TV Notes: ‘Downton Abbey’ wraps up with shocker

Don’t miss

“DOWNTON ABBEY” SEASON FINALE: Oh, m’lord, is it over, already? Yes, after a tumultuous season that brought us two weddings (one fabulous, one botched), a funeral (we miss you, Sybil), a baby girl and a dreary prison stint, all the Crawley drama is wrapping up way too soon with a two-hour blowout. But first, one more sad shocker. Of course, it may not be a shock for those who have come across those intrusive spoilers. Please, PBS, start airing this show closer to the British run! Tonight, 8 p.m., KSPS; 9 p.m. KCDT; PBS.

Other bets

Tonight: Hockey players, roller derby moms and twin doctors are among the colorful menagerie spanning the globe in Season 22 of “The Amazing Race.” First stop: Bora Bora. 8 p.m., CBS.

Tonight: OK, so Billy Campbell is no Daniel Day Lewis. Still, he does a capable job of playing our 16th president in “Killing Lincoln.” Based on the best-seller by Bill O’Reilly and narrated by Tom Hanks, it’s a dramatic retelling of Lincoln’s final days. 8 p.m., National Geographic Channel.

MONDAY: Suffering from post-Super Bowl withdrawal? Check out tonight’s football-themed “Hawaii Five-0,” which has McGarrett (Alex O’Loughlin) launching a crime investigation that leads to the Pro Bowl at Aloha Stadium. Houston Texans running back Arian Foster makes a guest appearance. 10 p.m., CBS.

TUESDAY: Yes, there is still some life in “Body of Proof.” The drama, starring Dana Delany as medical examiner Megan Hunt, returns after a long layoff for a Season 3 filled with mysteries and corpses. 10 p.m., ABC.

WEDNESDAY: Say goodbye to Hollywood. “American Idol” moves on to Las Vegas, where not everyone will hit the jackpot. Tonight, 10 singers from the Top 40 contestants perform, and five of them will get the ax. 8 p.m., Fox.

WEDNESDAY: The anxiety just never ends on “The Middle.” Poor Frankie (Patricia Heaton) wants to throw all her energy into her preparations for watching the Oscars, but she’s worried as heck that Brick (Atticus Shaffer) will get lost during his school trip to Chicago. 8 p.m., ABC.

THURSDAY: In the Season 2 finale of “Suits,” Harvey (Gabriel Macht) goes all out to derail the proposed merger with a powerful British firm - a strategy that puts him at odds with Jessica (Gina Torres). 10 p.m., USA.

FRIDAY: “Out There” is a new animated comedy about the misadventures of two high school outcasts living in a small town where they run face-first into “the wall of adolescence, the horrors of puberty, first loves, mortal enemies, local legends, and social ostracism.” 10:30 p.m., IFC.

SATURDAY: Just in case you missed it the first time around, “American Ninja Warrior” is back with a barrage of Season 4 highlights, including some previously unseen footage. 8 p.m., NBC.
