Director’s Choice
For over twenty years, our Television and Popular Culture series has been publishing award-winning titles in all areas of television studies. Television Finales: From Howdy Doody to Girls is the natural Director’s Choice title this season, as it brings together more than seventy compulsively readable essays by a broad range of today‚Äôs leading television scholars and critics. It represents the excellence, diversity, accessibility, and vitality that Syracuse University Press strives for in this and all its series.—Alice Randel Pfeiffer, director

A must-read survey covering the most unforgettable TV finales of the last eight decades.

"The last word on TV endings."—Matt Zoller Seitz, television critic for New York Magazine

"Finales are in many cases the high points of iconic television series. This carefully compiled and well-researched compendium provides a definitive explication and assessment of finales through the half century and counting of television, and will become a classic text in the field."—Paul Levinson, professor of communication and media studies, Fordham University

"This book is about much more than television finales; it shows us how the final episode illuminates the entire series. David Bianculli’s work is historically informed, showing his mastery of the subject. With contributors representing some of the leading lights in television studies and impressive contributions by new scholars as well, the approximately seventy essays span the scope of television."—Rhonda V. Wilcox, author of Reading Joss Whedon
