A Recent History of Underwhelming TV Series Finales Image via ABC Family

The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family)

Air date: 6/3/2013

It's probably fair to say that The Secret Life of the American Teenager will not be receiving an Emmy retrospective years down the road. Even so, this epically disappointing series finale is underwhelming even by the show's already low standards. This universally reviled series send-off is half clip show, half disappointment. A wedding the audiences had long been expecting didn't happen. One of the show's more sexually liberated characters delivers an uncomfortable monologue that includes the lines, "So what if I'm alone? I'm happy. It's OK to be alone," and a girl dances by herself after she decides to be "just friends" with her longtime crush. On second thought, it sounds like underwhelming might be the kindest thing you could say about this finale.
