What to Watch: 05/16/2016

There’s a bevy of shows out there tonight, but the big one is the series finale of Mike & Molly.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Mike & Molly [CBS, 8:30p]
Melissa McCarthy’s CBS comedy comes to its end, featuring one last showdown between Joyce and Peggy and what we hope are flashbacks (and not previously aired clips) as the character reminisce on their past.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Mike & Molly [CBS, 8p]
The hour-long series finale promises trips to the psychic, praying in churches and of course one last fight between Joyce and Peggy. Hoping for some closure and lots of laughs in the send-off for Mike & Molly.

JASON’S PICK:
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee [TBS, 10:30p]
I hate to be the lemon following two gold bars, but I’m gonna go with Samantha Bee’s news coverage, the perfect bookend to John Oliver’s Sunday takedown. This week she takes aim at Super PACs.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Is it wedding bells on the second season finale of the CW’s Jane the Virgin? Only her hairdresser knows for sure. Because she’d probably want to get her hair done before such a big event. Just sayin’!
  • More viruses and time travel on Syfy’s 12 Monkeys, one of the two best movie-inspired series on tonight.
  • It’s a post-mother world for the other one, Bates Motel.
  • Sam Bee’s fellow Daily Show-alum and husband’s show, The Detour, is quietly continuing (also on TBS).
