- Six Feet Under. Throughout its five-season run, the sometimes twisted, often darkly funny Six Feet Under went through its ups and downs. Creator Alan Ball kicked off his series with the death of the Fisher family patriarch (Richard Jenkins) and things only got more death-obsessed from there.
- The Sopranos. The series finale that made everybody think their cable had suddenly gone out! There is so much that is both famous and infamous about the Sopranos series finale, "Made in America," that some of the great stuff that happens before that controversial diner scene gets sadly forgotten.
- M*A*S*H. Over 106 million people watched the series finale of M*A*S*H the night it aired in 1983. The legend of that massive number of live-television viewers—a number that stood unchallenged until the Super Bowl in 2010—has helped enshrine M*A*S*H in the television hall of fame.
- Cheers. After 11 seasons anchoring NBC's Thursday night comedy lineup, plus countless Emmy Awards, Cheers shut the lights off on the Boston bar we had all come to know and love.
- The Sopranos // “Made In America” “Made In America” is, infamously, the episode of television that made millions of viewers briefly think that their cable had just gone out at some crucial moment, when in reality what happened was creator David Chase simply decided one seemingly random moment was the exact second where Tony Soprano’s journey would end.
- Six Feet Under // “Everyone’s Waiting” The final minutes of “Everyone’s Waiting” are among the most famous in the history of television, and even if the rest of the episode had been a disappointment, they would still rank among the greatest farewells in the medium.
- Breaking Bad // “Felina” Few series finales have ever faced such high expectations and managed to rise to meet them so powerfully as Breaking Bad did with its final episode in 2013.
- M*A*S*H // “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” M*A*S*H was on longer than the Korean War was actually fought, and was more than 250 episodes into its run by the time “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” aired and became one of the most-watched television events in the history of the medium.

- Six Feet Under(HBO) Six Feet Under was always about facing our own mortality (it was, after all, about a family-run funeral-home business), and the near-perfect finale faced the great beyond head-on in its excruciatingly beautiful last sequence, which flashed forward to the deaths of all the main characters — predictable, tragic or absurd.
- Newhart (CBS) As twisty and self-referential as modern TV has gotten, no show could possibly pull off a twist as shocking and meta as the finale of Newhart, which is perhaps better remembered than the show itself.
- M*A*S*H (CBS) In a poignant, emotional and still top-rated finale, the 11-year run of M*A*S*H (eight years longer than the Korean War it depicted) came to an end as Hawkeye Pierce (Alan Alda) and (most of) the rest finally went home.
- The Mary Tyler Moore Show (CBS) Just thinking about that loving final hug is enough to make any MTM fan tear up. The finale ended in the sad, inescapable way many jobs in the real world do.
