HI HI HI. So this week is … a lot. We’ve got the Upfronts, we’ve got the series finale of Game of Thrones, we’ve got the premiere of The Bachelorette. I am drowning. To save myself, I’m going to do very brief daily posts, and focus instead on the Upfronts news. And drink. A lot.
In the meantime, there are a whole lot of finales — and by “whole lot,” I mean “more than 25” — happening this week, and not just Game of Thrones. You can check them all out right here.
