    After ten years, nine seasons, and two different networks, Last Man Standing officially comes to an end tonight on FOX. The one-hour series finale will see the entire Baxter family, led by patriarch Mike (Tim Allen), gather for an emotional goodbye as they set out on their next great adventure.

    Also today: Jackson Avery drops a bomb on his Grey’s Anatomy colleagues, HBO Max wraps up two high-profile reality TV series, and the organized crime wars continue in Gomorrah Season 4. Here’s what’s new and noteworthy on TV this Thursday:

    SERIES FINALE: The Baxters say goodbye in back-to-back episodes of Last Man Standing, the ABC sitcom that received a second life on FOX in 2018. In the finale, Mike finally finishes his ten-year renovation on his truck, only to discover that it’s been stolen. 9:00 PM ET on FOX

    COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON: Just a few months after Gomorrah’s third season arrived on HBO Max, the streamer is adding all 12 episodes of Season 4, which originally aired in Italy in 2019. The new season turns the spotlight on Genny (Salvatore Esposito), the lone survivor of the Savastano dynasty. Watch trailer. Streaming on HBO Max

    NEW EPISODE: Following his reunion with April (Sarah Drew), Jackson Avery (Jesse Williams) prepares to leave Seattle in his final episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Williams has been on the medical drama for 12 seasons. Watch preview. 9:00 PM ET on ABC

    SEASON FINALE: As Andy Dehnart writes for Primetimer today, streaming has officially embraced the reality TV competition, a genre once thought better suited to linear TV. Case in point: The Big Shot with Bethenny drops its Season 1 finale today, in which one skilled competitor scores the promotion of a lifetime and assumes the role of Bethenny Frankel’s second-in-command. Streaming on HBO Max

    SEASON FINALE: Yet another HBO Max champion is crowned in the final episode of Ellen’s Next Great Designer, Ellen DeGeneres and Scott Foley’s furniture design competition series. Streaming on HBO Max

    SPECIAL PRESENTATION: Finn the Human (Jeremy Shada) and Jake the Dog (John DiMaggio) reunite in Adventure Time: Distant Lands — Together Again, which sees the duo rediscover their brotherly bond as they complete an important quest. Watch trailer. Streaming on HBO Max

    SEASON FINALE: Comedy puppetmaster Robert Smigel returns with one last shot of absurdist parody as Let’s Be Real airs its Season 1 finale at a special time. Watch preview. 8:30 PM ET on FOX
