Frankie (Patricia Heaton) tries to broker friendships between Brick (Atticus Shaffer) and other young attendees during a school field trip in "Operation Infiltration." Axl (Charlie McDermott) tries to get on Devin's (guest star Gia Mantegna) good side by playing "perfect brother" to Sue (Eden Sher).

Melissa & Joey
The hit romantic comedy wraps up its final season with a series finale that sends both Mel and Joe (Melissa Joan Hart, Joey Lawrence) into a cold panic as she receives some startling news that directly affects her imminent senate run. Does that news involve diapers and a stork? ABC Family isn't saying. Meanwhile, Lennox and Zander (Taylor Spreitler, Sterling Knight) have personal epiphanies after a close brush with death, and Ryder (Nick Robinson) gets his Navy orders.
America's Next Top Model
The search begins anew with Cycle 22, which opens with the rather self-descriptive "The Guys and Girls Make It to Hollywood." The beautiful ones who make the cut are determined here by the way they model swimwear, but they also have members of the public to contend with as they compete to land spots in the contest. Tyra Banks is back in her traditional role as host, also serving as a judge along with Miss J and public-relations veteran Kelly Cutrone.
"A Little Southern Flare" goes into one of the rounds of competition in this new episode, but getting to that stage first involves using "mystery box" ingredients to make a flambe. The winner of that contest will be safe from elimination, and also will get to dictate the Southern dish that the others must prepare. Host Gordon Ramsay weighs in on the results along with fellow judges Graham Elliot and Christina Tosi.
America's Got Talent
As popular a summer entry as this show is, it's just one variation of the format around the globe. Highlights from many others are compiled in the new episode "World's Got Talent," which shows that unusual abilities and performance skills aren't exclusive to the United States. Nick Cannon hosts the hour, which includes clips from "Britain's Got Talent" -- on which former "America's" regulars David Hasselhoff and Piers Morgan were judges in earlier times.
Life on the Reef
The new miniseries exploring the history and possible future of Australia's Great Barrier Reef concludes with "Episode Three," detailing how human and animal residents alike brace for a cyclone as it targets the North Queensland coast. Expectedly, the eventual devastation is powerful and far-reaching ... but inevitably, the cyclone season subsides and the region regains its more tranquil status. Not only does it survive, it thrives in many ways.
Shades of "Grease" and "Hairspray" are evident in "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). Adam (Sean Giambrone) tries to emulate Pops' (George Segal) gambling skills at school, but only ends up betting away his toys as a result. Jeff Garlin and Wendi McLendon-Covey also star.
Melissa Peterman's former sitcom co-star Reba McEntire ("Reba") guest stars in the season finale "It's a Nice Day for a Wheeler Wedding," which finds Bonnie's (Peterman) wedding to Brad (Peter Porte) collapsing into ruins after the bridezilla's exhausted wedding planner quits. Her best friend (McEntire) comes to the rescue, but she may have a hidden agenda. Elsewhere, Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) prepares a wedding speech designed to unite big brother Danny (Derek Theler) with true-love Riley (Chelsea Kane).
After Uncle Si has a brush with death, he decides to create a bucket list, then asks the guys to help him cross his dream items off it in the new episode "The Ducket List." Meanwhile, Kay tries to prove to a skeptical Alan and Willie that she really did graduate from high school.
Jay (Ed O'Neill) celebrates a birthday that turns eventful for many reasons in "Grill, Interrupted." Phil (Ty Burrell) can't wait for his gift to Jay to be seen, and Claire and Mitch (Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson) offer a present that really isn't one: the payback of a loan Jay made to them. Gloria (Sofia Vergara) decides to give Manny and Luke (Rico Rodriguez, Nolan Gould) an education on the subject of drinking. Eric Stonestreet also stars.
Jeff and his team discover that they didn't manage to leave some personnel issues behind them as they settle into their new Hollywood office in a new episode called "Say Hello to Hollywood." With Joe off his A-game and Vanina struggling to stay focused, Jeff struggles to keep his current clients happy.
In "You Say You Want an Evolution," the first of two new back-to-back episodes, Molly (Halle Berry) is stunned to find her physical being transforming into something unknown, while Richter (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is visited by his ex-wife (guest star Melina Kanakaredes). Then, in "The Other," Shepherd (guest star David Morrissey) may be the key to establishing peace between humans and hybrids. Hilarie Burton also guest stars. Grace Gummer also stars.
