REALITY COMPETITION FINALES — All hail the victors! The broadcast TV season is winding down and you know what that means: It’s time to hand out prizes on several reality shows. The parade of champions begins with “The Amazing Race” (7 p.m. today, CBS), which winds up in Las Vegas. Then it’s “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m. Tuesday, ABC) and “The Voice” (8 p.m. Tuesday, NBC) closing things out on a high note. Finally, “American Idol” wraps up season 13 (7 p.m. Wednesday, Fox) with a two-hour finale, and “Survivor: Cagayan” (7 p.m. Wednesday, CBS) forks over $1 million to the castaway who did the best backstabbing and blindsiding.

OTHER GOOD BETS

TONIGHT: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you cop some hardware at the “2014 Billboard Music Awards. Then it’s on prime time for all to see. 7, ABC.

TONIGHT: A riveting, game-changing season on “The Good Wife” comes to a close. We have just one request: No more corpses, please. 8, CBS.

MONDAY: Our condolences go out to Andi Dorfman. She’s the new leading lady on “The Bachelorette,” which kicks off another season of romantic dysfunction and mascara-running drama. 8:30 p.m., ABC.

MONDAY: “The Maya Rudolph Show” has the former “Saturday Night Live” dynamo presiding over an old-school kind of variety special. Her guests include Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Sean Hayes and others. 9:01 p.m., NBC.

TUESDAY: On “AMC Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops,” active-duty members of the military perform with country music stars. Participants include Merle Haggard, George Strait, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. 8 p.m., CBS.

WEDNESDAY: It’s true. “Revolution” will not be televised. At least not after tonight’s episode. The lights go out on the apocalyptic drama, which has been canceled. 7 p.m., NBC.

WEDNESDAY: As “Modern Family” closes out its season, chaos mounts at the eventful wedding of Mitch and Cam (Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet). Of course. What else did you expect? 9 p.m., ABC.

THURSDAY: “Labyrinth” is a two-part adaptation of Kate Mosse’s novel about two Frenchwomen who, despite being separated by 800 years, share a common destiny — but probably not common hairstyles. 7 p.m., The CW.

THURSDAY: In the new drama “Gang Related,” Ramon Rodriguez stars as a member of a Los Angeles police unit tasked with fighting dangerous gangs. What his peers don’t know is that he has ties to one of those gangs. 8 p.m., Fox.

FRIDAY: Producers are promising an “insane” Season 2 finale of the serial-killer drama “Hannibal.” We wouldn’t want it any other way. 9:01 p.m., NBC.

SATURDAY: Patrick J. Adams (“Suits”), a self-described super fan of “Orphan Black,” drops by the show for a guest stint. He plays a down-to-earth guy who lands in trouble when the clones’ problems come crashing into his life. 9 p.m., BBC America.
