ABC announces finale schedule

'Dancing with the Stars' to wrap May 25

ABC put the finishing touches on its finale timetable Thursday — but with few surprises.

As previously announced, “Lost” will wind down on Sunday, May 23 with a recap special at 8 p.m, the two-hour finale at 9 p.m. and a special “Jimmy Kimmel Live” tribute at 11:35 p.m.

That means the net’s Sunday night sked (with the exception of “America’s Funniest Home Videos”) will end their season on Sunday, May 16.

The final week of the season will be “Dancing with the Stars”-heavy, as the one-hour performance wrap up takes place on Monday, May 24 at 8 p.m., while the two-hour results show runs on May 25 at 9 p.m.

That’s the same night as “American Idol’s” final performance show.

“Grey’s Anatomy” ends with a two-hour capper on Thursday, May 20, which means “Private Practice” is done on May 13.

Because it returned so late, “FlashForward” will actually spill out of the season, with its final episode on Thursday, May 27 — the day after the TV year ends.

Other enders include ABC’s Wednesday night laffers on May 19; “V” wraps up on Tuesday, May 18; and “Castle” winds down on Monday, May 17.

ABC had already announced that “Ugly Betty” airs its series finale on April 14. And quickie reality skein “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” is done on April 23.
