Doubt / 8:00pm (13) In “Run­ning Out of Time,” the first of two back-to-back episodes that end the drama’s run, Sadie (Kather­ine Heigl) makes her clos­ing ar­gu­ment on Billy’s (Steven Pasquale) be­half. Keep­ing her mind on busi­ness is hard, given what she learns about Carolyn (Ju­dith Light). Then in the fi­nale, “The Re­turn,” the jury re­veals its ver­dict, and Billy does some­thing that im­pacts Sadie and Carolyn very per­son­ally. Lav­erne Cox, Dule Hill and El­liott Gould also star. MOVIE “Fan­tas­tic Beasts and Where

to Find Them” / 8:00pm (HBO) 12:05am (HBO) J.K. Rowl­ing made her screen­writ­ing de­but with this whim­si­cal 2016 spinoff to the block­buster movie adap­ta­tions of her “Harry Pot­ter” nov­els, with Ed­die Red­mayne star­ring as Newt Sca­man­der, a “ma­g­i­zo­ol­o­gist” track­ing down mag­i­cal crea­tures set free in the wiz­ard­ing world of 1926 New York. Kather­ine Water­ston, Dan Fogler, Saman­tha Mor­ton and Ali­son Su­dol co-star in the movie, which be­came the first Harry Pot­ter-re­lated film to win an Os­car (for cos­tume de­sign). The $100,000 Pyra­mid / 9:00pm (7) It doesn’t hap­pen of­ten on this show, but spouses play against each other in one of the hour’s games, as Italia Rocci (“Des­ig­nated

Sur­vivor”) vies with hus­band Rob­bie Amell (“The Flash”) to get their re­spec­tive play­ing part­ners to the big-money win­ner’s cir­cle. In the other con­test, it’s Green Bay Pack­ers quar­ter­back Aaron Rodgers vs. Erin An­drews, who has in­ter­viewed him many times as a sports­caster. Michael Stra­han is the host.
