Now, before anyone asks:
*
The V and Detroit 1-8-7 season finales have already aired.
* No Ordinary Family airs its season finale on April 5, while Mr. Sunshine and Off the Map wrap up their own freshman runs on April 6.
* The sitcom Happy Endings, which bows April 13, can be penciled in for a May 18 finale. Dana Delany’s Body of Proof, premiering March 29, is probably good for an early June finale.

    No Off the Map?

  2. AlistairCrane says:

    Yay for the 1-hour Cougar Town finale!

  3. eliott256 says:

    Glee?

  4. A says:

    Mr. Sunshine is only airing 9 episodes?

  5. Oua says:

    No epically dramatic 2 hour Grey’s finale this year?

    • Bee says:

      no :( probably because the musical episode, as kevin mckidd said, took the time it usually takes for 2 or 3 episodes. so they cut the season’s order by 2 episodes. hopefully next year is back to normal.

  6. Matt – you win 12 extra points for responding in the comments section. I appreciate that.

  7. Heather says:

    I can’t believe ABC is scheduling their comedies on the finale of American Idol.

    Also, why are they scheduling Better with You finale on May 11th, whereas, the other comedies are on May 25th? Makes no sense.

    But I am extremely excited for the Hawaii episode for Cougar Town. Can’t wait.

  8. CINDY says:

    Do finales airing before May appear on the Sweeps Scorecard???

  9. sashay says:

    I’ve never even heard of “Better Than You.” I keep waiting for ABC to pull the plug on Desperate Housewives, the writing just keeps getting worse and worse. Didn’t realize I watched so few of their shows anyway – Castle, Sharks Tank and DWTS sometimes. They really need to come up with some creative shows – or taken over good ones that NBC has let go of, like Perfect Couples.

  10. Darcy says:

    Plus 10 000 points for the CT reference at the beginning.

  11. Jenny says:

    How can Happy Endings have a May 18th finale when they have 13 episodes to air, and the show doesn’t premier until April 13th?
    ABC could I guess air two episodes at a time, but that’s really burning off episodes too quickly imo,
