    Primetimer's managing editor Joe Reid breaks down what's new and noteworthy on television in his daily TV Today column.

    In what has become an tradition, CBS is airing a primetime James Corden "Carpool Karaoke" special tonight. This will be Corden's fourth annual CK special, all of which have combined greatest-hits clips from past segments, plus at least one new, never-before seen extended segment.

    The first Carpool Karaoke primetime special featured Jennifer Lopez; the second one had Lopez again, joined by Katy Perry; the third featured Christina Aguilera; and the one we're about to experience stars extra special guest Cline Dion.

    Carpool Karaoke, like Corden himself, is divisive among late night observers and fans. Letterman-aligned purists tend to hate the game-ification that hosts like Corden and Jimmy Fallon have brought to the time period. Corden, though, has correctly figured out that the path to late night success now lies in viral videos that  nexcan thebe shared the next morning, and few late-night segments have been more ripe for viral success than Carpool Karaoke.

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Everybody better brush up on the lyrics to "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" in time for tonight's Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2019 with Celine Dion. Few music stars can bring the weird and the wonderful at the same time as well as Celine can. 10:00 PM ET on CBS

    SERIES FINALE: This season's ten episodes of ABC's The Fix are going to be all that we get since the series wasn't renewed for Season 2. But if you're looking for answers about the murder of Jessica Myer, they will be revealed on tonight's finale. Robin Tunney stars in the series based on Marcia Clark's novel. 10:00 PM ET on ABC

    SEASON PREMIERE: FOX's tune-naming game show Beat Shazam kicks off its third season, and, yes, Jamie Foxx is back as host. He's currently the only Academy Award winner hosting a game show where pairs of friends try to identify popular songs faster than a notoriously quick iPhone app. Jamie's daughter Corinne Foxx co-stars as the deejay, and the season premiere pits teams of teachers against each other, because Jamie Foxx will be damned if Jeopardy is the only show that's gonna do an all-teachers edition. 8:00 PM ET on FOX

    SEASON FINALE: The season finale of Legends of Tomorrow sees our titular legends on a mission to find Ray (Brandon Routh) that also results in uncovering Neron's plan. Which means it's time to go big or go home or save the world. (Maybe go big AND save the world and THEN go home to the world that you saved?) 8:00 PM ET on The CW
