since it’s the middle of the summer, and i’m knee-deep in nothing but Big Brother, and i’m missing my regular season tv…i thought i’d take a stroll down cliffhanger lane and give you, what i think, are 13 of the best tv show cliffhangers ever. (granted…the Sopranos is a bit of a stretch, since that’s a cliffhanger we’ll never resolve…but still, it deserves a place in the top 13)

1. who shot Mr. Burns? – The Simpsons

2. who shot JR? – Dallas

3. Ross says the wrong name – Friends

4. Peter Petrelli dies to save the world…or does he? – Heroes

5. McDreamy is McMarried – Grey’s Anatomy

6. west wing staff is gunned down – The West Wing

7. Massacre in Moldavia – Dynasty

8. Jim kisses Pam – The Office

9. who is Cartman’s Dad? – South Park

10. THE prison break – Prison Break

11. The Sopranos goes black – The Sopranos

12. Alby gets poisoned – Big Love

13. Vinnie Chase fires Ari – Entourage


  1. GREAT list! I miss regular tv as well!

    Happy TT!

  6. Oh The Sopranos was one of my fave shows ever! I didn’t like the ending at first, but I watched it a second time and came to my own conclusions and I’m ok with it! Big fan of Big Love, too!!!

    A new series just started Sunday on Spike called The Killing Point (maybe it’s Kill Point) about a botched bank robbery. I think it might end up similar to Prison Break, but it’s better than Big Brother 🙂

    I have a special TT today about everything happening on my blog on Saturday for Blogathon 2007! Hope you’ll stop by!

    Happy TT!

  7. Ooh those are some good cliffhangers!!
    My faves were definitely Friends, Greys and Prison Break.
    Of course, all their latest seasons have had great cliffhangers once again! So frustrating sometimes.

  8. Awesome awesome awesome! All fantastic cliffhangers! But, I could watch Big Brother all year…they’ve got some great cliffhangers every show, too!

    I love the Office.

  10. Great choices. I think the Season Two season ender for Grey’s with the hot sex in the operating room and Denny’s death was my top Grey’s cliffhanger so far. Lost throws out some good ones too!

  11. My all time favorite cliffhanger was Alias, when they tell Sidney that’s she’s been dead for two years and that Vaughn was married!!!!!!!!

  12. I guess I’m late…being that it’s early Friday. But it’s been a busy fun day…kind of like my whole summer. Although it wouldn’t qualify as a cliffhanger, one of my favorite TV moments was when Ros fell down the elevator shaft on LA Law!!

  13. That’s a great lists. I do think one of the 24 cliff hangers should have made it though. What about 24 season 2? President Palmer assasination attempt, that was a good one.

    Big Brother is my show of the summer too right now. What do you think of the whole, Nick, Danielle and Danielle’s poor boyfriend back home who has to watch her make out with some dude under the covers love triangle?

  14. LOL I remember a few of these–great list!

  15. […] a few weeks back we discussed the best tv show season-ending cliffhangers. (please note…i would now have to add the season one finale of Lost to this list because seriously? it was AMAZING. the raft? the hatch? that’s good tv right there…) anyway, so i thought today we’d discuss the best tv series finales. we all know that Seinfeld was just about the worst one ever…and most people will say Six Feet Under is the best, but alas, i have yet to watch it (i know, i know, maybe i’ll start after i’m done with Lost) […]
