"Amazing Race" finale, 7 p.m., CBS. It's time for the final dash toward a million-dollar prize. After traveling 61,000 miles, three wildly different duos compete.

"American Masters: The World of Nat King Cole," 9 p.m., PBS. Nat Cole was a piano player in a jazz trio when he was urged to try singing. What emerged was a voice that dominated the pre-rock era.

"American Idol," 8 p.m., Fox. Tonight, we learn who will be the final two.

"Lost," 8 p.m., ABC. So far, the other islanders don't realize it was Michael who shot and killed Libby and Ana Lucia. That could change quickly. Meanwhile, Michael gathers Jack and others in a daring attempt to rescue Walt. Also, Charlie worries about Mr. Eko's decision to stop building his church.

"CSI: NY," 9 p.m., CBS. A bomb goes off during an investigation. Soon, Mac is recalling a bomb incident from 1983 in Beirut. Meanwhile, his people scramble to discover other bombs.

"Invasion," 9 p.m., ABC. Last week's episode ended hauntingly. As Hurricane Miranda swirled, most of the townspeople had been herded into a large warehouse. They stared in awe, as lights fell from the sky. Russell has been captured, but Underlay remains free, scrambling for some way to help his wife and others.
