Remote Possibilities: Farewell, 'Golden Boy'

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

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).

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
