BRAINDEAD (9PM, CBS – 2 hours)
Season Finale: The biggest mystery surrounding tonight’s two-hour finale isn’t so much whether or not Laurel will be able to drive the bugs from peoples’ brains, but rather will this end up being a season, or series finale.
2017 MISS AMERICA COMPETITION (9PM, FOX)
Chris Harrison and Sage Steele host the legendary* pageant, which celebrates its 96th year, in Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall. Judges include Mark Cuban, Gabby Douglas, Sara Foster, Laura Marano, Cole Swindell and Sharlene Wells Hawkes. (Editor’s Note: The ABC PR flack responsible for writing up the above description needs to seriously take a moment and look up the definition of “legendary.”)

Alicia and Madison work to unite two competing factions. Meanwhile, Nick draws upon skills from his past to take on a new role at the colonia.
THE LAST SHIP (9PM, TNT)
Season Finale: According to TNT, “The battle for America reaches its climactic conclusion.” According to the TV Addict, said “conclusion” might be a bit of a misnomer considering the show was just renewed thru season 5!
MASTERS OF SEX (10PM, Showtime)
Season Premiere: What MASTERS OF SEX lacks in “AFFAIR” levels of buzz it makes up for in spades with storylines that actually go somewhere! Case in point, season 4 begins with Masters and Johnson searching for purpose after their fallout and looking to work to save them as their personal lives crash down around them.
THE STRAIN (10PM, FX)
The Occido Lumen is stolen and Setrakian and Fet search for it; Gus and Angel try to keep a secret houseguest from a police sweep; and Quinlan’s reasons for vengeance is unearthed.
