Cowboy siblings Jet and Cord, model couple Brent and Caite, or brothers Dan and Jordan: Which team will come out on top when multi-Emmy winner “The Amazing Race” presents it season finale? Phil Keoghan hosts. (CBS, 8 p.m.)


The doctor is in … in therapy, that is. On a new “House,” our hero (Hugh Laurie) is back on the couch of Dr. Nolan (guest star Andre Braugher), recounting a particularly tricky case: a patient with a mysterious illness and amnesia. (Fox, 8 p.m.) 


Parents with autistic children would go to the ends of the earth to help them, which is how a rural Texas couple and their son find themselves in the wilds of Mongolia in the 2009 documentary “The Horse Boy” on “Independent Lens.” (KCET, 10 p.m.) 


The best rock group to come out of Los Angeles … ever … period. The late Jim Morrison and his band mates are profiled in the documentary “The Doors: When You're Strange” on a new “American Masters.” Johnny Depp narrates. (KCET, 9 p.m.) 


Does anyone else find it disturbing that the actor who plays the holier-than-thou Jacob on “Lost” also portrays the unholier-than-thou Lucifer on “Supernatural”? Mark Pellegrino guest stars in the latter series' sixth-season finale. (KTLA, 9 p.m.) 


“MTV World Stage: Coldplay” features the U.K. rock outfit, led by singer Chris Martin, performing “Yellow,” “Fix You” and other hits in a 2009 concert in Tokyo. (VH1, 11 p.m.) 


Robots! Explosions! Megan Fox! More robots! More explosions! All that, and Shia LaBeouf and Josh Dudamel, in director Michael Bay's 2009 sequel “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” (Cinemax, 10 p.m.)


“The Real Robin Hood” includes a sneak peek at the upcoming movie starring Russell Crowe, while “The Legends of Robin Hood... With Olly Steeds” sends its host on a trek through Sherwood Forest. (History, 8 p.m. Tuesday; Discovery, 8 p.m. Thursday)


Zach Galifianakis, stroke those whiskers and ponder this: Should fans watch you with Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms in the 2009 hit “The Hangover,” or with some CGI guinea pigs in the 2009 kid-flick “G-Force”? (HBO, 8 p.m. and Starz, 9 p.m. Saturday)


Remember when Rob Lowe danced and sang with Snow White at the Academy Awards back in 1989? It’s time to let that go. Because Amy Poehler isn’t Snow White, and this isn’t the Oscars. This is “Parks and Recreation.” (NBC, 8:30 p.m. Thursday)
