It's a transitional week on the TV schedule: a few shows sign off for the season, while several late-season offerings make their premieres. The emotionally-draining season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" comes to an end on Monday night, as Taylor finally reveals the truth about her abusive relationship with late-husband Russell Armstrong. On Wednesday, Fox will an air advance-preview of Kiefer Sutherland's new drama "Touch," while Marg Helgenberger's twelve-year run as Catherine Willows on "CSI" comes to an end on CBS. Thursday offers a double-dose of "30 Rock," as well as Penny and Leonard's ongoing adventures in dating on "The Big Bang Theory." On Friday, after five geektastic seasons, "Chuck" airs its final episode on NBC, while "Spartacus" returns to Starz, with Liam McIntyre playing the lead role after Andy Whitfield tragically succumbed to cancer in September. The week wraps up with Dustin Hoffman joining the ever-growing ranks of film stars who are transitioning to TV with the premiere of HBO's horse-racing drama "Luck" on Sunday night.

Check out a slideshow for the full rundown of what to tune into this week.
