Close behind it is “Supernatural” (The CW, 8 p.m.), ending its 13th season.

“Life in Pieces” (CBS, 9 and 9:30 p.m.) ends its third season with a pair of episodes. In the first, Sophia wanting to get a second piercing; then Samantha’s birthday goes a different direction.

On “Siren” (Freeform, 8 p.m.) Donna comes ashore with two members of her colony to bring Ryn home.
