Britney and Kevin: Chaotic concludes tonight.

Britney and Kevin: Chaotic concludes its rapid run tonight an hour earlier at 8 p.m. ET. Titled “Veil of Secrecy,” the episode will, UPN says, “reveal how they kept their wedding day plans a secret, not only surprising fans, but even their family members and closest friends with the private ceremony they held in Studio City, California, last November.”

Before squeezing out her kid, Britney will try to squeeze something out of the relatively flat series by debuting her new video, “Someday (I Will Understand),” as part of the finale.
