What to Watch Tonight: The Season Finale of Limitless, a Special Airing of Prince's New Girl Episode, and Fresh Off the Boat

What to watch on Tuesday, April 26...

The Mindy Project
A fiscally scattershot Mindy enlists the expertise of Jeremy’s ex Whitney to tidy up her books in “So You Think You Can Finance.”

8pm, ABC
Fresh Off the Boat
“Hi, My Name Is…” sees Evan eagerly opening his very first bank account, but he’s torn about using his American name or his Chinese name. That prompts Louis and Jessica to share how they adopted their own American names, and to think back on their first meeting. [Cue flashback ripples.]

8pm, The CW
The Flash
Super-strong metahuman Griffin Grey attacks Wells, thinking that he’s actually Wells even though he’s not Wells but Wells. (Trust me, this makes sense if you watch the show.) As a de-powered Barry turns to Jesse for help rescuing her dad in “Back to Normal,” Wally presses Joe for answers about the Flash.

8pm & 9pm, Fox
New Girl
Stinging after his manhood is belittled in front of Cece, Schmidt rounds up the boys for a testosterone-fueled bachelor party weekend in Vegas in “Road Trip.” But before making it to Sin City, they’re waylaid at a biker bar where his newfound machismo is tested. Then at 9pm, “A Chill Day In” finds Jess and Cece taking a decidedly opposite approach to the bachelorette party… until they accidentally ruin the wedding gift from Schmidt’s mom and must find a way to replace it. And at 9:30pm, a repeat of the Season 3 episode “Prince” pays tribute to the recently departed music legend, who once made time to share his romantic wisdom with Nick and Jess.

8:30pm, Fox
Not wanting to admit he’s 51, Jimmy instead throws himself a second 50th-birthday party in “Jimmy’s 50th, Again.” That inspires him to reflect on his 50th birthday 1.0, and on how much his life has changed in the ensuing year.

8:30pm, ABC
The Real O’Neals
Good news, everyone! In “The Real Wedding,” Kenny has landed a lead role in the school’s production of Zombie Romeo and Juliet! Ehh whaaa? His ex Mimi will be portraying his star-crossed lover in the play? And Eileen, realizing that it may be her only chance to see Kenny marry a woman, takes the wedding scene way too seriously? Never was there bad news of more woe, everyone!

9pm, Sundance
Public opinion swings in favor of the rebels in “The Reckoning," even as English authorities continue to bring the hammer down. At the same time, Frances, May, and Aunt Nellie face a more personal form of persecution.

9pm, ABC
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
More and more Inhumans are signing up for #TeamHive in “The Singularity,” but Fitz and Simmons may have a way to reverse that trend. Now if only they can convince Bruce Banner to go along with their “Get Your Picture Taken With The Hulk!” promotion…

9pm, NBC
Chicago Med
Dr. Manning and Dr. Charles tend to a teenager who’s refusing drugs to treat her abdominal pain, for fear of following in her drug-addicted father’s footsteps. Elsewhere in “Inheritance,” Dr. Halstead treats an old high school classmate with whom he shares a tense history, April is nonplussed to learn her beau and her brother are involved in a business venture, and Dr. Rhodes dodges meeting up with his sister.

9pm, The CW
Lex has his hands full maintaining control outside the cordon, so he must dispatch a resentful Jake on a mission to track down a possibly infected woman. Solid plan, should do wonders for easing that resentment. Other developments in “I to Die, You to Live” include Teresa reeling from word of her friends’ possible exposure, Katie steeling her spine as she watches over her students, and Jana learning that her BFF Suzy is also on the unfortunate side of the cordon.

“Finale: Part Two!” concludes the season with Brian devastated by a betrayal even as he and the FBI hurry to stop an NZT-ified Sands and company from executing their diabolical master plan. Not helping matters: the onset of NZT side effects as Brian’s immunity wears off.

10pm, AMC
The Night Manager
Roper’s blissful Mediterranean idyll on the island of Mallorca is obliterated, because spy dramas tend not to leave blissful Mediterranean idylls, um, unobliterated. Six months earlier, Burr continues to recruit Pine.

10pm, NBC

As Holloway testifies in court, her young son continues to hang out with Uncy Severide at the firehouse. Elsewhere in “The Last One for Mom,” Casey receives a suspicious package that sets off alarms at the Board of Ethics, Brett confronts Otis about his slacking off on pressing issues, and Cruz makes a risky decision when the squad responds to a blaze at an art gallery.

10pm, Freeform
The team investigates the murder of a Chinese pop star in “The Dying Shame.” The victim’s bodyguard is the chief suspect—although the fact that she was apparently unconscious at the time of the murder puts a wrinkle in that theory.

10pm, MTV
Jenna must choose between her Idea Bin success and her fragile friendship with Matty in “Girl Gone Viral.” Elsewhere, Jake stumbles into a hookup while Sadie and Sergio expose more than ever.

10:30pm, MTV
Faking It
At a game night, Karma’s rivalry with Amy’s old camp buddy reaches a fever pitch. Let’s just say the words they come up with in Scattergories aren’t suitable for a family website.
