The title is within reach for those still in the contest in the new two-hour episode "Top 4 Perform" ... and since they've gotten this far, the decision of which participant to eliminate clearly is a tough one.

Ryan Seacrest is the host.
The Casual Vacancy
Adapted from a best-selling novel by J.K.

The new episode "Mystery Monkeys of Shangri-La" profiles a self-styled society of recently found primates that have banded together to deal with the environmental challenges of the Himalayas.

However, it also takes cooperation among all of the members for them to survive.
Shades of "Grease" and "Hairspray" are evident in the new episode "Dance Party USA," as Erica (Hayley Orrantia) heads toward her goal of dancing on a television program. However, her dream is thwarted when she catches decidedly non-telegenic pink eye from Barry (Troy Gentile).

What they discover along the way, though, could imperil everyone concerned.
The new episode "The Number of Rats" continues a story begun on "Chicago Fire," as Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T and Danny Pino cross over from "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
