    Tonight brings the penultimate episode of one reality competition, the season finale of another, a new installment of Ken Burns' exceptional new documentary series, and an in-depth look at college football in America. Here are the highlights

    LIVE FINALS: This is the last night of live performances on America's Got Talent. With only ten performers remaining and $1,000,000 on the line, the pressure couldn't be any higher.

    SEASON FINALE: Are the remaining couples ready to take things to the next level? Is one night in a fantasy suite enough time to make one of the biggest decisions of their lives? Find out as Bachelor in Paradise airs its two-hour season finale. 8:00 PM ET on ABC

    NEW EPISODE: In The Hillbilly Shakespeare, Ken Burns' Country Music examines the short but impactful life of Hank Williams, who reigned as "The King of Country Music" before dying tragically at the age of 30. 8:00 PM ET on PBS

    SERIES PREMIERE: As if taking a cue from Ken Burns, ESPN is rolling out its own massive documentary series.
