    Too many season finale’s tonight–may need to avoid twitter for a while. :) Not sure how West Coasters do it–people seem to tweet spoilers as the shows are airing on the east coast.
    For some reason I thought it was the Flashforward finale tonight–should have watched something else instead.

    Kyle, Yes, Thursday seemed to be the day that had the most shows ending on the same date.

    I tend to ignore Twitter and such starting at about 5:00 p.m. here on the west coast when there are shows I don’t want to learn anything about until I’ve seen it myself.
