TV Worth Watching

"Castle" (Monday on ABC at 10 p.m.)

This is another gigantic week for TV finales, including the "Mike & Molly" and "Castle" series finales, plus season finales for "Bates Motel," "NCIS," "Chicago Med," "NCIS: New Orleans," "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Chicago Fire," "The Middle," "The Goldbergs," Empire," "Modern Family," "Black-ish," "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," "The 100," "Grey's Anatomy," "Mom," "The Blacklist," "The Catch," "Grimm," "The Originals," "Shark Tanks," Banshee," "Saturday Night Live," "America's Funniest Home Videos," "The Simpsons," "Family Guy," "Bob's Burgers" and "Mr. Selfridge." Whew! And that's not even counting the two shows below.

On May 16, "Castle" is saying goodbye not just to Stana Katic's Detective Kate Beckett and Tamala Jones's Lanie Parish, who were already announced as leaving, but to the entire show, after eight seasons. Even though several stars (including Nathan Fillion, aka Richard Castle) were reportedly finalizing Season 9 contracts, ABC decided to cancel "Castle" after all. So this is it.

"Fear the Walking Dead" (Sunday on AMC at 9 p.m.)

FTWD is starting to get pretty good in its second season, but the slow slide in the ratings suggests it may be too little, too late for some fans. But you should consider catching up on DVR/On Demand before this Sunday's midseason finale. Season 2 of AMC's "Walking Dead" companion series has a total of 15 episodes this year, but they are doing the hiatus thing by splitting up the season. Episode 7, titled "Shiva," airs May 22 with this synopsis from AMC: "The family faces their biggest test yet; Nick, Madison, Travis and others try to stay close to each other."

"Survivor" (Wednesday on CBS at 8 p.m.)

Who will win the under-hyped Season 32, "Survivor: Kaho Rong": Aubry, Michele, Cydney, Tai, or Mark the Chicken? Find out in the big finale, plus reunion special, when they air May 18. #TeamMark or #TeamAubry
