Kat Von D, 'LA Ink' series finaleAfter four seasons on the air, it was time for Kat Von D to say good-bye to her life in front of the camera on the series finale of 'LA Ink' (Thu., 10PM ET on TLC). She used the time to reflect on the crazy ride she's had over the past several years.

"I've definitely grown up a lot," she admitted before talking about dropping out of high school to become a tattoo artist at 16. "It was my calling."

"Looking back at the first season of 'LA Ink,' we had no idea it would even get to this level. I'm flattered that people are even still interested," she said. As for her future, she'll keep doing what she loves, equating tattooing to a life-long friend. "Aside from my family, it's the one thing that has stayed consistent."

Kate Gosselin, 'Kate Plus 8' series finaleIt was the end of an era for Kate Gosselin as the series finale of 'Kate Plus 8' (Mon., 9PM ET on TLC) marked the end of a crazy ride in the spotlight. Gosselin first shot to stardom alongside her husband Jon and their brood of 8 children when 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' premiered in 2007.

By 2009, the pair were on the cover of every tabloid magazine in the country, and their Season 5 premiere netted a record 9.8 million viewers.

But things changed dramatically after that, as the couple split and Jon was dropped from the show. Since then, ratings have declined steadily until TLC pulled the plug after 150 episodes.

'Entourage' Series Finale: (Almost) All Roads Lead to Paris (VIDEO)

'Entourage' series finaleLast week, Vince helped out his buddies Turtle and Johnny Drama. That left only this week's series finale of 'Entourage' (Sun., 10:30PM ET on HBO) to help Eric and Ari. Could he throw money at their women problems and make them better? And what about his own lady situation?

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Well, somehow, Vince convinced the reluctant Sophie to marry him. We're talking drop everything and marry him immediately, after a 24-hour date. What was the time gap between last week's episode and this week? It didn't seem to be much, so how on earth did he do that?

She fought tooth and nail against even going on a date with him and now she was ready to marry him just like that? Okay, it was a big ring, but come on?

'Rescue Me' Series Finale Brings Laughs, Tears and Closure (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 8th 2011 1:46AM
After seven seasons, it was the end of the journey for Tommy Gavin on 'Rescue Me' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX).

It's hard to say if it's a great ending or a disappointing ending, but a lot of that depends on your expectations going in. I would say it is definitely a satisfactory ending and, more importantly, a consistent ending.

'Rescue Me' has always been about dark humor, guys being the idiots that guys can be, and moments of danger, violence and occasional poignancy. In that, this finale delivered by being absolutely consistent with what this show has always been about.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Did Detective Goren Get a Proper Resolution on the 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' Series Finale? (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 27th 2011 3:45PM
Vincent D'Onofrio as Detective Goren on 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' Sunday night's 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' (Sundays, 9PM on USA) was not only the season finale but the series finale for Detective Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) and company after ten years of 'Criminal Intent.'

Spoiler alert.

After a season of therapy, it turns out that Goren will keep his job, even if the cameras aren't following him anymore. But will that resolution satisfy the show's fans?

Goren has always been an intense character -- he was once institutionalized undercover to crack a case. His obsession with "the puzzle" was a major driving force on the show, and something explored more directly in sessions with his therapist this season. As his therapist said on Sunday's show, "The job gives you structure, sense of purpose. But you're convinced that it's the only thing that defines you. You think without the puzzle, you don't matter. It's a lie, but it's the only one you've chosen to believe."

'United States of Tara' Season 3, Episode 12 (Series Finale) Recap

Toni Colette['United States of Tara' - 'The Good Parts']

It's the end of an era -- or at least the end of an excellent, and sadly underwatched, show, one that took more risks and offered more insight into the human psyche than most series could even dream of.

And though 'United States of Tara' suffered an unexpected cancellation after filming for Season 3 was completed, I still found myself satisfied by the way the loose ends were tied up, even though I would've gladly seen the show continue for many years to come if the TV gods answered to me instead of eroding ratings.

(S04E20)
A really wonderful thing happened at the end of the series finale of 'Ugly Betty.' Betty Suarez got a new beginning. In the tradition of many television series finales, there were many loose ends tied up, and because 'Betty' was more comedy than drama, it only stood to reason that they were mostly happy endings.

All they needed was Liza Minnelli to sing about it, but alas, there was no musical number to sum it all up. However, there was plenty of character development and plot turns. For more on that and how even Halston got a fashionable farewell, read on after the jump. However, if you don't want to know, consider this a SPOILER ALERT!

Top 24 '24' Moments

24 on Fox
A primetime landscape without Jack Bauer? We thought -- hoped -- the day would never come. But Fox has made it official, and, after eight seasons and a two-hour finale on May 24, '24's' Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and his terrorist-thwarting cohorts will indeed ride off into the TV sunset.

And the only way we can think to soothe our grieving, Bauer-lovin' hearts: Recalling the real-time drama's all-time greatest moments -- 24 of them, of course -- from brutal interrogations and jaw-dropping twists to the biggest villains and heroes and the moment that sealed the fact that '24' was some kind of totally different, some kind of wonderful, TV show.

Kimmel to Do a One-Hour Special After 'Lost' Finale

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:38PM
Jimmy KimmelJimmy Kimmel is no stranger to 'Lost.' He's been doing parody sketches of the show since its first season. Remember when Jimmy revealed that the Smoke Monster was actually Cookie Monster?

It's entirely appropriate that shortly after the two-hour series finale on May 23rd, ABC will be broadcasting "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Aloha to 'Lost'" which will include interviews with the cast and an appearance by showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse.

It's nice when a show has a definitive ending and the network can make a big cross-promotional deal about it, possibly pulling in some extra advertising revenue to boot. Hopefully ABC won't get desperate and start a follow-up series called 'After-Lost'. Or even worse, 'Found.'

One can also hope that the cast doesn't get drunk and act like complete imbeciles like the cast of 'Cheers' did on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' after that show wrapped up. No letting Sawyer near the punch bowl.

Yeah, yeah, we know: The season 8 finale should have been the show's series finale. But, as 'Scrubs' closes out its ninth season tonight (8PM ET, ABC) -- amidst rumors that it's likely the series finale, as well -- we're taking a look back at the moments that made us love the former NBC hospital sitcom and its cast, filled with the quirkiest medical personnel this side of the 'M*A*S*H' 4077th.

'Nip/Tuck' Series Finale: Looking Back at Infamous Moments

Tell us what you don't like about yourself?

Well, we sometimes felt guilty about enjoying 'Nip/Tuck' so much. All the gratuitous sex, hot bodies and unbounded narcissism could be a bit of an indulgence. But while 'Nip/Tuck,' on the surface, was a flashy treat of soft-core porn, operatic slasher movies and trashy soap operas, it did speak to our society's fixation with appearance.

The show was strange, but it wasn't stupid.
