Last night’s series finale of ABC’s Desperate Housewives was the highest rated program on Sunday night!
The final installments of the life of the ladies of Wisteria Lane brought in 11.1 million viewers! That’s less than half the number the show averaged in its early glory days, but 15%-20% more than it had been averaging this season. The finale topped Survivor: One World as the most watched program yesterday.
On a night filled with sentiment, tears and happy endings for Bree (Marcia Cross), Gaby (Eva Longoria), Susan (Teri Hatcher) and Lynette (Felicity Huffman), there was also a brilliant performance by Kathryn Joosten as Mrs McClusky who dies at the end, and a comedic turn for Vanessa Williams who as Renee Perry tries to get to her wedding with an intact dress!
While Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry wrapped up the stories for all of his housewives, (Did you notice his cameo, when he was one of Susan’s movers?) he did drop one last secret. When Susan said farewell to Wisteria Lane, her house was bought by a young woman named Jennifer who seemed to be keeping a dark secret inside a box she hid away. Could there be a sequel somewhere down the line? Were seed planted for new ladies of Wisteria Lane? Or, was it just a nod to the humble beginnings of the series eight years ago?
So now as the dust has settled and you have had time to digest, what was your favorite moment from the finale? We had a few that touched us. Let us know! And, will you miss life on Wisteria Lane?
