"Desperate Housewives" Ending? It's Time

Pin It

Desperate housewivesI'm sure y'all have heard by now that after eight seasons, "Desperate Housewives" will come to an end in May 2012.

As a fan of the show from the beginning, I freely admit, it's about time.  Let's face it, the show has pretty much been coasting for the last couple of years.

Except for a few random laughs courtesy of Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher, and some warm and fuzzy moments courtesy of Marcia Cross and Doug Savant, the show was just barely entertaining and I would watch primarily out of habit.

Creator Marc Cherry had it right when it was announced the show was coming to an end:

One of the things you see in television is shows that overstay their welcome. People just forget about them and they're unceremoniously booted off. I wanted to go off while we were still doing well.



Let's hope he uses the final season to let the cast shine, and to tell some compelling and of course, funny final tales from Wisteria Lane.
