WATCH THIS:

  • "Defiance" (8 p.m., Syfy): It's Linda Hamilton's version of "Mommie Dearest." Well, sort of. In tonight's two-hour season finale, her manic character, Pilar McCawley, kidnaps her daughter -- at gunpoint, no less. This woman seriously needs to chill out.

  • "World's Wildest Commercials" (10 p.m., ABC): Chris Parnell hosts this collection of outrageous advertisements. All he asks is that you resist the urge to fast-forward through the entire program.

  • "Snack-Off" (10:30 p.m., MTV): So you think television doesn't provide a valuable public service? Think again. On tonight's episode, amateur cooks work to create the ultimate hangover cure.
