Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' ended on an appropriately anti-climactic note as the group is charged with violating a Good Samaritan law [[ComedicSociopathy by joking about a mugging they witnessed rather than lifting a finger to help the victim]]. The trial saw [[TheBusCameBack a slew of bit characters they'd screwed over come back]] to testify about what rotten people the four were, and ended [[spoiler: with their conviction and they just start a conversation about nothing important while waiting in the jail cell]].

* ''Series/BlackAdderGoesForth'' ended with [[spoiler: all the main characters (sans Melchett) being sent over the top of the trenches and presumably being shot to death. [[TearJerker One of the saddest and]] [[DownerEnding most emotional endings for a series]].]]

* ''Series/TheShield'' had a pretty brutal, but well-fitting finale. "Family Meeting" is a PyrrhicVictory for almost everyone involved, with Vic also being hit with a HumiliationConga and IronicHell of a job.

* ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' averts a flashy Grand Finale, but in the last episode "To Sirloin With Love," [[spoiler:Hank and Bobby find a common ground (grilling beef) and [[SoProudOfYou finally start bonding like father and son]], while Dale gives Nancy a massage that's better than John Redcorn's and viewers finally find out what Boomhauer does for a living: he's a member of the Texas Rangers]]. The original last episode was supposed to be in season 10 with [[spoiler:Luanne marrying Lucky and everyone from past seasons coming to the wedding, but the show got picked up for two more seasons]].
** As well Boomhauer's mysterious first name was revealed to be Jeff.

* Music/{{Queen}}'s '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zqct2SGoDE0 The Show Must Go On!]] is clearly this for Freddie Mercury. Brain May had penned the song, but was unsure that Mercury, who was dying of AIDS, could sing it. Fortunately, Mercury was able to nail it, pouring everything he was into it, and recorded the main vocals in one take after taking a shot of vodka.

** The '''true''' grand finale for the band, at least before May and Taylor went on tour with other musicians, was the [[EpicRocking 23-minute]] {{hidden|Track}} ambient track, given the FanNickname [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence "Ascencion"]].

** The finale of the original ''{{Concentration}}'' on March 23, 1973 had been noted at least twice during the telecast. But their sign-off at show's end was rather perfunctory, with host Bob Clayton thanking viewers over the past 14-1/2 years as Tony Columbia strikes up "Auld Lang Syne" during the ending credits. Announcer Wayne Howell would quickly intone "This program has been recorded. This is Wayne Howell. Have a happy, safe weekend. Bye!"



* ''Abbey Road'' was probably intended to be this for Music/TheBeatles, being their final recorded album, closing out with a big medley of short songs, including a song titled "The End". However, circumstances led to ''Let It Be'' being the band's final album.

* For a long time in ''Series/DoctorWho'', there was [[TheNthDoctor one Doctor]] in particular who seemed to miss the boat on a big finale because he was unfairly booted from the role. Jump ahead 28 years and he finally got one. The Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoSpecialTheLastAdventure provides a final story for Creator/ColinBaker's Sixth Doctor, including the wide gamut of friends, companions, and enemies he encountered throughout his tenure.
