5 Best Bets on TV This Week: Finales Abound - 'The Blacklist,' 'About a Boy,' 'Grey's Anatomy' and More

Sure, Sunday tends to be overcrowded with high-end TV like “Game of Thrones” and “Mad Men,” but what do the other nights have to offer? Every Monday, we bring you five noteworthy highlights from the other six days of your upcoming week.

“The Blacklist” – Season 1 Finale
Monday, May 12th on NBC at 10:00pm

On the eve of “The Blacklist” Season 1 finale, NBC announced that it had picked up the crime drama for a second season. Just 10 episodes deep, “The Blacklist” keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, frequently derailing their assumptions about what they thought they knew for certain. In the Season 1 finale, Red and Liz confront a mysterious enemy that goes by Berlin.

“Trophy Wife” – Series Finale
Tuesday, May 13th on ABC at 9:30pm

Ever since “The West Wing” ended, Bradley Whitford just can’t seem to catch a break. The least a Whitford fan can do is demonstrate his or her solidarity by tuning in for the series finale of the short-lived ABC comedy, “Trophy Wife.”

“About a Boy” Season 1 Finale
Tuesday, May 13th on NBC at 9pm

Not only can fans of NBC’s freshman comedy “About a Boy” look forward to a second season, but they also get double the fun with the show’s Season 1 finale, which features two back-to-back episodes. When Will’s new love interest, Dr. Sam, becomes homeless, he offers a place to stay — a decision he almost immediately regrets.

“Arrow” – Season 2 Finale
Wednesday, May 14th on The CW at 8pm

With The CW having given a series order to “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash,” right now might be the perfect time to tune in to get a sense of how The CW is re-imagining the DC universe for a new generation of youths. This past season, “Arrow” ramped up the conflict between Oliver Queen and Slade Wilson. In the Season 2 finale, Slade kidnaps someone close to Oliver, which forces him to make a difficult choice.

“Grey’s Anatomy” – Season 10 Finale
Thursday, May 15th on ABC at 9pm

If you are or ever were a “Grey’s Anatomy” fan, consider tuning in this Thursday for the Season 10 finale, which will also mark Sandra Oh’s departure from the show. Oh has been a regular on the show since it first aired back in 2005. Her departure from “Grey’s Anatomy” means that CBS will be the only network with Asian American actors as series regulars on a primetime drama — namely Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park on “Hawaii Five-O.” Here’s to another 10 years of the networks putting off progress!
