Sitcoms are always there to make us laugh when we need it most. Ande when it’s time for them to go off the air, we know they’ll give us one final laugh. Some sitcoms, however, left us sitting on our couches with a look of uncertainty. These are series managed to have shockingly dark endings.

A Surprising Revelation

Most people didn’t expect a sitcom about a war to have a fairytale ending. To this day, the series finale of M*A*S*H is still the most-watched episode of any television series. “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen” features a scene where the crew reminisces about a refugee killing a chicken to silence it. Unfortunately, Hawkeye remembers that it wasn’t a chicken being killed; it was the refugee’s own baby.

One Last Drop

Two And A Half Men’s success was spoiled by the off-screen battle between Charlie Sheen and show creator Chuck Lorre. For the finale “Of Course He’s Dead,” Lorre decided to poke fun at the situation. In the final moments, Charlie Harper (played by a Sheen body-double) rings the doorbell only to have a piano drop on his head. The camera pulls back to Lorre in a director’s chair ending the show by saying, “Winning.”

An Iconic Bed Scene

Newhart was one of the most wholesome sitcoms of the ’80s. It’s a shame that none of it was real! In the series finale “The Last Newhart,” we discover that it was all a dream. Dr. Robert Hartley from The Bob Newhart Show wakes up in a cold sweat from a dream about being an innkeeper in Vermont. The scene has been parodied numerous times over the years.

Not The Mama

The folks behind Dinosaurs wanted us to remember that real dinosaurs are extinct during the finale “Changing Nature.” Unlike the rest of the series, this episode didn’t bring many laughs. While in charge, Earl accidentally causes the Ice Age. This wasn’t supposed to be the final episode; seven more were ordered after it, but ABC canceled the show before they aired.

To Be Continued…?

In the ’80s, Alf showed everyone that not all aliens are slimy and looking to eat you. The season four finale “Consider Me Gone” ended with Alf being captured by Alien Task Force. This was meant to lead into season five, but NBC canceled the show after the finale. A conclusion took place in the film Project ALF, but many fans and cast members disavowed it.
