The spring reality season’s coming to a screeching halt, so here’s news on “American Idol,” “Dancing with the Stars” and “Survivor” finales.

Plus, “The Sing Off” will join the fall reality schedule on a full-time basis.

‘American Idol’ finale goes country teen???

What the hell happened on “American Idol” and what were viewers smoking?

“AI” hired A-list judges and brushed up its format, but it’s going to be a very dull Wednesday finale.

In the end, voters chose squeaky-clean — and very boring — country teen singers Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina as the finalists.

Stick a fork in it, “American Idol’s” done.

Is that why Cee Lo Green announced that “The Voice” judges would be back for round two of the show?

Stay tuned.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ finale

We don’t know if it’s Scientology or John Travolta’s coaching, but Kirstie Alley is one of the final “Dancing with the Stars” contenders.

Alley will compete against Disney kid Chelsea Kane and football pro Hines Ward for tonight’s disco ball trophy.

Now that’s a sign of the Apocalypse. If you’re reading this, the world didn’t end on Saturday.

‘Survivor’ Wrap-Up

The “Survivor: Redemption Island” finale drew in a whopping 12 million viewers.

Boston Rob Mariano made his fourth attempt to win the game and finally won the “Survivor” title. Yeah, he outwitted, outplayed and outlasted the rest of the tribe. His strategies were pretty manipulative, but he was the player to take home the million bucks.

“Survivor: South Pacific” will debut this fall — with the return of Redemption Island. Plus, two past “Survivors” will return to cause mayhem. Last time around, it was Boston Rob and the evil Russell Hantz.

Hantz was hated by his tribe members and was immediately voted off “Survivor: Redemption Island.”

That’s OK, ’cause the conniving player scored an A&E house flipping show — called “Flipped.”

And that’s flipping weird.

‘The Sing Off’

TV networks are heading into talent competition overdrive.

NBC loves “The Voice,” so the network green-lighted “The Sing Off” to become a full-fledged series. The a cappella contest will air Mondays this fall.

Here’s the question — how many reality talent shows can viewers take before they run screaming for “How I Met Your Mother” re-runs?
