The new True TV Podcast is here! Featuring special guest Cinnamon Brown, local weatherman of note: CW Podcasts, Soundcloud and (eventually) iTunes. ---

What’s new tonight:
The Middle, Modern Family, Cougar Town, Happy Endings (ABC) Season Finales: All funny, proven comedy performers on Wednesdays—so, naturally, ABC will move two of them to other nights next season. Good luck on Tuesdays, Cougar Town and Happy Endings; say hi to Better Off Ted when you get there … Oh, you can’t.

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior (CBS) Series Finale: Forrest Whitaker and Janeane Garofalo never had a chance—a bland spin-off of Criminal Minds isn’t quite the same sell as a bland spin-off of CSI or NCIS. The only CBS show duller than CMSB is Flashpoint, which gets a pass for being (ack!) Canadian.

American Idol (Fox) Season Finale: The only way I could give less of a fuck about this would be if Oprah were involved.

Also new tonight:
Law & Order: Los Angeles (NBC); The Ultimate Fighter
(Spike); Extreme Couponing, Spouse vs. House (TLC); The Real World, The Electric Barbarellas (MTV); South Park, Workaholics (Comedy Central); Conan (TBS) 

Preview: Happy Endings goes out for the season face-down/ass-up …
