On this day in 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted, resulting in the loss of 57 lives, catastrophic damage to the surrounding forests, and over one billion dollars in property damage. Fortunately, geologists were able to predict an impending eruption, and convinced authorities to close Mount St. Helens to the public, likely saving thousands of lives.

Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC 8pm) Finale: Chef Paula Deen investigates her family history and learns about an event that affected her ancestors during the Civil War.
And that event was the discovery of mayonaisse-coated, deep-fried bacon. Renewal status: Cancelled.
Nikita (The CW 8pm) Finale: Michael and Nikita infiltrate Division in hope of capturing Percy; Sean and Alex are caught in a gunfire battle; Birkhoff seeks help from Sonya.
Everybody loves a sexy Russian super spy/double agent/government experiment/whatever she is. Renewal status: Renewed.

Dump him, Jules! It doesn’t feel like a proper David Greenwalt show without a broken-hearted protagonist. Renewal status: Renewed!
Supernatural (The CW 9pm) Finale: Sam and Dean team up with Castiel, Meg and Bobby as they prepare to battle Dick Roman (James Patrick Stuart).
Dick Roman sounds like a character name from a gladiator-themed porno. Renewal status: Renewed, yet again, because… really, I have no idea why.
Jennie Garth: A Little Bit Country (CMT (9pm) Jennie and her 3 daughters, Luca, Lola and Fiona, decide to build a tree house; Corinne finds activities for Jennie to release some anger; sawing, hammering and painting with her girls is where Jennie finds comfort.
Getting divorced has to suck so much when you want to stay married and your partner doesn’t, but come on, Jennie — the guy openly admitted that he enjoyed reading the Twilight books and that’s why he auditioned for the movies. I’m sure you can do much, much better.
Whale Wars: Viking Shores (Animal Planet 10pm) Finale: As the hunting season reaches its peak, the crew of the Brigitte Bardot must redirect a pod of over 100 pilot whales away from the island’s coast.
Renewal status: I have no freaking clue. It doesn’t look like this has been renewed for a sixth season, probably because most people moved on from the whole “Save the Whales!” thing in the ’80s. I’m not sure what all the cool people care about saving right now. In the ’80s it was whales, in the ’90s it was the rainforests, in the ’00s it was all about reducing our carbon footprints… what are we worried about now, guys? BPA? Vaccines? Global climate change? How can I know what to worry about if nobody will tell me?!
