After nine seasons on the air, ABC prepares to say goodbye to The Middle with a two part series finale next week. The episode will be titled, “A Heck of a Ride” and will air next Tuesday, May 22nd, at 8:30 EDT. The show will also be available for online streaming and ABC On Demand.

The series, which stars Everybody Loves Raymond alum, Patricia Heaton, follows the Heck family in a quirky, dysfunctional suburban home in the Midwest. Her son, Axl, plans to leave the family and move to Denver for a new job, marking the end of an era. ABC described the episode as hilarious and heartfelt.

Dancing with the Stars has also entered the last stage of competition, with a big winner being announced. With three couples remaining, competition is fierce. Each couple will be performing two dances along with a reunion of all ten athletes for a final dance. The winner will be determined based off a ‘Last Chance” live voting system in combination with last week’s viewer votes.

Dancing with the Stars kicks off on Monday, May 21st 8-9PM EDT.
