screenrant tv 570x311 Complete Guide To 2010 TV Season/Series Finales

It’s that time of the year when we must once again bid adieu, albeit temporarily (except for Lost, which is gone forever), to our favorite television shows. Over the next four weeks, over 60 shows will be on hiatus until this fall.

While that means your summer viewing schedule will be completely open, you better get your DVR’s ready, because the month of May is going test your television watching ability.

Luckily, Entertainment Weekly has helped put some order to all this television madness by putting together a comprehensive list of all the upcoming season/series finales.

Check out the list below to see when your favorite TV show finale airs. While you’re at it, you better check it twice because there are many overlapping finales. For instance, the two-hour series finale of Lost is on at the same time as the season finale of The Simspons, Family Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show and Celebrity Apprentice.

Hmm… Such a tough decision: Lost or Celebrity Apprentice.

chuck finale Complete Guide To 2010 TV Season/Series Finales

It appears that the first few weeks of May are pretty quiet and only include finales for The Amazing Race and Cold Case, but that just means the last two weeks are going to be even more hectic.

Do you have your television finale viewing schedule planned out? Are any of your favorite show finales airing at the same time? Is anyone going to choose Celebrity Apprentice over Lost?

Make sure to check back as Screen Rant plans on reviewing a good potion of this year’s television finales. Of course, don’t expect any Brothers & Sisters or Desperate Housewives reviews because our resident female drama fan, Paul Young, will be still gushing over the American Idol finale.

  1. Hmm, so my days to pencil in will be May 17th (House and Castle) and May 24th (Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother).

    And happily Glee is going until June.

  2. FlashForward, Lost, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Rules of Engagement. All shows I watch weekly… I'm sad they're all going!

    BUT, Hell's Kitchen should be starting up soonish!!! (Right?!)

    I'll tune in for these ones also; Castle, Modern Family, Smallville, Family Guy, American Dad.

  3. so no HEROES i see

  4. HEROES was done before the Olympics due to a shortened episode order for this season. I'm on the fence for it's return as I hope the series will get back to it's season 1 awesomeness, but hesitant because it's more likely to either be cancelled or stay as bad as it's been with only a few bright spots here and there.

  5. I don’t know if Screen Rant mentioned this before, but I was watching Stargate SG1 the other day when I noticed that the Ori-psi (the Ori christ) looked familiar. I then noticed that she was the same actress that plays Anna from V, except in SG her hair is longer. I just thought that was interesting.

    Well, Clark better learn how to fly real soon because Zod has his army of super-powered Krytonians now. I just hope they get more money to have more effects.

  6. I can’t wait for the season finale of Supernatural. This show is so awesome can’t wait for the sixth season…

  7. I just read on the Dark-UFO site that LOST will be 2-1/2 hours instead of 2 hours. Yippie!!!
