This week's TV picks: 'Top Model' returns, 'True Blood' wraps up

ABC Family's 'Bunheads' ends its first season tonight.

As we count the hours until the fall television season begins, several summer series are coming to a close. Here's what to watch and what to avoid on TV this week:

Monday: "Hotel Hell" 7 p.m., Fox: The ghosts in this haunted hotel might frighten the guests, but I'm guessing it's Gordon Ramsay who's giving the owners nightmares.

"Bunheads" 8 p.m., ABC Family: Season 1 shuffles off tonight.

"The Glass House" 9 p.m., ABC: The freshman season ends, and somebody walks away with $250,000. That'll buy a lot of rags and Windex.

"The Inbetweeners," 9:30 p.m., MTV: Based solely on the trailer for this adaptation, I'm going to recommend that you just watch the raunchy and endearing original British series on Netflix. (Read a review of "The Inbetweeners," back page.)

Tuesday: "Face Off," 8 p.m., Syfy: Contestants have to re-imagine the famous "Star Wars" cantina scene in tonight's third season opener.

"Do Something Awards 2012" 8 p.m., VH1: The cast of "The New Girl" (minus Zooey Deschanel, the only one you really want to see) hosts this year's awards for community service.

Wednesday: "Orangutan Diary" 8:30 p.m., PBS: "Dear diary ... ooh! Ooh! Ah! Ah! Eeeh! Ooh! Ooh! Eeeh! P.S.: Banana!"

"NY Med" 9 p.m., ABC: A dwarf stripper has designs on an E.R. nurse. Finally, in tonight's season finale, the reality" part of this show kicks in.

Thursday: "American Bible Challenge" 7 p.m., GSN: "Well, I'm in last place, so I'll take Miracles for $1,000."

"Anger Management" 8:30 p.m., FX: Season 1 is good and done.

Friday: "America's Next Top Model: College Edition," 8 p.m., the CW: Season 19 goes back to school as a baker's dozen compete.

"Ed Sullivan's Top Performers 1966-1969" 9 p.m., PBS: I wonder how many of the members of Gerry and the Pacemakers are currently wired with pacemakers?

Saturday: "Wrestlemania 28: Rock vs. Cena" 8 p.m., NBC: I don't know how Rock will fare against Cena, but he totally crushed Scissors.

Sunday: "True Blood" 8 p.m., HBO: Tonight's fifth-season ender is less of a conclusion than a cliff-fanger.

"The Newsroom" 9 p.m., HBO: Season 1 wraps up tonight.

"The Great Escape" 9 p.m., TNT: Season finale contestants vie for $100,000 in a tower escape.

"Episodes" 9:30 p.m., Showtime: If this self-mocking Matt LeBlanc comedy isn't picked up for a third season, tonight's installment provides a satisfying conclusion.
