The 10 Most 'WTF' Television Series Finales

7. Seinfeld: "The Finale"

WTF? They're on trial.

The series finale of Seinfeld is one of the few WTF finales on the list that needs no explanation. After 9 seasons of hilarious predicaments from the puffy shirt, the double-dip and the Soup Nazi, 76 million viewers tuned into the final episode.  As it turns out, the joke was on us; we had to sit through an hour-long train wreck as Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George were put on trial for breaking the Good Samaritan Law and being a bad influence.

The episode ended up a mash-up clip-show and unwanted reunion with every iconic character from the series past. Perhaps the episode would have been better received if NBC hadn’t already aired an hour-long clip show before the start of the finale.

Either way, the series finale of Seinfeld was not only a terrible episode, but a horrible way to say goodbye to four characters and an amazing TV series that brought us so many laughs.

Thankfully, the series was partly redeemed in the quasi-Seinfeld reunion during the most recent season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

You can take a look at some of the horrible Seinfeld finale below.
