New & Returning TV This Week (May 24-30)

Another week with season finales. The good thing with season finales is the thrill and the high quality content, the bad thing is that you will have to wait a long time before they return, if ever for some shows. Cliffhangers are a curse of the finale season for me, I hate to wait on the resolution for up to eight months. Don’t you?

Season Finales on Chuck and The Big Bang theory tonight they are a must see for me, looks like Ellie might learn something she shouldn’t. Series finale for Flash Forward not so much as it has been going on my to-watch pile for a while now.  Non Genre season finales for The Good Wife, NCIS, Two and a Half Men, Rules of Engagement
