It's another ridiculously busy night of TV, with premieres and finales jousting for attention amid other distractions. It's just as well that CBS' top-rated lineup is taking a breather with repeats.
First, the farewells, going head to head. Once again, NBC sends away its reliably tear-jerking Parenthood (10/9c) earlier in the TV year than we'd like, but a limited run of 15 episodes beats the alternative. Shows like this don't tend to repeat well, and if a shorter run makes business sense — while freeing up the time period in the back half of the season for something else (in this case, a retooled Smash in two weeks) — then so be it. This fourth season has been Parenthood's strongest and most emotionally charged to date, especially in the storyline involving Kristina's breast cancer ordeal, providing Monica Potter and Peter Krause (as husband Adam) with their strongest dramatic material to date. Emmy voters, wake up and take note.
After six seasons, 111 episodes, a backdoor pilot and a revolving door of men, Private Practice will go off the air Tuesday at 10/9c on ABC with Addison finally getting her happy ending: She's getting married to someone she loves — and won't cheat on. (Sorry, Derek!)
Private Practice's series finale to feature Addison's wedding
Addison Forbes Montgomery (Kate Walsh) is set to wed Jake Reilly (Benjamin Bratt), and actually will make it down the aisle. There will be no last-minute change-ups, snafus or curveballs as executive producer Shonda Rhimes has liked to throw at Private fans over the years. TVGuide.com was on set for the momentous occasion, where the cast waxed poetic on saying goodbye to the Oceanside Seaside Wellness group we've come to know and love over the years. What's next for Walsh & Co.? Will they cross over to Grey's Anatomy? And what has it been like saying goodbye? Get the scoop:

Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama
Last week's binders are this week's horses and bayonets.
President Barack Obama's sarcastic knock of Governor Mitt Romney's views on the military budget — saying the military has fewer "horses and bayonets" and Navy ships than it previously did because of changing needs — was the most tweeted-about topic of last night's third and final presidential debate.
The debate overall generated 6.5 million tweets, according to official Twitter statistics — the lowest number of all three debates. The "horses and bayonets" comment alone sparked more than 105,000 tweets and also immediately spawned a parody account, @horsesbayonette.
Here's a breakdown of the 20 best celebrity tweets on the debate:
