8 p.m. on WNUV The 100

The sci-fi se­ries calls it a wrap with a se­ries fi­nale fit­tingly ti­tled “The Last War,” as Clarke (El­iza Tay­lor) and her friends ar­rive at their fi­nal de­ci­sive bat­tle af­ter al­most in­cal­cu­la­ble fight­ing and loss. What re­mains to be seen, how­ever, is a big ques­tion: Does hu­man­ity re­ally de­serve some­thing greater? Lind­sey Mor­gan, Bob Mor­ley, Marie Avgeropou­los, Richard Har­mon, Shannon Kook, JR Bourne, Shelby Flan­nery and Chuku Modu also are fea­tured.

8 p.m. on DIY Re­stored

Host Brett Water­man ex­plores the unique his­tory of Shin­gle Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tec­ture with two of his fa­vorite restora­tions in the new episode “Shin­gle Vic­to­rian Style.” He re­vis­its an 1890 home with a de­cid­edly con­fus­ing lay­out and a 1901 struc­ture that sadly lost its orig­i­nal kitchen dur­ing the course of a past re­model.

9 p.m. on NGC Blood on the Wall

Jour­nal­ists-turned-film­mak­ers Se­bas­tian Junger and Nick Quested turn their cam­eras on Cen­tral Amer­ica to ex­plore the wide­spread cor­rup­tion that is both ac­cel­er­at­ing and im­ped­ing mi­gra­tion of refugees flee­ing the re­gion for the rel­a­tive safety of Mex­ico. Us­ing can­did first-per­son ac­counts from mi­grants on the road, farm­ers, se­cu­rity en­forcers, jour­nal­ists and politi­cians, the film chron­i­cles how traf­fick­ers, cor­rupt elected of­fi­cials and canny busi­ness in­ter­ests have seized wealth and power, leav­ing ev­ery­day cit­i­zens to fight for sur­vival. The sit­u­a­tion has turned Aca­pulco from a tourism hot spot into one of the world’s mur­der cap­i­tals.

10 p.m. on CNBC Jay Leno’s Garage

Jay throws cau­tion to the wind as he jumps head­first into some of the most dan­ger­ous and un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated au­to­mo­tive jobs in the world in the new episode “Amer­ica’s Tough­est: Un­sung He­roes.” One of his guests, Martha Ste­wart — who knows a thing or two about grow­ing up in a work­ing-class fam­ily her­self — shows off Ed­sel “Son-of-Henry” Ford’s Maine es­tate, and takes Jay on a ride in her pris­tine Ed­sel wagon.
