Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:

8-10PM
SEASON FINALE: 24
(Fox, TV-14-V) We've already seen (a) the terrorist meltdown of a power plant, (b) the destruction of Air Force One and (c) the launch of a nuclear warhead. So where could the show possibly go to cap off the season?

"It's basically the destruction of the world, the apocalypse," jokes executive producer Howard Gordon of Day 4's two-hour season finale.

He won't reveal much, other than it "takes the show in a completely different direction." Also (and thankfully), Kim does not return. "She's still being chased by a cougar." -- Gilbert Cruz

Best of the rest

8-8:30PM
STILL STANDING
(CBS) But, apparently, not rocking. Richie Sambora channels Jon Bon Jovi and goes actor on us.

9-10PM
SEASON FINALE: LAS VEGAS
(NBC, TV-PG-V) Sorry, Richie. JBJ one-upped you with an hour-long show the same night. Tico, you're next.

9-10PM
SEASON FINALE: EVERWOOD
(The WB, TV-PG, D) Andy might move to Chicago!

9-10PM
SEASON PREMIERE: REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL
(HBO) Gumbel uncovers that new poker craze. Way to get on it early, Bryant.

9-10:30PM*
GUERRILLA: THE TAKING OF PATTY HEARST
(PBS) See Patty become Tania.
*check local listings

9-11PM
NICK & JESSICA'S TOUR OF DUTY
(ABC) Doing their part to make war even more unbearable.

11-11:30PM
MTV MOVIE AWARDS: FUNNIEST LIL' FILMS
(MTV) Before they hand out those buckets of golden popcorn on June 9, MTV gives us a compilation of hilarious movie parodies from past awards shows. Imagine William Shatner starring in "Seven" or the Brady Bunch in "A Few Good Men."

SYNDICATED
JEOPARDY!
It's OK to admit that you rooted for Utah native Ken Jennings while he won a boatload of moolah and became buddies with Alex Trebek during his 74-game winning streak. But now -- root for blood! Three days of tournament-style rounds among previous big winners will culminate in a $2 million contest against Jennings on Wednesday. It's every trivia geek for him/herself!
