On the conclusion of two-part series “Kind Hearted Woman” (WETA and MPT at 9), which looks at the repercussions of child sexual abuse on Native American reservations, a woman goes through a custody battle with her ex-husband.

Another celeb leaves “Dancing With the Stars” (ABC at 9), though hopefully this time it won’t be because of an injury, as with Dorothy Hamill’s exit last week. But first, Demi Lovato performs before the contestants get the bad news on results night.

“Volunteer work” isn’t high on Mindy’s list of priorities, but she’s forced to reexamine that when she starts dating a minister on “The Mindy Project” (Fox at 9:30).

It’s your last chance to watch “Smash” (NBC at 10) on a Tuesday night, as the all-suffering drama starts its Saturday night burn-off this weekend. Anyway, Ivy is extremely unhappy when Leigh is cast in the “Bombshell” musical, and Derek makes a suspicious discovery about Jimmy.

McKenzie gets involved with a case on “Golden Boy” (CBS at 10) when she realizes bullets at the crime scene match the ones that killed her brother.
