  • The season finale.

    The Secret Life of the American Teenager was the breakout cable series of 2008, garnering higher ratings than its demographic competition Gossip Girl when on Mondays, and 90210 when on Tuesdays. You have to wonder why The CW did not make a play for this show, but that network has made so many mistakes over its short history I will not get into it here. For a season finale this was pretty disappointing, and felt like more of a mid-season episode than a wrap-up period. They did squash Adrian and Jack's short flings, but it is hard to remain sanguine about the upcoming season with how quickly things have faltered. One of the problems with One Tree Hill's last two seasons is how everybody became best buddies forever, eliminating the intense drama that made the bad acting somewhat tolerable. I have a feeling The Secret Life is going to make that same mistake.
