Best of TV shows of the week

Tonight
Brace yourself for another hilarious verbal beat-down as James Franco takes the hot seat for the "Comedy Central Roast." The guest list includes Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Sarah Silverman and others. 10 p.m., Comedy Central.
Tuesday
Idris Elba is back on the beat in "Luther" as tormented Detective Chief Inspector John Luther. The final four-part chapter of this blistering British drama series is darker than ever as Luther splits time between two horrific crime investigations. 10 p.m. Tuesday, BBC America.
"Cold Justice" is a new true-crime series from producer Dick Wolf ("Law & Order"). It follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and veteran crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary as they attempt to crack long-unsolved murder cases. 10 p.m., TNT.
Wednesday
All good things come to an end -- yes, even "Futurama." The loony sci-fi cartoon series caps things off with the long-anticipated wedding between Fry and Leela. 10 p.m., Comedy Central.
Love is all around for tonight's "Hot in Cleveland," which reunites five actresses from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show": Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel, Betty White and Mary herself. 10 p.m., TV Land.
Thursday
It's more shlocky fun as "Ragin' Cajun Redneck Gators" take to the screen. Some toxic moonshine turns normal alligators into scary mutants, which then wreak havoc on the Louisiana bayou. 9 p.m., Syfy.
Friday
Queen Latifah hosts and narrates "Teach." It's a two-hour special that explores America's education system through the eyes, minds and hearts of four public-school instructors. 8 p.m., CBS.
Saturday
Get a big dose of crazy on "David Tutera: Unveiled," a reality series about over-the-top parties for bratty bridezillas and ditsy divas. 9 p.m., WEtv.
