Ready your DVR and replace the batteries in your remote (and, no, switching them around doesn’t count), because it’s that time of year again - to say goodbye to many of your favorite television shows.
While most, if not all, of your favorites shows will be returning this fall, there happens to be a select few series that are signing off for good - even if they're not yet aware of it. The most notable television show coming to an end this year is Smallville. After 10 years on the air, fans will finally see Clark Kent embrace his destiny and become Superman.
Even though Smallville isn’t the only series coming to an end, it is one of the only shows to have officially scheduled its series finale. As many other series finales may come from so-called “bubble shows,” you may not be aware that you're watching the final episode of your favorite show until after the fact.
With over 70 finales scheduled for next month, figuring out your television watching schedule for May is not going to be easy. Fortunately, we have attempted to take all of the hassle out of your television viewing, and provided you with a complete schedule for this year’s television season finales.
