  1. Some additions / corrections:

    Community – May 17th
    Nikita – May 18th
    The Celebrity Apprentice (US) – May 20th
    Awake – May 24th
    Cougar Town – May 29th

  2. Gotta love the May finals month.

    I hope Community is renewed but it’s not looking good. There is hope that Parenthood will be back, it ended it’s shorter season back in Feb but signs are it will be officially renewed in a few weeks at the NBC upfrounts.

  3. I wonder if Fringe or Once Upon a Time will start to air here before the U.S. finale of either series. Or will they be after?

    For the Americans I’m glad Supernatural and Fringe have different last episode dates. But not Grimm and Supernatural it seems.
