A&E, 10:00 pm ET
After five chilling seasons, this masterfully written and acted prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho" comes to a close with a series finale called "The Cord," doubtless a reference to the dysfunctional bond between Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother, Norma (Vera Farmiga). A&E is revealing almost nothing about this hour apart from a terse four-word story line: "Norman Bates comes home." Even so, there's a good chance you may sleep a little more fitfully after watching this.
Who Do You Think You Are?
TLC, 8:00 pm ET
The series closes out another season with an hour focused on Liv Tyler, the actress who gained many new fans via her performance as the brave warrior elf-maiden Arwen in Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" movie trilogy. She may have come to that role very naturally, because as she tries to unravel the complicated maternal line of her musician father, Steven Tyler, she uncovers ancestors who participated in some famous American battles.

Another pivotal part of the competition begins with the first night of the "Live Top 12 Performances," with Shania Twain as a guest adviser. Along with viewers who can cast votes, coaches and judges Alicia Keys, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani also listen to the dozen contestants who have made the cut. In Tuesday's telecast, the 10 determined to be "safe" will be revealed, with the other two vying to stay in the contest via the Instant Save.
Young & Hungry
FREEFORM, 8:00 pm ET
In the new episode "Young & Couchy," Sofia (Aimee Carrero) is understandably peeved when Gabi (Emily Osment) takes it upon herself to sell an ugly couch her roomie got from her boss, which Sofia took as a good sign professionally. As Gabi tries to set things right, Elliot (Rex Lee) insists Yolanda (Kym Whitley) go with him to a weight-loss group, where she reconnects with the rabbi from Elliot and Alan's wedding.
FOX, 8:00 pm ET
Riddle me this: The series returns for the home stretch of its third season with the new episode "Heroes Rise: How the Riddler Got His Name." That villainous alias finally is assumed by Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) as he goes off on his own, apart from Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), and causes problems for Bullock and Lucius Fox (Donal Logue, Chris Chalk). Gordon (Ben McKenzie) learns troubling information about his father's fate. James Remar guest stars.
