Most disappointing TV series finales headlined by Dexter, The Sopranos
Still upset at how Dexter finished up? You’re not alone.
Reddit user ChallengeResponse posted graphs tracking show’s IMDb ratings, comparing the fan-voted scores for finales to the average episode rating. According to the study, Dexter fell the furthest and was rated as the second-worst series finale. Dragonball Z and True Blood saw big drops too, as did The Sopranos, considered to be one of television’s greatest dramas.
(An interesting note: ChallengeResponse separated Scrubs season 8 and season 9, with 8’s rating much higher than 9’s. Season 8 marked the end of J.D., played by Zach Braff, as the show’s lead.)
But things aren’t all bad: Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under, and The Office (U.S.) had the best overall finale ratings of the show studied, but Glee, Charmed, and Newhart boasted the greatest positive boosts with their farewell programs.
