Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, July 26. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Nashville (CMT, 9 p.m.): It’s last call at the Bluebird: After six seasons, 124 episodes, and roughly as many plot twists, Nashville is coming to an end. And it means it this time, not like all those times Deacon tried to kick the bottle—or like when ABC canceled the show in 2016 and CMT swept in to save it. As the show prepares to hang its Nudie suit up one last time, Rayna Jaymes is dead, Juliette Barnes is fleeing a cult, and, jeez, Avery’s still skulking around? How is this still the same show we talked about with Connie Britton all those years ago?

Regular coverage

Trial & Error (NBC, 9 and 9:30 p.m.)

Wild card

Swedish Dicks (Pop, 9 and 9:30 p.m.): Peter Stormare and Johan Glans return as television’s most lovable unlicensed Scandinavian detectives. But will Keanu Reeves make an encore appearance as deceased former stuntman Tex Johnson? Probably not, but there are guys dressed as Elvis, Robin Hood, and Frankenstein’s monster in this season premiere—and probably a few more offhand penis jokes.
