What to Watch Tonight: Glee, Ringer, and Raising Hope

  • 28comments

What to watch on Tuesday, April 17...

It's Day 2 of this thing we call the working week, and boy has it been a tough'un so far. Just universally a tough'un, am I right? But onward, upward, greener pastures and all that: It's TV time!

8pm, Fox
Glee
It's disco week at McKinley high as the kids start groovin' to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever! Because teens still care about disco, right? I would ask my teenage children about disco but they legally divorced me a long time ago.

8pm, CBS
NCIS
In "Rekindled," the gang looks into a mysterious warehouse fire after missing Navy documents are found at the site. Plus Tony finds himself in an uncomfortable reunion with someone from his past. Typical Baltimore drama.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, CW
Ringer
If you've stuck it out all season, it's no doubt because you're hoping for an excellent twist and/or cliffhanger in this, the season finale. But Ringer may not be coming back ever, so let's hope tonight's finale works as a series finale also? Talkin' bout closure, folks. Anyway, in "I'm the Good Twin," Bridget decides she must tell Andrew who she really is, plus Henry ponders whether to tell Bridget the truth about Siobhan. Or, you know, whatever.

SEASON 2 FINALE, 9:30pm, Fox
Raising Hope
Tonight's season finale finds our characters in a premise-rattling scenario: A custody battle erupts after a tabloid publicizes the death of Hope's serial-killer mom. Fortunately this show's been renewed for a third season, so I'm guessing things will end up all right (Spoiler alert).

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, Investigation Discovery
The Woman Who Wasn't There
Meredith Vieira brings us this true story of Tania Head, co-founder of the World Trade Center Survivors' Network, who claimed to have escaped from the World Trade Center on the day of the 9/11 attacks. Turns out she didn't do that at all, and in fact made up the whole story! This special delves into just how elaborate her fraud was and what drove her to do it.
