Remote Possibilities: Farewell, 'Golden Boy'

Lots of season finales Tuesday -- and summer gets a head start with the return of "So You Think You Can Dance" (8 p.m., Fox 29).

One finale really will be final, as CBS has reportedly opted against renewal of its midseason drama "Golden Boy" (10 p.m., CBS 3). But we already know that Detective Walter Clark (Theo James) will eventually become police commissioner (and that he'll still look nothing like Tom Selleck when it happens) and that something bad eventually happens to his partner, Detective Don Owen (Chi McBride). I'll be sorry to see it go -- only CBS could afford to let go of 8.3 million viewers a week  -- but I'm not sorry I won't have to see McBride's character taken down. He made the show for me.

Other finales include "New Girl" (9 p.m., Fox 29) and "The Mindy Project" (9:30 p.m., Fox 29), "NCIS"  (8 p.m., CBS 3) ending its 10th season and "NCIS: Los Angeles" (9 p.m., CBS 3).
