What happened 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. True, the show’s original stars, William Petersen and Marg Helgenberger, will return for the two-hour finale, but one gets the sense that’s mostly to rescue a few bottles of Gatorade they left in their lockers. Those who have stuck with the series — or are overwhelmed with nostalgia — are being promised a satisfying ending that will manage to be upbeat despite the old gang’s investigation of numerous bombings. Our No. 1 suspect: Laurence Fishburne, who left after three fairly unmemorable seasons. 8 p.m. Sunday, WCCO, Ch. 4

Hot spot

“Masterpiece” hopes “Downton Abbey” fans will travel to the Himalayan foothills for “Indian Summers,” a nine-part series with British rulers and 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

Court of appeal

Rob Lowe and Fred Savage don’t do much to shake up their on-screen personas in “The Grinder,” a new sitcom about a sweaty attorney and his TV star brother, who inexplicably decides to ditch Hollywood to try cases in the family firm. Despite the predictable casting, the two veterans seem enthusiastic, perhaps because the script is considerably smarter than most passing today’s network-sitcom bar. 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, KMSP, Ch. 9

Strong medicine

If you’re in need of emergency care, avoid most TV hospitals, where doctors seem to think the operating room is a place to show off their boldness and disregard for the rules. “Code Black” is no exception, although the perilous visit is worthwhile just to see the always entertaining Marcia Gay Harden bark at residents who couldn’t quite make the cut at “Grey’s Anatomy.” 9 p.m. Wednesday, WCCO, Ch. 4
