviled by cocaine and an alluring aristocrat, and if Behind the Music taught us anything, it’s that such a combination inevitably spells bad news.
Betrayal! Treachery! Scoundrelosity! Carter is walloped by all these things from David’s corner in “Do the Right Thing,” which, let’s be honest, should really have been titled “Betrayal! Treachery! Scoundrelosity!” instead.
NEW TIME, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Three of the most finely tuned physical specimens in the history of American athletics—Jim Thorpe, Babe Didrikson, and Jim Abbott—are recalled by people barely capable of walking in a straight line. Performers include Jason Momoa, Zach Gilford, and Emily Deschanel.
SERIES FINALE, 11pm, E!
After seven years on the air, Chelsea Handler’s talk show bows with an hour-long swan song, broadcast live in the eastern half of the country. A cavalcade of celebrity guests are scheduled to appear, including Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock, and there will also be performances by Miley Cyrus and 50 Cent with G Unit.
