SERIES PREMIERE: Author Tionna Smalls works with young women to help them find meaningful relationships on a new daily talk show, the excellently titled “Girl, Get Your Mind Right” (MTV at 6 p.m.).
FINALE WATCH: “Rules of Engagement” (CBS at 8:30) Status: Canceled. After all these years, CBS’s most puzzling yet reliable midseason replacement show has finally come to an end — with exactly 100 episodes for syndication, so looks like the joke’s on us. In the Season 7 finale, Jennifer and Adam are trying to get married, but Brenda steals the spotlight by going into labor.
SERIES PREMIERE: Fox ordered the comedy “The Goodwin Games” (Fox at 8:30) to series last year with high hopes, but then reversed course, cutting the order to just seven episodes and burning it off in May. The show stars Becki Newton, T.J. Miller and Scott Foley as three squabbling, estranged siblings who will inherit $20 million from their deceased father — as long as they adhere to his wishes.
Mel Brooks is notoriously private (he’s never authorized a biography) but submits to a profile on “American Masters — Mel Brooks: Make a Noise” (WETA and MPT at 9), featuring interviews with the comedian.
FINALE WATCH: “Mike & Molly” (CBS at 9:30) Status: Renewed. This Chuck Lorre comedy has been a steady performer for the network and will return for Season 4. In the meantime, the title characters have important news to tell each other, but several obstacles stand in the way, including a tornado that descends on Chicago.
SERIES PREMIERE: ABC has had good luck with imported Canadian dramas during the summer and kicks off another with the debut of “Motive” (ABC at 10). In each episode, a killer is revealed in the beginning and then the show goes through flashbacks to find out why the crime happened, courtesy of single mom and detective Angie Flynn.
FINALE WATCH: “Hawaii Five-0” (CBS at 10) Status: Renewed. The third season finale sends McGarrett to visit Wo Fat in prison, where he makes a stunning discovery; meanwhile, the CIA decides Five-0 is officially in charge of finding a dangerous killer who’s running around Hawaii. While the team scrambles, an innocent Kono winds up going on the run when she’s suspected of murder.
RETURNING SHOW: We see the end of Cathy’s (Laura Linney) journey on “The Big C: Hereafter” (Showtime at 10), as the drama ends with a four-part miniseries about the mom with terminal cancer.
FINALE WATCH: Norman brings Emma to a dance as the first season of the creepy “Bates Motel” (A&E at 10) comes to an end.
