The big talk

"Gossip Girl" (7 p.m., WUCW, Ch. 29) ends its six-season run with a two-hour finale that looks back at the drama's "OMG" moments and reveals the identity of the title character. My money is still on Condoleezza Rice. Additional bonus: a sneak peek at the upcoming series "The Carrie Diaries," a prequel to "Sex and the City."

Singing for his supper

Will Minnesota's own Nicholas David Mrozinski and his beard be crowned "The Voice" (7 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11)? More important, can he make Cee Lo Green cry for the second week in a row? Mrozinski battles it out in the final singing competition with a winner to be crowned on Tuesday. In another local connection, Macalester College grad Amanda Warner will perform on "The Late Show With David Letterman" (10:35 p.m. WCCO, Ch. 4) as one half of the electronica band, MNDR.

Commander in chaos

Last time Bill Pullman was in the White House, he was battling aliens in "Independence Day." This time, he's a president struggling with a misfit son. "1600 Penn" (8:30 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11), which is heavy on creative, physical humor, also stars "Book of Mormon" sensation Josh Gad.
