Let’s say “Do Svidaniya” to our favorite Soviet spy couple as “THE AMERICANS” ends its six-season run on FX with an elegant, surprising and moving series finale.

At the annual glittery MET GALA, the theme is “Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” and imaginations are running rampant — we’re talking about you, KATY PERRY and your giant angel wings!

But perhaps the most memorable fashion statement comes when the very American MEGHAN MARKLE weds the very British PRINCE HARRY in a refreshingly unadorned white gown. A gospel choir sings “Stand By Me,” and an American bishop, MICHAEL CURRY, almost steals the show with a spirited improvisational sermon before saying: “We gotta get y’all married!”

Also this month, “THIS IS AMERICA” by CHILDISH GAMBINO, aka multi-talented DONALD GLOVER (also having a big year with “Atlanta”) opens at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, accompanied by a viral video of nonstop dancing punctuated by shocking scenes of shootings.

And goodbye, ROSEANNE: The show’s reboot is canceled following her racist tweet.
