What to Watch Tonight: The Season Finales of Community, 30 Rock, and Grey's Anatomy


What to watch on Thursday, May 17...

While the marathon that is this week isn't QUITE over yet, consider tonight's lineup the Dixie cup of Gatorade you so desperately needed. Finish strong!

SEASON 3 FINALE, 8pm, NBC
Community
Be advised! There are THREE episodes of Community on tonight: 8 p.m., 9 p.m., and the season finale at 9:30 p.m. Plotlines involve: Pierce fights to win his deceased father's inheritance; the group seeks to take down Chang on his birthday; and in "Introduction to Finality," Jeff represents Shirley in a legal matter and Vice Dean Laybourne makes one last attempt to recruit Troy into the Air Conditioning Repair Annex.

SEASON 6 FINALE, 8:30pm, NBC
30 Rock
In tonight's Season 6 finale, Jack enlists Liz to officiate his vow renewal ceremony. Meanwhile Criss attempts to win Liz's affections and Tracy looks for guidance from Cornel West about being a black celebrity. See you next year, you buncha unprofessional rascals!

SEASON8 FINALE, 9pm, ABC
Grey's Anatomy
Hope you like plane crash-related trauma! Grey's Anatomy tends to do season finales well, so tonight promises to continue that tradition: Doctors sort through the carnage of your typical end-of-the-season disaster event; Bailey and Ben address their relationship; plus Richard plans a special dinner for all the residents. The ones who survive, anyway.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, CBS
Person of Interest
"Firewall" should leave us in full-blown mythology territory when the FBI closes in on Reese and we'll presumably learn even more of his secrets. Hopefully Reese can take a nice, long beach vacation afterward?

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, ABC
Scandal
Tonight Olivia and her posse rush to help Quinn, who's suddenly found herself in a "tragic and compromising" situation. Meanwhile Billy Chambers makes an announcement that Fitz is NOT happy with and it's up to Olivia to figure stuff out, obviously.

SEASON 4 FINALE, 10pm, CBS
The Mentalist
Tonight Jane deals with his Red John blues by hitting up the Las Vegas strip. Meanwhile the CBI are like, "Oh, don't worry about it Jane, we'll just solve this John Doe homicide by ourselves," before sighing loudly.

I'm very excited to watch two season finales tonight: The epic three-episode finale of Community, and the exciting finale of Person of Interest. Both seem like they'll be great, but I'm actually more excited about Community's. Imagine that, a comedy series making me more excited than an action series. I'm also going to watch Touch.

I didn't think you can watch PoI on On Demand. Or online. I have a DVR so didn't notice but a lot of fans complain about that.

I'm hoping the wolves from The Grey kill and eat everyone from Grey's Anatomy in the most brutal fashion possible.

Despite the very real possibility that my brain will overload resulting in a warped perception of reality (a la Abed), I will have to watch Community.



Also on the schedule: 30 Rock, Person of Interest, The Mentalist.
