happyendingsABC hasn’t treated the six fast-talking friends of this Chicago-set comedy very welI. They started off on Tuesdays, disappeared for weeks, reappeared on Sundays and then settled in on Fridays. Listen up, network programmers: Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr. and Casey Wilson are a simply a-mah-zing ensemble and deserve much better than this. Renew! Renew! Renew! (Here’s hoping it’s a) season finale at 8 p.m. Friday on ABC

Another quriky sitcom that excels due to its top-notch cast. Jane Levy stars as Tessa Altman, a teenager who moved to suburbia from New York City with her dad (Jeremy Sisto). And while the residents of Chatswin (including Cheryl Hines, Ana Gasteyer, Alan Tudyk and Allie Grant) at first appeared to be odd/cute suburbanites, as the second season progressed, they’ve gotten downright strange. Still, this is a clever, well-written comedy, that ABC would be smart to renew. One-hour season finale 8 p.m. Wednesday on ABC.

The season finales of this great drama, starring Timothy Olyphant as Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, always deliver. Remember the fates of Robert Quarels (Neal McDonough) in season three, or Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale) in season two? After (mostly) resolving the case of Drew Thompson, season four is headed toward a major showdown between ultra smooth Raylan and mobster Nicky Augustine (Mike O’Malley, lightyears away from his kindly father on “Glee.). Oh, and you can always count on Boyd and Ava Crowder (Walton Goggins and Joelle Carter) being up to no good.

Buckle up. Quite literally anything could happen. Season finale, 10 p.m. on FX.
