What’s On: Finale Monday!

At least 8 series end tonight in what I’m sure will be thrilling and tense finales. Will Naomi Clark graduate? Is Sarah dead? Who’s wedding is Ted best man at? What brings Georgina Sparks back to the Upper East Side? and who’s the casualties on Castle and Hawaii Five-O? All will be answered tonight, Monday May 16, 2011.

Finales!

3rd Season Finale Alert!
90210 “To The Future!” 8:00 on CW

Ivy and Raj have an “A Walk To Remember” type wedding, Liam decides not to pursue a post-secondary education, Ryan and Debbie get written out of the series in what I’m sure will be a ridiculous but satisfying manner, and Adrianna’s revenge scheme on Silver gets revealed resulting in her banishment. But the biggest question on my mind is will Naomi Clark get to graduate with her friends? And why is Naomi Clark not only the best character on this series by far, but probably the best character on the CW? Tonight’s finale was written and directed by departing Showrunner Rebecca Sinclair, who is responsible for the creative turnaround at the end of the first season, so it should be great.

4th Season Finale Alert!
Chuck
“Chuck vs. The Cliffhanger” 8:00 on NBC

NBC beloved gem of a series ends it’s fourth season tonight with Chuck on a revenge rampage for his interrupted wedding. It returns on fridays next fall for a final 13 episode season. It’s really nice to see tv execs caring about the fans when they make their decisions.

6th Season Finale Alert!
How I Met Your Mother “Challenge Accepted”

Robin and Barney rebond when helping Ted get over Zoey until they run into Nora. Is the wedding Barney’s? Is he marrying Nora or Robin? Could this season have been any more focused on Daddy issues? Imagine it returns next season minus that awful laugh track?

4th Season Finale Alert!
Gossip Girl “The Wrong Goodbye” 9:00 on CW

This season has had its ups and downs, I mostly loved everything to do with Juliet, but the subsequent reprocussions have been really obnoxious, as has the Russell Thorpe/Raina plot line (Michael Boatman is a billion times better in his Good Wife recurring role. There are two shining beacons of joy on the horizons, first is the yearly finale visit by Georgina Sparks (Michelle Trachtenberg) and second that Vanessa Abrams and Jenny Humphrey will be persona non grata come next year. After 4 long seasons those obnoxious bitches will finally be gone.

 

First Season Finale Alert!
Mike & Molly “Peggy’s New Beau” 9:30 on CBS

I saw Bridesmaids over the weekend and Melissa McCarthy killed it. Go check that movie out! Tonight Mike and Molly are introduced to Peggy’s new boyfriend (played by True Blood and Deadwood’s William Sanderson.)

First Season Finale Alert!
Hawaii Five-O “Oia’i’o (Trust)” 10:00 on CBS

The wildly successfull first season comes to an end tonight as the team gets too close to Wo-Fat with devestating consequences. As the Governer cannot protect them any longer it’s time to pay for their actions. Also someone is dying. Mark Dacasos and Larissa Oleynik guest star.

3rd Season Finale Alert!
Castle “Knockout” 10:01 on ABC

Castle is usually one of the lighter procedurals on TV, unless its dealing with the murder of Beckett’s mother, which it does tonight. When Hal Lockwood (guest star Max Martini) escaped from prison the team discovers that Lockwood’s escape is linked to Joanna Beckett’s murder. The investigtion comes to a fatal and tragic conclusion; one of the regulars is dying tonight, and while plot and impact wise, killing Esposito, Ryan or Lainie would have a greater impact, but I have a feeling that the ill fated is Captain Montgomery, played by Ruben Santaigo-Hudson. It’s been a great third season for Castle and from what I hear it’s gonne be one helluva cliffhanger tonight.

The Rest:

Dancing With The Stars 8:00 on ABC – 4 “stars” are left.

House 8:00 on FOX – House deals with the reprocussion of taking an experimental drug.

The Secret Life of the American Teenager 8:00 on ABC Family – I want Molly Ringwald and Mark Derwin to sit on a table and eat a cake together.

Series Finale Alert!
Mad Love
8:30 on CBS – This awful series ends if awfully short awful run tonight.

The Chicago Code 9:00 on FOX – This was a great little series that too a little too long to find it’s footing, I hope that there’s some sort of conclusion before the series finale next week.

The EVENT 9:00 on NBC – There was so much promise with the cast and the concept, it’s a shame that it all fell totally and incredibly flat. I will especially miss Taylor Cole’s Vicky Roberts and Zeljko Ivanek’s Blake Sterling.

Make It or Break It 9:00 on ABC Family – I rewatched DJ’s anorexia episode of Full House the other day. It’s a classic.

Law & Order:LA 10:00 on NBC – Haha NBC, you cancelled the flagship only to greenlight this grittier version only to have it FAIL.

The Hard Times of RJ Berger 10:00 on MTV – Just the worst sitcom.

Nurse Jackie 10:00 on SHO – Edie Falco with short hair is so spunky!

The United States of Tara 10:30 on SHO – What a waste of everything.
