PICK OF THE NIGHT
Person of Interest
CBS, 10 p.m.
The techno-thriller’s fifth and final season has already seen heartbreaking exits (R.I.P. Root), and the long-awaited showdown between the Machine and Samaritan will only add to the death toll. “Our heroes aren’t going to make it out of this one intact,” creator Jonathan Nolan tells EW. “It’s a bloodbath.” For more on the series finale, check out our full interview with Nolan here.
Pretty Little Liars
Freeform, 8 p.m.
Can you believe it’s already the drama’s seventh season? And according to showrunner Marlene King, it will also be the most romantic one yet. Head here for our complete rundown of everything we know about PLL’s return.
PBS, 10 p.m.
Ah, here’s an example of why we love PBS so much: a thorough and entertaining three-episode documentary in which historians, scientists, archaeologists, actors, and more explore how the ancient Greeks created “the first draft of Western civilization.” And don’t worry, there won’t be a quiz at the end.
OWN, 10 p.m.
Oprah Winfrey’s latest scripted production blends primetime soap opera with Christian-culture critique, all with a fresh, wise, and relevant perspective. Read our critic’s review of the new series here.
