The TV finale season is upon us! With over 70 television season finales airing during the month of May, bidding a summer farewell to your favorite television series may not be as easy as you think. Fortunately, we’ve attempted to take much of the hassle out of your upcoming viewing by creating a complete schedule for the May season finales.

Beginning slow with Impractical Jokers, Last Man Standing and In Plain Sight finales, the true viewing madness of May doesn’t start until the second week of the month, with New Girl, The Big Bang Theory, Fringe, as well as 16 other finales.

Continuing into the third week of May: the most television finale-packed time of the entire month presents 33 season finales for your viewing pleasure (or scheduling nightmare), including Bones, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, Awake and many (many) others.

Wrapping up the month of May with only 19 separate season finales, Glee, Dancing with the Stars, Revenge, and Community help round out the end of another television year.

Like with most television finale seasons, much attention will be paid to the series saying their final farewells this year. With In Plain Sight, Desperate Housewives and House all set to end in May, it certainly represents the departure of some of television’s most favored series over the last few years. Combined, the three ending series amount to an amazing 418 hours of television during their time on the air.
