What to watch on Thursday, August 11.

Rookie Blue

Has anyone ever told you how VERY beautiful or handsome you look in the flickering blue glow of your TV screen? It's true!

SEASON 8 FINALE, 8pm, Fox
So You Think You Can Dance
From the first glint of Nigel's capped teeth to the last note of Mary Murphy's mellifluous bray, this was a season for the record books. Truly talented, likeable kids, perfectly ranked and sorted by American voters and the judges who serve them. Plus, these four finalists really WERE the best four! How often does THAT happen? Tune in tonight to see who will be crowned America's Favorite Dancer! Melanie or Sasha? Who cares, the real winner will be Cat Deeley, just like every season.

10pm, ABC
Rookie Blue
The quarantine curtain lowers when a suspect exposes everyone to a mysterious illness, plus a dyed-blue man is apprehended for bank robbery and Dov finds time to date a bomb technician. Work harder, everyone!

9pm, Lifetime
Project Runway
Well, this looks ridiculous: Tonight the designers must team up to design ensembles for STILT WALKERS. Featuring KIM KARDASHIAN as a guest judge. Just what in the F is going on here, Heidi? FIX IT.

10:30pm, FX
Louie
In tonight's episode entitled "Come on, God," Louie will "explore a lifelong habit." Of what, sassin' THE LORD? That ain't no way to talk to the Heavenly Father, Louie!

9pm, USA
Burn Notice
Michael and Jesse find themselves trapped by Caribbean mercenaries (note: not undead pirates) while on an extraction mission. Also, Fiona will attempt to get info out of her ex by doing his bidding. With sexy results.

SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Lifetime
Russian Dolls
Hey why not check out TV's newest ethnically specific reality trash-fest? This time it's Russian-American families in Brooklyn who get the unflattering edit—we'll meet an older lady who enters a grandmother pageant, plus some lady struggles to "come out" to her mom and reveal she's dating a Latino man. Nyet? ¡Sí!
