“Fringe” (KASA-2 8 p.m.) FOX closes out the second season of its trippy sci-fi drama. Will it return for a third? Eh, maybe.

Friday 21

Memorial Tribute: Lena Horne (TCM 6 p.m.) TCM honors singer/actress Lena Horne with a triple feature of films: 1938’s The Duke Is Tops, 1943’s Cabin in the Sky and 1942’s Panama Hattie.

Zebraman (Sundance 7 p.m.) Japanese madman Takashi Miike’s balls-to-the-wall bonkers 2004 sci-fi flick is both a loving tribute to and a crazed parody of superhero flicks. In it, a failed father tries to escape reality by dressing up as his favorite childhood heroand is soon called upon to defeat evil alien invaders.

Saturday 22

Revolver Golden Gods Awards” (VH1 Classics 8 p.m.) Revolver, the world’s loudest rock magazine, hands out statues to famed hard rock and heavy metal acts. I’m guessing the black leather pants and skull T-shirt quotient in the room is gonna be through the roof.

Sunday 23

Seven Deadly Sins (LMN 6 p.m.) Author Robin Wasserman’s sex-obsessed teen lit series gets adapted as a TV mini-series. Think of it as “Desperate Housewives” for tweens.

Monday 24

“10 Things I Hate About You” (ABC Family 6 p.m.) ABC Family’s short-lived movie spin-off concludes its run with this Season 2 finale.

“The Bachelorette” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) Like the return of the red-breasted robin, the re-emergence of crappy reality shows is a clear indication that summer is upon us.

“Law & Order” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) It’s official, NBC has canceled its flagship legal drama, making this 20th season finale the last. Ouch. That means the show is stuck one season short of beating “Gunsmoke” as the longest-running drama in prime-time history.

Tuesday 25

TCM Spotlight: Race and Hollywood (TCM 6 p.m.) TCM explores the role of Native Americans in Hollywood starting with the 1914 Cecil B. DeMille film Squaw Man and continuing with three modern films starring Iñupiat/French Canadian/Cree actress Irene Bedard: Lakota Woman: Siege at Wounded Knee, Smoke Signals and Naturally Native.

“Dancing With the Stars” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) “DWTS” polishes off its last cha-cha with a two-hour season finale. Gee, I wonder if Kate will drop by for tea and sympathy.

Wednesday 26

“American Idol” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) “American Idol” ends its comparatively dull ninth season with a 127-minute episode. I guess 130 minutes would have been excessive.

“Saturday Night Live Presents: Sports All-Stars” (KOB-4 7 p.m.) Because sports stars are always the most hilarious hosts on “SNL.”
