SEASON FINALE: Live Finale, Part 1. Tonight is the day, or night, of reckoning for the remaining four contestants: Laith Al-Saadi, Hannah Huston, Alisan Porter, and Adam Wakefield. Tonight they perform, but only one of them will emerge, eventually, as the season’s winner. My guess: It’ll be either Al-Saadi or Porter. They both have an abundance of talent, and Al-Saadi is an impressive musician as well but Porter has the more compelling backstory, which counts with viewers. Porter als

Tonight’s episode is called “The Door,” and includes, according to the on-air promo, a new character or two, as well as a new confrontation and a potential new alliance.

Now here’s a show that’s fun, and scary and disturbing, in all the right ways. And this season it’s added both Dracula and Dr. Jekyll into its gothic mix. Eva Green stars – and should get an Emmy nomination for how compelling she is here.

I wouldn’t have thought it necessary, much less possible, for Tatiana Maslany to concoct and embody yet another distinct clone identity – but her Crystal, with all her blondeness, fashion sense and overall cluelessness, has become an instant hit, and not only with me. And tonight, she figures prominently once again.

The basis of one of tonight’s scheduled skits suggests that Amy Schumer may be a closely watching fan of Cinemax’s The Knick: It’s a skit in which she has her arm sewn to her face.

In last week’s episode, Paige pushed her parents to get even closer to her bible-study teacher and his wife, to whom Paige revealed the truth about her parents being Soviet sleeper agents. That may have been tricky enough as is – but when the teacher goes missing while visiting a foreign country, his wife suspects the worst. And so does Paige…  See Alex Strachan's TV That Matters for an appreciation.

Part 5. Talk about being in too deep. Tom Hiddleston’s “hotel manager,” now posing as a mercenary in the inner circle of Hugh Laurie’s international arms smuggler, has been caught in a potential dalliance with the arms dealer’s mistress. The spy’s handlers called him off the mission, but instead, he dove in headfirst, defied orders and accompanied the bad guys on their latest scheme.

The technology of animation has gotten to the point where tonight, The Simpsons can end its episode with a wild TV gimmick: having Homer conclude an episode on impov comedy by improvising answers to questions posed “in real time” by fans. How exactly will this be accomplished? I’m not at all sure – but I’m sure I’ll be watching. For more on tonight's special event, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

The missing votes have been found – they just haven’t been counted yet. And if the results are revealed tonight, they’ll let us know what to expect from the remainder of this season, for Selina and the other funny, foul-mouthed characters on this political satire.

HUMANS: Season One

There’s no precise date for the Season 2 return of AMC’s sci-fi import HUMANS yet, but we eagerly await. One of the legitimate worth-watching hits of 2015, HUMANS is science fiction in premise only. While it envisions the day-to-day dilemmas of humanoid servants among us, the series is in every other way an engaging drama of freedom and morality. Some of the “Synthetics,” as the robots are called, may have been secretly programmed to gain actual human consciousness. HUMANS squarely confronts the idea of drones spawned as neo-slave labor, and as their masters, our arrogance, guilt — and new idleness. On sale at Amazon. —Eric Gould
