    Primetimer's editors break down what's new and noteworthy on television today.

    As far as late career comebacks go, Louis Anderson's turn as Christine Baskets has been one for the ages. What he'll do next remains to be seen, but in an interview before the shows cancellation, Anderson said, "If it ended now that would be the best ending." 

    SERIES FINALE: After four seasons, the acclaimed comedy drama Baskets is coming to an end. The series has been an awards magnet, with Louie Anderson winning a Best Supporting Actor Emmy for his role as Christine Baskets in 2016, followed by back-to-back nominations the following years. Zach Galifianakis has also been nominated for his dual role as Anderson's twin sons, Chip and Dale Baskets. 10:00 PM ET on FX
