As the TV season comes to a close, TV Guide Network takes a look back at the best finales of all time.
From the cut-to-black ending of The Sopranos to the vaguely spiritual final act of Lost, Jason Alexander counts down the most unforgettable finales. The special also features interviews with stars of these talked-about finales, including Will & Grace's Megan Mullally, Dallas' Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman, M*A*S*H's Mike Farrell and The Shield's Walton Goggins.
It doesn't matter how many phony shoot-outs you do as an actor. Nothing prepares you for the real deal. "There's smoke in the air and I can see it and taste it," Jason Clarke says with reverence in his voice. He's recalling one of the many ride-alongs he was on with Chicago law enforcement in preparation to play a detective on The Chicago Code, Fox's new cop drama from The Shield creator Shawn Ryan. "Our car pulls up and there's a guy on the ground. He's been shot. It's nighttime. We're outside a church. My heart is pounding and my mind is going, 'What the hell am I doing here?'"

Miss The Shield? On Monday, Fox will debut Shield creator and boss Shawn Ryan's new cop drama The Chicago Code.
The series revolves around the Chicago Police Department, whose superintendent Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) is in the middle of creating a task force to help to take down a corrupt city alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo) with possible ties to the Irish mob. Teresa tasks Det. Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) and his new partner Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria) to investigate.

Question: I've noticed the last few years that shows that were "summer shows" started bleeding into the fall or having new episodes in the winter. I think season 1 of Damages was one of the first. It started in the summer but did not end until the fall, which made it hard to stay with once the regular shows started up. But now other cable shows are doing this, including splitting their seasons and airing them at other times. The Closer, White Collar, Burn Notice, and now Royal Pains, which started as ...
The Vampire Diaries (Monday-Friday, 8/7c, The CW)
Get bit. The CW's Southern Gothic answer to Twilight-mania is at least as sexy and twice as fun, burning through so much bloody story in its second season that this weeklong marathon of the sophomore year's first 10 episodes should come in handy, with two episodes airing each night. This time around, admire the ladies of Mystic Falls, in particular Nina Dobrev doing double duty as the virtuous Elena and the evil vamp Katherine, and Candice Accola as Caroline, whose transformation into one of the show's most fascinated and tormented characters took nearly everyone by surprise.
