After 10 years and 325 wardrobe and self-esteem upgrades, Clinton Kelly and Stacy London are ready to bid farewell to the dressing room. In the first hour, the dynamic duo answers fan mail about how the show was made. In the second, they head to Las Vegas to reunite with some of the people they made over during the course of the show’s run and, of course, help one more fashion-deprived subject. We like to think that “WNTW” outlasted similar shows thanks to Kelly and London’s funny-but-gentle approach to their makeovers, which were always about building the person’s confidence and not the hosts’ egos.

Shark Tank 9 p.m., ABC

Chum change.


Hawaii Five-0 9 p.m., CBS

Wedding crasher cautionary tale.

The Birthday Boys 10:30 p.m., IFC

From executive producers Bob Odenkirk and Ben Stiller, a new sketch comedy show.
