Watch it

Tour of California (2 p.m., Versus, recap at 8 p.m.). Why is traffic in downtown Santa Rosa going to be a mess and a half today? Tune in to watch Stage 2 of the race, and you’ll see why.

“Chuck” (8 p.m., NBC). Chuck’s father (Scott Bakula) shows up, and the Ring is close behind. Should be a good lead-up to the season finale.

“24” (9 p.m., Fox). Wait, now Jack and Chloe are on opposite sides? This will not stand. Ehhh, only three hours left, might as well check it out while you still can.

“Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” (10 p.m., Food Network). Guy Fieri sticks close to home and checks out Kenwood’s Cafe Citti.

Record it

“How I Met Your Mother” (8 p.m., CBS). Stella’s new boyfriend makes a movie about stealing her away from Ted, and Ted doesn’t like the onscreen version of himself. How bad is it? He’s played by Chris Kattan. Ouch.

“Gossip Girl” (9 p.m., The CW). The season finale can’t come fast enough. Please, put this season out of its misery. The good news: Evil Georgina is back, and bad things happen to Jenny.

“Castle” (10 p.m., ABC). In the season finale, Castle and Beckett finally admit they have feelings for each other.

Skip it

“Real Housewives of New Jersey” (10 p.m., Bravo). Don’t, you’re better than this.
