    For a season that started relatively slowly — the big drama in the season premiere was Ramona boosting some lobsters from a party to bring back to the uninvited Dorinda — we're now at the end, feeling bruised and battered after Bethenny's explosive outburst at LuAnn a couple weeks ago. The reverberations of that argument, and the truths Bethenny spewed forth (She got LuAnn rehab for free! She prevented LuAnn from driving a boat drunk and killing her friends!) promise to be far-reaching, all the more so because LuAnn couldn't attend this season's reunion because she was back in rehab.

    SEASON FINALE: There will still be the reunions after this week, but Lu-less as they'll be, if you're looking for one last Bethenny/Lu Ann fight on The Real Housewives of New York City, tonight is your last chance for a while. Meanwhile, the attention seems to have shifted to Tinsley, whose relationships to Scott and to money are currently under suspicion. 9:00 PM ET on Bravo

    SERIES FINALE: Alas, the fourth season finale of the CBS sitcom Life in Pieces will be its final one, as the series was cancelled back in May. Tonight, it's back-to-back episodes to close out the series, as each of the Short family members enters a new chapter in their lives. Take the time to check out one of TV's most talented ensemble casts, including Dianne Wiest, James Brolin, Colin Hanks, Zoe Lister-Jones, Tom Sadoski, Angelique Cabral and Betsy Brandt. 9:00 PM ET on CBS

    SPECIAL EPISODE: Tonight's episode marks the 10-year anniversary of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, the Andy Cohen's frequently delightful talk show, where the Real Housewives and legit celebrities cross paths and share a few cocktails. For tonight's celebration, Chrissy Tiegen is booked to appear, as well as a performance by Countess LuAnn, which ought to be a real time. 10:00 PM ET on Bravo

    NEW EPISODE: Reelz once again goes behind the narrative of a screen classic to get the true story on tonight's The Real Story of … Serpico. The film version starred Al Pacino as a crusading, corruption-exposing cop. The Real Story Of… will look to the real Frank Serpico for the true tale. 9:00 PM ET on Reelz
