TVLine's May Season Finale Calendar: What's Ending When?

Oh, how this time of year hurts for the TV-phile. The month of May is just around the corner, meaning that no less than 71 (!) season-enders — including at least one particularly super series finale — are coming our way.

When will How I Met Your Mother let slip a glimpse at the wedding? On what day will Fringe reveal the fates of our and their universe? When will The Office parade its bevy of very special job candidates?

When will the next American Idol be crowned? On what day might a certain Smallville hero fly up, up and away? And when should we mark the calendar for whatever twistiness Grey’s Anatomy has planned?

TVLine has compiled the season finale dates for all of the shows from ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW. Yes, our pretty calendar looks tiny below — but click on it, and you’ll find something printable to keep on the coffee table next to the remote. (Unless your clicker is lost, or jammed under the sofa cushion. We can’t help you with that.)

My DVR just let out a plaintive wail looking at Thursday, May 19.

NOTE: If there’s something that doesn’t finale in May (and it isn’t denoted in the shaded box on the calendar), drop a note in Comments and we’ll do our best to help you out with a date or timetable. As for cable fare, I’ll tell you this much: FX’s Justified concludes its second season on Wednesday, May 4.
