FINALE WATCH: It takes three grueling hours to wrap up this season of “The Bachelor” (ABC at 8 p.m.). Before the final rose is handed out, the two remaining bachelorettes are introduced to Juan Pablo’s family and they each go on a final solo date. Also on the show for some reason: bachelors and bachelorettes from seasons past.

For the first night in its new time slot, “Bones” (Fox at 8) has Booth and CIA agent Danny Beck in hot pursuit of an Afghan terrorist after a CIA informant is murdered.

When Lily disappears in the middle of an argument on “How I Met Your Mother” (CBS at 8), Marshall enlists the help of Ted and Barney to find where she went.

Blind auditions continue on this two-hour episode of “The Voice” (NBC at 8).

The special “Heirs to the Dare” (Discovery at 9) follows the lives of three present-day daredevils as they attempt stunts in the spirit of yesterday’s legendary daredevils, such as Evel Knievel.

Joe, Emma and Mandy are still trying to adapt to their new life at the compound on “The Following” (Fox at 9), while Ryan is trying to track down Joe’s mentor.

SERIES PREMIERE: J.J. Abrams’s latest, “Believe” (NBC at 10), is about a 10-year-old girl (played by Johnny Sequoyah) with supernatural powers and the prison inmate chosen to protect her. In Friday’s Post, TV critic Hank Stuever called it “a medium-concept, briskly stylish, slightly sci-fi drama.” It moves to its regular time slot at 9 on Sunday, March 16.

If you aren’t ready to completely let go of Juan Pablo just yet, you’re in luck! Following the finale, ABC is giving you “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” (10), a live discussion of what just went down and also where we learn who the next star of “The Bachelorette” will be.

RETURNING SHOW: Back for a second round, “The People’s Couch” (Bravo at 11:30) takes cameras into everyday American homes and tapes families as they watch drama-filled Bravo television.

Actress Kristen Bell and comedian Steve Harvey are on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (NBC at 11:35), with music from Demi Lovato.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) stops by the “Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35), with a performance from Little Mix.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” (ABC at 11:35) heads to SXSW and talks to actor Seth Rogen and rapper Snoop Dogg with a musical performance from White Denim.
