Hear them roar

A thoughtful mix of pioneers, including fashion designer Betsey Johnson, lawyer Gloria Allred and singer Alicia Keys, share tales from trial in "American Masters: The Women's List," a one-hour documentary that reminds you that a simple talking-heads approach can work with the right subjects. 8 p.m. Friday, TPT, Ch. 2

What happens in Vegas

If "CSI" had shuttered its labs a decade ago when it was TV's most popular drama, its departure would have merited a spare-no-expense goodbye party, at least at the headquarters of CBS, which has benefited greatly from the show's success. Instead, the procedural will leave the airwaves after 15 years with the kind of recognition the network might grant Tom Selleck's mustache groomer upon her retirement. On the positive side, the two-hour finale will feature the show's original stars, William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger. 8 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4

Hot spot

"Masterpiece" hopes "Downton Abbey" fans will be willing to travel to the Himalayan foothills for "Indian Summers," a nine-part series in which upstairs is represented by British rulers and downstairs is occupied by oppressed Indians starting to buzz about independent rule in the 1930s. The interaction at a bustling retreat includes loads of illicit romances and political intrigue, but little lightness. The resort could use a guest like Maggie Smith. 8 p.m. Sunday, TPT, Ch. 2

Class reunion

"Saturday Night Live" vets have a tough time cutting ties with their brethren. And why should they? Former cast members almost always have a blast reuniting, as Bill Hader clearly does as the new, mentally unstable police chief in the season premiere of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (7:30 p.m.). Jason Sudeikis' role in the return of "The Last Man on Earth" (8:30 p.m.) is somewhat murky, but we're confident the show's star and creator, Will Forte, won't let his old castmate down. Sunday, KMSP, Ch. 9
