Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Wednesday, May 15. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Riverdale (The CW, 8 p.m., third-season finale): The youths of Riverdale have endured a lot in their time on the air, including most recently the machinations of Edgar (one Chad Michael Murray) and his followers at The Farm. This finale, though? When it comes to Riverdalian misery, it looks like it could be on a completely different level.

Archie flexes, Jughead wears a hat, Riverdale Riversdles, and Charles Bramesco stands ready to recap it all.


Regular coverage

DuckTales (Disney, 3 p.m.)
Jane The Virgin (The CW, 9 p.m.)
What We Do In The Shadows (FX, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

MasterChef, “Celebrity Family Showdown” (Fox, 8 p.m.): Do you have any interest in seeing the women of Vanderpump Rules square off against the women of Jersey Shore in the MasterChef kitchen? If you answered “no,” I have great news for you: You can just skip that part and watch Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski go head-to-head as they competitively cook with their families.
