Return engagement

"30 Rock" (7 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11) wisely kicks off its final season before it completely wears out its welcome. Savvy viewers know Tina Fey and company will use their limited season to wink at the audience, starting with this episode's title: "The Beginning of the End."

One last round

The phenomenon is almost over. MTV's Pinkie swears that this sixth season of "Jersey Shore" (9 p.m., MTV) will be the last, most likely to give cast members ample time to start running for political office. Not that the craze can ever completely die. I predict a spinoff in 2018 starring Snooki's child.

Open mike

"Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution" (9 p.m., Comedy) returns for a second season of second-tier comedy with names that may or may not be eventually get to the next level. Bonus: The world premiere of a music video from house band Ozomatli.
