American Horror Story: Roanoke (10 p.m., FX) – No episode details are available, but it’s the finale of the season set at Roanoke on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. And boy, this 10-episode “Lost Colony” spin been one long, bloody massacre. The N.C. Tourism Office probably won’t be requesting clips of this show for upcoming ad campaigns.

Also on tonight . . .

Polar Bear Town (8 p.m., Smithsonian Channel) – This new Smithsonian Channel docu-series takes place in the Canadian town of Churchill, Manitoba, the “Polar Bear Capital of the World.” Each year, more than 1,000 hungry polar bears pass through the town of 800 people, as they wait for the Bay ice to return. In tonight’s premiere, townspeople are more tense than usual after a late-night encounter with a bear leaves a woman seriously injured and the bear dead.

Blackish (9:30 p.m., ABC) – All of the ABC sitcoms have special Thanksgiving-themed episodes tonight. On “Blackish,” Pops’ older sister shows up unexpectedly for the holiday, delighting everyone but Ruby.

Wahlburgers (10 p.m., A&E) – With one of these Wahlburgers restaurants slated to open in downtown Raleigh early next year, I guess we should start watching this more. Season 7 opens with Donnie hiring a team to create a virtual-reality experience of the Hingham, Mass., restaurant for fans unable to visit. A second episode at 10:30 shows Donnie and Paul scouting potential locations in Chicago.
