“The Tudors” was never quite the same after Anne Boleyn, played by the beguiling Natalie Dormer, lost her head at the end of Season 2. But she's back, as a not-so-blithe spirit, for the pulpy period drama's series finale. (Showtime, 9 p.m.)


In the wake of WWII, a conflict arose on the Korean peninsula that remains unresolved to this day. U.S. service members recall their part in the Cold War-era struggle in the new documentary “Unforgettable: The Korean War.” (KCET, 10 p.m.)


His name is – or rather, was – Earl. Now, Jason Lee returns to the small screen, as Det. Dwight Hendricks, in the new series “Memphis Beat.” Alfre Woodard also stars in this Southern-fried cop drama set in the home of the blues. (10 p.m. TNT)


The new documentary “Harp Dreams” spotlights the triennial USA International Harp Competition, a 15-day event drawing some of the world's best young harpists. So much harp music, you'll think you've died and gone to heaven. (KCET 9:30 p.m.)


We thought “Futurama” was a thing of the past, but huzzah! Bender and the Planet Express crew – and the original voice cast – are blasting off for more misadventures as the animated sci-fi spoof returns. (Comedy Central, 10 and 10:30 p.m.)


Fans of “Party Down” may have wondered what ever happened to costar Jane Lynch … a little show called “Glee,” that's what happened. But she's back to reprise her role in a guest spot on the catering comedy's season finale. (Starz, 10 p.m.)


A honeymoon in a tropical paradise? Sounds like “A Perfect Getaway.” Milla Jovovich, Steve Zahn and Timothy Olyphant star in this nasty, brutish 2009 B-movie thriller from writer-director David Twohy (“Pitch Black”). (Cinemax, 10 p.m.)


What's a game show without a good sliming? Tune in to see smarty-pants kids get what's coming to them on the premiere of “BrainSurge.” (Nickelodeon, 6 p.m. Mon.)


Christopher Columbus or the Vikings? The Chinese or the Polynesians? The ancient Hebrews?! None of the above? “Who Really Discovered America?” That question is asked, but probably not answered, in this new special. (History, 8 p.m. Tue.)


Recent Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock was once again the belle of the ball, this time at the 2010 edition of the somewhat less prestigious “Guys Choice,” where she collected an award for entertainer of the year. (Spike TV, 10 p.m. Sun.)
