What to watch on Monday, December 19...

Whoops, it's Monday again! How did that happen? Either way, this could either be a stressful and awful week for you, or it could be chill and NBD. Assuming you aren't going to spend most of tonight stuck in a mall parking lot, make sure and check out these slightly paltry TV offerings!

SEASON 1 FINALE, 8pm, Fox
Terra Nova
Tune in for tonight's 2-hour season (series?) finale, wherein the 11th Pilgrimage arrives/invades and characters find themselves torn between helping the Phoenix Group and thwarting it. Whatever happens, make sure your expectations are sky-high, because this finale is sure to deliver!

SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, NBC
Who's Still Standing?
Russian Roulette, call your lawyers. In this new game show, contestants compete for a chance at $1 million by answering trivia questions, and incorrect answers get them dropped through a trap door. (Question: How long until that Jeopardy! robot is a contestant?)

9pm, TNT
The Closer
Brenda and the team look into the hit-and-run murder of a girl on a bicycle, but they encounter complications when it looks like the police commissioner and his wife may have been involved. Meanwhile Brenda attempts to save money on heating bills after noticing how many office windows are left open.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, NBC
VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul
Tonight the divas give props to various cities where soul music blossomed, including Detroit, Chicago, Memphis, and London. Tonight's array of brassy scream-singers includes Jessie J, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, and Florence N.D. Machine.

10pm, TNT
Rizzoli & Isles
Tonight the lady detectives investigate the stabbing death of a professional dancer's mother. B-story involves Korsak's son, who may or may not have shot a cop. C-story involves sass!
