Monday TV: Last Glimpse of ‘Lucifer’

LuciferIt’s that time of year when networks make decisions of what shows stay and which ones go. And all of a sudden, what would have been merely the third season finale of “Lucifer” (Fox, 8 p.m.) tonight is actually its last episode ever.

Same thing for the comedy “Superior Donuts” (CBS, 9 p.m.), which ends with an armed robbery. Inexplicably renewed for season three, though, is “Man with a Plan” (CBS, 8:30 p.m.).

“The Resident” (Fox, 9 p.m.) has its first season finale with Conrad calling in a favor; it’s been renewed for a second season.

Of course the normally royal-mad PBS isn’t going to let this week’s ceremony pass without some attention. So here’s the premiere of the nightly (!) “Royal Wedding Watch” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings).

We’re already halfway through the four-episode “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” (ABC, 8 p.m.) and Tonya Harding is still in it; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is out. Guest judge tonight is season 24 runner up David Ross.

It’s the semifinals on “The Voice” (NBC, 8 p.m.).

Monsters are the topic on “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction” (AMC, 10:30 p.m.) and Guillermo del Toro, Ridley Scott and Milla Jovovich become part of the conversation.

A new season starts for “Basketball Wives” (VH1, 9 p.m.) with recently single Evelyn showing off what she is calling her revenge body.

“Antiques Roadshow” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings) finds some ritzy stuff in Newport, R.I.

Keri Russell is “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” (NBC, 10 p.m.) with a trip to the Canary Islands.

In the second new episode of “This is Life Live” (TLC, 9 p.m.) in as many days, a mother meets the donor of her son’s heart.

Liv consumes a germaphobe’s brain on “iZombie” (The CW, 9 p.m.). Howie Mandel?

On “Elementary” (CBS, 10 p.m.), a Revolutionary War re-enactor is murdered.

Craig Landauer agrees to allow a select group of refugees to take a trip to town on “The Crossing” (ABC, 10 p.m.) (which has also been canceled).

Men on “The Terror” (AMC, 9 p.m.) learn what they’re willing to do to survive.

Tonight’s episode of “Supergirl” (The CW, 8 p.m.) has a Dylan title: “Shelter from the Storm.”

It’s fairy tales all night on Turner Classic Movies with “Hans Christian Andersen” (8 p.m.), “The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm” (10 p.m.), “The Slipper and the Rose” (12:30 p.m.), “Jack and the Beanstalk” (3 a.m.) and “The Wacky World of Mother Goose” (4:30 a.m.).

Earlier, it’s all swashbuckling with “Captain Kidd” (8:15 a.m.), “The King’s Thief” (9:45 a.m.), “The Sea Hawk” (11:15 a.m.), “Scaramouche” (1:30 p.m.), “Captain Blood” (3:30 p.m.) and “The Three Musketeers” (5:45 p.m.).

Game one of the Western conference finals of the NBA Playoffs has Golden State at Houston (TNT, 9 p.m.).
