– Hank and Evan have it out when Evan learns Hank knew about Paige’s problem. Elsewhere, Wilmer Valderrama guest stars as an art collector who passes out when he finally sees a piece of art he’s been pursuing for years, and everyone finds out what Divya has been up to.

10PM | FX
Rescue Me
– Colleen gets married, and when Gavins and booze come together … insanity, of course, ensues.

Chef Robert goes to Scrimmages, a sports bar in Delaware that’s fumbling because the four owners are fighting with each other.

10 and 10:30PM | A&E
Storage Wars

– In the season two finale of Hot in Cleveland (10PM, TV Land), it’s Elka’s (Betty White) wedding day, but she’s MIA after her bachelorette party, which included frat boys and an iguana.
