NBC hasn't quite finished rolling out their winter/spring slate, with Revolution and The Voice poised to return next week, and Hannibal set to arrive early next month. But the network is already prepping their season closers for the spring, and for some shows, the end is very near. That includes Whitney and 1600 Penn, both of which wrap up next week.
NBC's choice to bang out two episodes of 1600 Penn this week and the last two next week isn't a good sign for the series, which hasn't done well in the ratings. Then again, there have been gaps between new episodes and at least two nights when a new episode aired after an Office rerun, which couldn't have helped. As hopeful as I am that the show will return for Season 2, it might be a long shot. So let's enjoy the four episodes we'll be seeing of Josh Gad's comedy over the next couple of weeks.
The New Normal and Go On are scheduled to wrap up early next month, and then after that we'll wait until May to see the rest of the series air their finales. Below is the list of shows and season finale dates.
