TV picks: Tuesday, April 17

From left: Virginia (Martha Plimpton), Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman), Hope (Baylie/Rylie Cregut) Jimmy (Lucas Neff) and Burt (Garett Dillahunt) attend Hope's custody hearing on the "Raising Hope" season finale.

“Raising Hope”
COMEDY. The Chances, dysfunctional as they are, prove they’re still a force to be reckoned with when Hope’s baby momma — not executed for being a serial killer after all — sues for custody of her child. Courtroom cameos include Jason Lee, Jaime Pressley and Nancy Grace.
Season finale, 9:30 p.m., Fox

DRAMA. Bridget and Andrew renew their vows — unless Andrew bolts when Bridget comes clean about her secret identity.
Season finale, 9 p.m., The CW

“Lidia Celebrates America”
REALITY. We love Lidia Bastianich because of her “everybody’s Italian grandmother” demeanor and yummy recipes she demonstrates on her cooking show, shot in her home. So it’s no surprise that she’s been invited as a guest to witness wedding ceremonies around the country that observe different cultural customs — and, of course, food.
8 p.m., PBS

“The Voice”
REALITY. After spending weeks under the invaluable guidance of Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Cee Lo Green, elimination is only so painful because Carson Daly is the one shipping another singer home tonight.
9 p.m., NBC
