"American Idol" offers two former champs in performance Thursday night.
Kelly Clarkson, the highly successful first winner, will deliver "People Like Us." Scotty McCreery, the Season 10 victor, also will sing. Of course, they could remind viewers how the show has slipped this season. The results edition starts at 8 p.m. on Fox, and the main business will be which contestant is sent packing.
Lazaro Arbos, the last guy left among the six finalists, should be going home based on his weak performances Wednesday. But he made the top three last week.
The judges probably will use their only save this season if any woman is in jeopardy. The save can't be used any time after the contest is down to the final five. Wednesday's show suggests that Janelle Arthur is the most vulnerable woman. If any other woman is in jeopardy, that result would be a surprise.
Other highlights Thursday:
"Go On," at 9:30 on NBC, offers its season finale and what could be its series finale. The Matthew Perry sitcom probably won't be back because of weak ratings.
A new "Glee," at 9, could present major drama. The episode is called "Shooting Star." Fox supplied this preview: "In this episode, the members of New Directions are prepping for Regionals, but when an unthinkable event occurs at McKinley High, perspectives are put into order and lives are changed forever."
Former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner hosts "The Moment," which premieres at 10 on USA. The reality series lets participants have a shot at a dream job, receive quick training and decide whether to leap at a new opportunity.
"Hannibal," the NBC drama about Hannibal Lecter, didn't burn up the ratings in its premiere last week. But the second episode, at 10 on NBC, faces reruns of "Elementary" on CBS and "Scandal" on ABC. Will Hannibal's numbers go up?
Elvis Presley was an American idol who succeeded without a reality-show contest. He made his jump to the movies in "Love Me Tender," a 1956 drama set during the Civil War. TCM gives you a restrained Elvis at 8.
The high-rated CBS lineup is in reruns, but another American idol -- Sheldon Cooper -- can still draw an audience. "The Big Bang Theory" airs at 8.
