A misty-eyed goodbye! Cheery child expert Jo Frost caps her series with a heartbreakingly tough assignment: to show Texas dad Gary Evans, who lost his wife, Jennifer, to cancer last year, how to rein in his three sad and out-of-control little boys. The tips (timeouts, consistency, etc.) are familiar by now. But Frost approaches her task with confidence and compassion, making sure the kids keep "the spirit of mum" alive. (ABC, 8 P.M.)
