Twitter Curates Lineup of TV Endings Worse Than 'Game of Thrones,' Names 'Dexter', 'Lost' and More

Game of Thrones is over, and some fans have said it ended with the worst television conclusion of all time. For a show so monumental, the shortcomings of Season 8 were unexpected and disappointing to many. Between Sunday night and Monday morning, Twitter users discussed other underwhelming finales to show Game of Thrones fans it could be worse.

Here are some of the television titles that appeared most frequently in Twitter's dissection.


For many Twitter users, Dexter was the worst TV finale of all time. This is reflected in the show's Season 8 Rotten Tomatoes score, which show the audience had a 50 percent approval, while critics game the final season an embarrassingly low 35 percent. Critic comments also claim the show deserved better than the ending, which the majority of commenters said fell flat.

How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Your Mother has long been remembered as a show with a frustrating ending. The entire season asks a question: Who are Ted Mosby's kids? While the answer was presented, many fans were upset at how out of touch the reveal was.


For a drama series, Lost may have one of the most stereotypical "bad endings." However, the ending wasn't nearly as clear as the show's creators expected. Lost fans were torn. Some thought the ending was dumb, while others were left with more questions than answers.

True Blood

True Blood was one of the most-referenced finales on Twitter Monday. The series seemingly dropped in quality during its last two seasons, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Both were rated only 44 percent.


Seinfeld's final season also did not fare well on the Rotten Tomatoes scoring system. While the series as a whole generally gained great critic and audience approval, Season 9 had an astonishingly low 50 percent approval. According to critics, the end was a "terrible letdown."

The Sopranos

The Sopranos Rotten Tomatoes page doesn't reflect the series-end backlash Twitter users gave the series on Monday. Most commented that the ending was anticlimactic, rather than memorable.
