TV tonight: 'Bachelorette Finale'

The Bachelorette Finale/After the Final Rose
It's been a controversial season for The Bachelorette, one filled with sex and publicity-generating Twitter insults about the sex, as the producers no doubt expected — publicity being the reason why they made the sex public in the first place. So as we approach the end, let's keep two season-specific thoughts in mind. The first is that unless you are intimately connected to the people involved, their sex lives are none of your business — and even if you are, commenting on it in public is beyond tasteless. The second is that people who televise their sex lives have no standing to complain when rude people comment, because any rational adult should expect that someone would. Or have you never visited the World Wide Web?
Lifetime, 10 ET/PT
You could watch the After the Rose special. Or you could spend the hour with this satire of the genre instead, which hits its next-to-last episode with Rachel questioning her reality show future.
POV: Tea Time
PBS, 10 ET/PT (times may vary)
Of, if you need a complete cultural cleansing, turn to this film about five Chilean women who have used their monthly tea parties to hold their friendship together through 60 years of change. The film was directed by Maite Alberdi, who shot it over the course of five years.
