(ALL TIMES ET)

8PM | ABC
The Middle
– Axl texts a girl to ask her to the prom, and she accepts. The problem: His text went to the wrong girl, and his parents insist that he either take the girl who accepted, or tell her – in person – that he doesn’t want to be her date. Meanwhile, Frankie and Mike find Brick’s new one-man show entertaining … the first time they see it. Not so much after that.

8PM | FOX
American Idol
Lady Gaga serves as a mentor as the top four sing the songs of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, who penned Elvis Presley hits like “Hound Dog,” “Jailhouse Rock” and “Don’t,” as well as other classics like “Kansas City,” “Yakety Yak” and “Stand By Me.” In other words, great music, but yet another not-so-contemporary theme that makes Idol seem out of touch. Meanwhile, it’s a very Gaga night in primetime (see below) …

10PM | NBC

(ALL TIMES ET)

10PM | FX – 2ND SEASON FINALE
Justified
– The finale of what has been a fantastic, Emmy-worthy sophomore season is called “Bloody Harlan,” and if you think that refers to battle, right you are. Tensions between Boyd (Walt Goggins) and the Bennetts reach a boiling point, and pretty much everyone in town has a weapon in his or her hand. And, though Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) and Winona (Natalie Zea) were planning to skip town and leave the craziness behind, a missing person case drags the lawman back into the thick of the war, which is going to end with more than one major character taking a bullet.

8PM | FOX

10PM | NBC

10PM | MTV
The Real World
Heather‘s plan for getting over Dustin? Making out with Nany. Meanwhile, Naomi takes a pregnancy test.

10PM | COMEDY CENTRAL
South Park
– Just like Comedy Central, the Special Ed department at the elementary school decides to launch a comedy awards show, with Jimmy as host. But things turn serious when someone makes a joke about the Germans not having a sense of humor.

10PM | TLC – SERIES PREMIERE
Spouse vs. House
– Couples who are feeling a little skint get everything they need to perform some nifty renovations in this new home makeover series. The catch? One half of the couple has to move out temporarily and trust the other half to do all the work.

Worth flipping to during commercials:
– The final four are in Morocco, where they have to balance tea trays on their heads while dancing on America’s Next Top Model (9PM, The CW);

– Cooper and Fickler are caught up in the case of a death row inmate who’s demanding a retrial based on Fickler’s evidence on Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (10PM, CBS);
– Sure, they can whip up fancy food, but how will the Top Chef Masters (10PM, Bravo) do when they have to work the drive-thru of a fast food joint?;
The Electric Barbarellas (11PM, MTV) is yet another “making the band” reality series.

And the late-night line-up:
Conan (11PM, TBS): Eva Mendes;
