"That '70s Show" tonight prepares for its finale with a clips show tonight and the next-to-last new episode.

"That '70s Show" (7 p.m.) and "That '70s Show: The Final Goodbye" (7:37 p.m.), Fox. This isn't really the show's final night despite the title. That shouldn't surprise us. After all, four more movies followed "Friday the 13th — the Final Chapter." Still, the real finale is coming next week. With that in mind, settle in for a "That '70s Show" night. At 7 p.m. is the second-to-last episode. With her dad moving to Florida, Donna rethinks her plans. Jackie plots revenge on Fez. At 7:37 p.m. — after a seven-minute promo for the new "X-Men" movie — comes a long special of clips and memories of "That '70s Show," which has tended to be lightweight, light-hearted and kind of fun.

"Will & Grace," 7 p.m., NBC. Here's another show that is a week from its farewell. Tonight, Will thinks he and Grace will raise her baby together. Then Vince, who has returned to Will's love life, has some news. Meanwhile, Karen has a sister (played by Bernadette Peters) she's never talked about.


"Survivor," 7 p.m., CBS. This reality show trims down for its finale Sunday.

"My Name is Earl," 7:40 p.m., NBC. This show's terrific first season ends with a dilemma: Earl wants to make up for a basic sin. Seems he stole $10 from a guy at the convenience store. The problem is that the guy was going to use the money to buy the Lotto tickets that instead became a winner for Earl. Just when will all the good kharma start to kick in?

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," 8 p.m., CBS. Here is the first half of the season finale. In a casino, a woman has been taken hostage. While using surveillance to track him, Warwick sees his own wife with another man.

"The Office," 8:20 p.m., NBC. Michael plans an office casino night at the warehouse. Apparently, he doesn't know about all the bad things that happen to casino-goers on "CSI."

"ER," 9 p.m., NBC. Pratt has survived his African adventure and is back at the hospital. But other bad news is about to strike. Meanwhile, Clemente (John Leguizamo) is acting so strangely that Kovac makes him go on break. And the bickering between Morris and Albright has turned into sexual energy.


The lights go down, the music pulsates and the crowds flock to their domain—the clubs, the hangouts, the rendezvous spots. News 8 gives you a look behind the scenes of where Honolulu goes after dark. It's a special report every Thursday in May. Tonight on KHNL News 8 at 10.
