SUNDAY

AMERICAN DREAM BUILDERS

8 p.m., NBC

Nate Berkus helms this new home makeover show in which a dozen designers compete to redecorate and renovate a house in just a few days. Joining Berkus will be judges Eddie George (a former NFL All-Pro who has become a landscape architect) and interior design expert Monica Pedersen.

MONDAY

DANCING WITH THE STARS

8 p.m., ABC

The timelessly smooth Billy Dee Williams had a rough start on the
dancefloor. His unfortunate “Star Wars”-themed cha cha — complete with storm troopers and Ewoks — drew the lowest score from the judges in last week’s premiere. Can the coolest cat from Cloud City strike back?

TUESDAY

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE 9:30 p.m., Fox

The first season of this superb new comedy comes to a close. While every episode wasn’t a home run, the cast quickly coalesced into a strong ensemble and the writers gave them all distinct voices, with props to whoever writes the hilarious dialogue for Terry Crews.

WEDNESDAY

PSYCH 9 p.m. USA

It is time to bid farewell to this bromantic series, as Gus (Dule Hill, right) and Shawn (James Roday, left) head back to their old high school to crack their final case. Quirky, inventive, and underrated, the show, USA’s longest-running, will no doubt go out with a bang. Make sure to stay tuned for the “Psych After Pshow.”

THURSDAY

INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO

The cast of “How I Met Your Mother” — Josh Radnor, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan, and Cobie Smulders — sits down with James Lipton just four days before the series finale. Expect Lipton to interview NPH as his lothario character Barney Stinson.

FRIDAY

LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER:
PATINA MILLER 9 p.m., WGBH 2

The 2013 Tony-winner for best actress in a musical, the ART-spawned “Pippin,” gave a superb performance at the recent Television Critics Association winter press tour, so we suspect this installment of the musical series will be a treat. Miller runs through tunes from the shows in which she’s appeared, including “Sister Act” and “Hair,” as well as other Broadway, pop, and soul favorites.

SATURDAY

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

11:30 p.m., NBC

Newton’s own Louis C.K. returns to Studio 8H to host the venerable sketch show. His last stint included a couple of bits, including Abe Lincoln as a stand-up comic in the “Louie”-style. Hopefully, he can find a few of those this time out. British R&B singer Sam Smith holds down the musical duties.
