Terminator: The Sarah Connor ChroniclesTerminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8 p.m.) - It feel like only yesterday that the series premiered, but hopefully tonight's two-hour finale won't be the series finale. The show is a keeper for supporting players Summer Glau and Brian Austin Green (who would have thunk it?) alone.

My Name Is Earl (TBS, 10 p.m.) - The NBC sitcom makes its syndication debut with an encore of its karmic pilot, complete with wise words of wisdom from Carson Daly.

The Secret Life of a Soccer Mom (TLC, 10 p.m.) - Growing Pains' Tracey Gold hosts this new reality show, which gives stay-at-home moms a chance at their dream jobs. Bonus points for making dad watch the kids.

New Amsterdam (FOX, 8 p.m.) - Forget doctors, lawyers and crime scene investigators. The new hot thing to be is immortal.

America's Next Top Model (The CW, 8 p.m.) - Ah, my favorite time of the reality show year: makeover time.
