It seems like the fall TV schedule just got going and yet we are already at the point where many popular shows are either entering a brief hiatus or ending their seasons altogether. This period is somewhat less bleak for the TV obsessed than those dark days filled with summer reruns, but it is nonetheless an inconvenience; thankfully I did the smart thing and saved Arrow on my DVR so I will have something to watch during this break in programming, and there is always Netflix, Hulu and the other streaming services. The following is a list of shows that are either ending for the year, or for the season. Catch them while you can.
