THE LAST WORD ON TV FINALES
November 12, 2018  | By David Bianculli
 
Yes, I’ve just co-edited (with Doug Howard) a book on TV finales, which is called, fittingly enough, TV Finales: From Howdy Doody to Girls. And I’ve just written, for TVWW, a Bianculli’s Blog about Rowan University’s special, book-launch day-long free event this Friday, Nov. 16, called Finale Fest. But there’s one more piece of the finale puzzle to fill in. Question: What’s the most perfect TV finale of all time? The answer, according to me, is the ending of CBS’s Newhart, which concludes with innkeeper Bob getting knocked unconscious by an errant golf ball, and coming to with a very different state of consciousness indeed. The absolutely perfect ending. – David Bianculli
