ABC has announced storylines that will be featured in each of its season finales this May. However, not every series has had a description of their finale released, falling into three categories as a result. There are shows like Scandal and Once Upon a Time that will be ending during sweeps but for some reason (production issues?) didn’t have finale spoilers released; there are also shows like Body of Proof, Bet on Your Baby, Family Tools, and How to Live with Your Parents that won’t be having a season finale within the confines of May sweeps, though they’ll be airing new episodes throughout; and there are shows like Dancing with the Stars and America’s Funniest Home Videos which aren’t the most conducive to season finale spoiling/teasing.
Which ABC finale are you most excited for? What do you think their schedule will look like next season? Should ABC have ended more of their shows during sweeps?
