Best shows of the week on TV

Tonight

“Love, Marilyn” is a documentary that attempts to delve into the psyche of Marilyn Monroe via her letters, notes and diaries.

Contemporary actresses, including Glenn Close, Uma Thurman, Ellen Burstyn and Lindsay Lohan, provide commentary. 9 p.m., HBO.

Tuesday

It’s time to face the music on “The Voice” as the singing competition forks over a $100,000 and record deal to its Season 4 champ. We’ll take a wild guess and predict that a country singer will nab the crown. 9 p.m., NBC.

Wednesday

This should be fun: Heather Locklear joins the cast of the legal dramedy “Franklin &Bash.” She plays the firm’s new partner, charged with corralling rambunctious attorneys Peter and Jared (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Breckin Meyer). 9 p.m., TNT.

Time to drown our sorrows over many cans of Slurm. The sci-fi cartoon series, “Futurama,” is coming to an end – but not before a final run of 13 fresh episodes that begins tonight. 10 p.m., Comedy Central.

For the Season 5 premiere of “Hot In Cleveland,” Betty White and the gals are going live. So who will be the first to blow a line or crack up uncontrollably? 10 p.m., TV Land.

Thursday

It’s like they say: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of “Hell’s Kitchen.” It’s only fitting, then, that tonight brings a pressure-cooker challenge. 8 p.m., Fox.

“Wilfred” returns for Season 3 and that guy (Elijah Wood) with the imaginary dog friend is in therapy. Wise choice. 10 p.m., FX.

Friday

On the latest episode of “Treehouse Masters,” Pete is hired by an Ohio family to build a beer brewery in the sky accessible by a rope bridge. We’re so very jealous. 7 p.m., Animal Planet.

Saturday

The new TV film, “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” could be more bloody than dirty. Tania Raymonde stars as the aspiring photographer found guilty of the brutal 2008 murder of her boyfriend. 8 p.m., Lifetime.
