Today

Tuesday

The Story of the Jews With Simon Schama is an ambitious five-part documentary series that has the author exploring the imprint that Jewish culture has made on the world. 8 p.m., Channel 9.

Wednesday

Psych series finale: After eight delightfully offbeat seasons and one rousing musical episode, we must bid farewell to Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill). The finale, ominously titled, “The Breakup,” features guest appearances by Mira Sorvino and Billy Zane. It will be followed by the “Psych After Pshow,” an hourlong live special in which the cast and creator Steve Franks will reminisce about the series and field questions from rabid fans, affectionately known as Psych-Os. 9 p.m., USA.

Thursday

“Surviving Jack”: Christopher Meloni (“Law &Order: Special Victims Unit”) tries on comedy for size. He plays a gruff, intimidating doctor who becomes a stay-at-home dad when his wife (Rachael Harris) decides to go to law school. 9:30 p.m., Channel 13.

Saturday

Zoe Gone is a new TV movie about a reluctant teen mom whose baby is kidnapped when she becomes too distracted while reading text messages. Jean Louisa Kelly and Andrea Bowen star. 8 p.m., Lifetime.
