Season finales galore this week

Connor Buckley (left) and Christopher Meloni star in “Surviving Jack” at 9:30 p.m. Thursday on Fox. Unfortunately, renewal odds don’t look good, so this could end up as the series finale, as opposed to a season finale.
Partrick J. Adams and Zoe Saldana star in NBC’s two-part remake of “Rosemary’s Baby,” airing at 9 p.m. Sunday and May 15.

Despite may having 31 days, May Sweeps actually ends after 21 (well, technically 28 since it started April 24). That means that today we’re at the halfway point and that the finales are really ramping up. This week, there are 28, including four on cable, one two-parter and four possible series finales.

Here they are, broken down by day:

Thursday: “Two and a Half Men,” 9 p.m., CBS; “Saint George,” 9 p.m., FX; “Surviving Jack,” 9:30 p.m., Fox (likely series finale).

Friday: “Unforgettable,” 8 pm., “Hawaii Five-0,” 9 p.m., and “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS.

Sunday: “Once Upon a Time,” 8 p.m. (two hours) and “Revenge,” 10 p.m., ABC.

Monday: “Star-Crossed,” 8 p.m., CW (likely series finale); “The Blacklist,” 10 p.m., NBC; “Castle,” 10 p.m., ABC.

Tuesday: “Glee,” 8 p.m., Fox; “The Originals,” 8 p.m., CW; “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” 8 p.m., “The Goldbergs,” 9 p.m., and “Trophy Wife,” 9:30 p.m. (possible series finale), ABC; “NCIS,” 8 p.m., “NCIS: Los Angeles,” 9 p.m., and “Person of Interest,” 10 p.m., CBS; “Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge,” 9 p.m., Syfy; “Chicago Fire,” 10 p.m., NBC.

Wednesday: “Arrow,” 8 p.m., CW; “Suburgatory,” 8:30 p.m. (possible series finale), “Modern Family,” 9 p.m. (part one of two), and “Nashville,” 10 p.m., ABC; “Criminal Minds,” 9 p.m., CBS; “Legit,” 10 p.m., FX; “The Soul Man,” 10:30 p.m., TV Land.

Beginning Sunday, the networks have their Upfront presentations, where they reveal their 2014-15 schedules, so starting next Thursday, I’ll know more about whether most of the as-yet-unrenewed shows are done for good or just for the season (some fates still aren’t announced by then) and if any already renewed shows will be on the move next season. The presentation schedule is NBC, Sunday; Fox, Monday; ABC, Tuesday; CBS, Wednesday and The CW, May 15.
