Over the course of the next eight weeks, season finales, summer premieres, and the announcement of the new 2013-2014 fall line-up awaits eager television fans. But with everything occurring around the same time, it can quickly become a challenge to figure out when all the fall shows will come to an end for the summer (or forever). Fortunately, we’ve got a handy season finale guide to help you out!

Instead of having to blindly rely on your not-always-reliable DVR, we’ve broken the season finales up into 4 parts, so you’ll be able to easily find the end dates of your favorite shows. And now that most networks make episodes available on their website or through Hulu, we’ve also made sure to indicate which shows will not be available to watch online after they air – so keep that in mind as you plan your viewing.

Week 1 & 2: The Warm-Up

Like the title suggests, these two weeks are merely a taste of what’s to come. With Bones, The Following, Parks and Recreation, The Mentalist, Community and Person of Interest taking top spots in this group of finales, you’ll be able to easily pick and choose which finales to watch – and because all but two will be available online the day after they air, you can also decide when you’ll watch them.
