TV Watch List: Thursday, September 19

'Money From Strangers'
‘Money From Strangers’

Metro’s Thursday night TV breakdown. 

COMPETITION. In a gross season finale, contestants with gross jobs, like poop scooping and roach poaching (their descriptors, not ours), have to compete in gross challenges. It’s going to be gross, is what we’re saying.
Season Finale, 8 p.m., ABC

‘Million Second Quiz’
GAME SHOW. Wait, it’s already the season finale of this show? It feels like it just started, like, seconds ago. In the finale, the perfectly coiffed humanoid media robot known as Ryan Seacrest announces the interactive game show’s winner.
Season Finale, 8 p.m., NBC

‘Money From Strangers’
GAME SHOW. To win money tonight, the contestants have to massage some muffins in public. Muffin Massage would be a really good name for a really bad band, by the way.
11 p.m., MTV

‘Love For Sail’
REALITY. This is a new dating show that takes place on a cruise ship. We have a feeling there will be a lot of men overboard — to escape the desperate hordes of seasick/lovesick single women.
Series Premiere, 11 p.m., LRW
