Survivor: One World, 8 p.m.
This started out as a season that was physically painful to watch. But once Colton left, things picked up considerably, and when Kim emerged as a powerful genius, it got really good. Good luck tonight, gang. (Reunion show is at 10.)
Celebrity Apprentice, 9 p.m., NBC
It was inevitable that Teresa would be fired last week, but I have to say the Lisa offing took me by surprise. Maybe the guy in charge of the bleep button begged Trump to get rid of her, as he had developed carpal tunnel syndrome while managing all her foul-mouthed tantrums. Or maybe they had depleted the tissue budget and the chronic crier had to be cut because of that. Or maybe Trump just got tired of her ^&%$*&#@. At any rate, when we open tonight we have one more head to roll (I predict Arsenio), setting us up for a Clay v. Aubrey smack-down that will have the gay world in a shambles. Aubrey will win. Her eyelashes demand it.
Desperate Housewives, 9 p.m., ABC
And so the ladies of Wisteria Lane bid their final farewell, as this once groundbreaking show takes it leave. The first season was a masterpiece, but after that it was hard to maintain and I quit in the middle of Season 3. But thanks for the memories. Fitting to end it on Mother’s Day (you did remember it’s Mother’s Day, right?)
