What to Watch Tonight: The Return of South Park, the Series Debut of Moonbeam City, and the Finales of Difficult People, Impastor, and MasterChef

What to watch on Wednesday, September 16...

SEASON 1 FINALE, 12:01am, Hulu
Difficult People
A gig at The Cutting Room could prove a golden opportunity for Julie and Billy as “Difficult Christmas” closes the rookie season. But will a family commitment force Billy to blow their big break? The moral, as always: family will only drag you down, kids.

The two-hour finale starts with the top 3 chefs cooking for 30 restaurant guests, and a classic recipe pressure test awaits the two non-winners of that challenge. Then, the final two contenders must prepare a three-course meal to wow the judges, with a book deal and a $250,000 grand prize on the line.

SEASON 10 FINALE, 8pm & 9pm, NBC
America’s Got Talent
The finalists must leave it all on the stage—heart, soul, guts, spleen, the whole kit and caboodle—in the first hour’s finale performances. The second hour will reveal the winner of this season’s crown and its $1 million purse.

8pm, ABC Family
Young & Hungry
After a psychic’s seismic prediction comes true in “Young & Earthquake,” Gabi frets that the clairvoyant’s other glimpse of the future will prove equally accurate. In other shaky affairs, Yolanda helps Josh overcome his fear of aftershocks, while Elliott and Alan have a big question for Sofia.

8:30pm, ABC Family
Kevin From Work
In “Secrets From Work,” Kevin stumbles upon Julia’s hidden office bathroom—and immediately spills those particular beans to Audrey. Elsewhere, Roxie comes to regret offering Patti advice.

9pm, PBS
“Dawn of Humanity” explores a South African cave housing an anthropological jackpot: more than 1,500 bones and counting that could offer crucial keys to our understanding of the fossil record and the origins of homo sapiens.

SEASON 19 PREMIERE, 10pm, Comedy Central
South Park
In "Stunning and Brave," South Park Elementary’s new principal forces the boys to reckon with all the harm they’ve caused by being blind to racism and prejudice. This may prove to be the most dispiriting clip show in the history of the medium.

10pm, FXX
The League
Andre’s plan for a themed draft goes over about as well as any of Andre’s suggestions, but the league’s auction draft creates problems of its own. Meanwhile in “The Draft of Innocence,” Pete and Andre are incommunicado.

10pm, TV Land
The Jim Gaffigan Show
“Maria” sees Jeannie’s younger sister visiting—and agreeing to a date with Dave, much to Jeannie and Jim’s chagrin.

SERIES PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
Moonbeam City
Elizabeth Banks, Rob Lowe, Kate Mara, and Will Forte lend their voice talents to this animated parody of 1980s cop dramas (one neon-tinged, Miami-set specimen in particular). “Mall Hath No Fury” introduces the daft yet dashing Dazzle Novak, a detective whose determination to dethrone a drug doyen might be fairly compared to the hunger of some wolf-like animal.

SEASON 1 FINALE, 10:30pm, TV Land
Buddy is on the run once again in “Exodus” after learning that he’s in a hitman’s crosshairs. Back in Ladner, Dora becomes a local hero while Schmidt makes a shocking proclamation.

10:30pm, FXX
You’re the Worst
Gretchen leads an excursion to the mall in “Crevasses,” and along the way Jimmy finds creative inspiration (and possibly also a Cinnabon). Meanwhile, Lindsay enlists Edgar’s help as she wades back into the dating pool.

11pm, TV Land
The Exes
In “Along Came Holly,” Stuart and Holly persuade Margo to hold her wedding at their restaurant, while Haskell does whatever he can to nix the nuptials altogether.
