The 10 Most Disappointing Television Finales of All Time

"Desperate Housewives" Series Finale

8. Desperate Housewives, May 13, 2012

When Desperate Housewives first hit the airwaves, it was everyone’s guilty pleasure. By the time the 8th season rolled around, viewers felt guilty for still watching this nighttime soap. In the final moments of the series, we watch as Susan leaves Wisteria Lane. As she drives away, viewers caught a glimpse of all the people who have died over the years. What should have been a touching good-bye turned morbid very quickly. It also made me never want to move to the suburbs.
