The Americans (10 p.m., FX) — Can a television show about Russian spies be an American treasure? Yes. And that’s why fans of this excellent FX series will be in mourning tomorrow. Everything comes to a head in the last episode of the series' sixth and final season, with Philip and Elizabeth (and Stan, of course) all facing choices that will change their lives forever. There are so many great performances tonight, as always, but Noah Emmerich (Stan) is the MVP of the finale. (Did you know about the couple of real-life spies who inspired the show?)

Also on tonight . . .

MasterChef (8 p.m., Fox) — Tonight’s premiere has three contestants from the Triangle competing: Juni Cuevas of Raleigh, Hope McFarland of Clayton and Jody Rhodes of Four Oaks. The show will have a slightly different format this season, similar to what we see on "The Voice": judges (Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Aaron Sanchez) will each pick eight cooks for their respective teams and will mentor those cooks throughout the competition. Tune in to see if our locals make it to one of those three teams — or check back here tomorrow for an update.

American Ninja Warrior (8 p.m., NBC) — The obstacle course competition show has its Season 10 premiere.

Reverie (10 p.m., NBC) — A new thriller series in which a former hostage negotiator and expert on human behavior (Sarah Shahi) must save people lost in a virtual reality program.
