    Interesting that CBS will air its last finale on Thursday, May 17, almost a week before the TV season officially ends. Also interesting is how many shows end "early," leaving one or more weekly timeslots left to be filled by something else.

    Let me know if there are any mistakes so I can correct them.

    A one hour finale for HIMYM. Hmmmm. Big reveal perhaps?

    Thanks. All the articles I found said that it's a one-hour finale on May 15, but I guess they've since changed that and will air an additional two episodes on May 29. Fixed.

    Since the TV season technically ends on Wednesday, May 23, it's interesting that Cougar Town, Community, and ANTM are airing their finales in the "summer."

    Not any more in Community's case.

    Keeping up with the networks' whims for this thread will be a task :)

    Is anyone going to update the master list of Premiere dates for the shows starting in the summer?

    I'm glad you're keeping up with this stuff. I was just curious about a few finale dates and as I was looking, I realized it would be nice to have it all in one place. But I'm happy to keep updating the OP as long as people keep telling me when things change.

    Didn't realize this until now that when NBC moved the two final episodes of Community from May 24 to May 17, it meant that the finale of Awake moved from May 17 to May 24. Instead of a two-hour finale for Awake on May 17, it will now air one episode on May 17, and then what will likely be the series finale on May 24.

    Hopefully the move to put Community's finale "in season" is an indication that NBC is planning to renew Community.
