'REAL HOUSEWIVES' OF 'AMERICAN HUSTLE.' Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence says she may be channeling "The Real Housewives" franchise in her role as ditzy 1970s wife Rosalyn Rosenfeld in the new film "American Hustle." "I can't tell where it [the accent] came from because I just kind of started speaking in it, and I've been watching a lot of reality TV shows and those reality TV shows have a lot of New Jersey women, so I can't say that it's not from them," she told MTV. "I wish I could," she joked.

FINALES. Cole Vosbury and James Wolpert were eliminated on "The Voice," leaving Will Champlin, Tessanne Chin and Jacquie Lee for tonight's last performance show, at 8 p.m. on NBC, and tomorrow's season-five finale, at 9 p.m.... Also crowning a winner this week: Fox's "The X Factor," with a performance show 8 p.m. Wednesday and the season-three finale 8 p.m. Thursday. The country-music trio Restless Road was cut, leaving as finalists Jeff Gutt, Carlito Olivero and the duo Alex & Sierra.

PREMIERES. "Lizard Lick Towing" is back for a fourth season of auto repo in Wendell, N.C., Monday night at 9:30 on truTV... Tuesday at 9 p.m. on that channel, it's season eight of "Hardcore Pawn," with the appropriately named Les Gold of Detroit's American Jewelry & Loan... and a "Backyard Gold" special, "After the Gush," which updates us on the doings on its south-central Kentucky oil-field wildcatters, follows at 10 p.m. on Discovery.
