"Desperate Housewives" series finale -- The week is stuffed with season finales, so many that we couldn't squeeze them all in. But we weren't about to ignore the swan song of a milestone show. "Desperate Housewives," which is ending its eight-year run, clearly was past its prime a long time ago. But that doesn't take away the fact that it was a ratings blockbuster and cultural phenomenon back in 2004 when it introduced us to the women of Wisteria Lane. The "splashy" two-hour finale revolves around Bree's (Marcia Cross) murder trial, Renee's (Vanessa Williams) impending wedding, Susan's (Teri Hatcher) secret attempt to sell her house and Mrs. McCluskey's (Kathryn Joosten) preparations to deal with the final stages of her lung cancer. A couple of familiar faces will also return for the farewell episode: Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) and the late Mrs. Huber. 8:01 p.m. today, KTVX Channel 4.
