Everyone knows where they were when they're favorite show ended, they were glued to the TV. When you spent 11 seasons, or 5 seasons watching a show, you feel as if you become a part of it. The characters become your friends, and their world becomes an escape from your own. So when as show leaves the air there's a a big hole, most of the time the series will try to answer all the questions that 100+ episodes have left you with and let everyone go off and lead happy lives...which can sometimes really suck. But that's not the case for these shows, these are the shows that ended the right way. You can vote up the ones your think did it best, and vote down the worst, or even better add your own!.

MASH lasted 11 seasons and ended in a two-and a half hour TV movie that aired Feb. 28, 1983 and is still the highest rated series finale ever. By the end of the episode, the war has drawn to an exhausted close, and the residents of the 4077th are scattering after many tearful farewells. The teariest is saved for last. As Hawkeye (Alan Alda) takes off in a chopper, he spies a message from his old pal B.J. (Mike Farrell): ''Goodbye'' spelled out in stones on the launch pad.

Bob Newhart had co created and starred in not one, but two of the most beloved tv shows of the 80's, the Bob Newhart show and Newhart. They were both critically acclaimed and when it came time for Newhart to end, they treated everyone to an amazing twist ending. It turns out the entire show was a dream as Bob turns over in his bed to talk to his wife from the original Bob Newhart Show.
