TV Premieres, Finales & Specials This Week 05/22/2011

We are rolling into the final week of May.  That means the Spring school season is about over and the Summer TV season is almost officially here.  There were several casualties for TV series (check this article for a full breakdown of series cancellations and renewals) which means some of the season finales this week are actually series finales.
