Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Tuesday, May 23. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Fox, 8 p.m.): Tuesday is playing host to a bunch of finales. On Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s hourlong episode, Jake and Rosa try to expose Gina Gershon’s Lieutenant Hawkins, Ryan Phillippe guest stars as a Gina love interest, and Jason Mantzoukas is back as Pimento.


Great News (NBC, 8 p.m.): Or you could head over to NBC, where Great News finishes up its inaugural season with the arrival of a visitor—Greg’s Gram—who has the power to threaten the Breakdown team.

Regular coverage

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
The Flash (The CW, 8 p.m.): Season finale
WWE SmackDown (USA, 8 p.m.)
iZombie (The CW, 9 p.m.)
The Americans (FX, 10 p.m.)


Wild cards

Casual (Hulu): Hulu’s comedy executive-produced by Jason Reitman is back for a third season of Los Angeles-set self-searching, complete with storytelling classes. The new episodes will feature Judy Greer, who is always a welcome presence.

Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King (Netflix): The Daily Show’s Hasan Minhaj, who recently answered our 11 Questions, is the latest comedian to release a Netflix special. In Homecoming King, Minhaj plays his hometown of Davis, California, to discuss his upbringing. “My dad’s from that generation like a lot of immigrants where he feels like if you come to this country you’re going to endure some racism,” he says. “But for me, like a lot of us I was born here, so I actually have the audacity of equality.”
