The Crazy Ones (9pm, CBS) - In the Season 1 finale, Simon’s team come up with a radical way to save a library, and Gordon serves as the campaign’s reluctant poster boy. Later, the ad agency faces a buyout and Simon’s ex-wife has the deciding vote.

Parenthood (10pm, NBC) - Haddie (What? Who is this Haddie person of whom you speak?!) returns in the Season 5 closer, which also boasts a reunion for Amber and Ryan – and maybe for Sarah and Hank, too.
