The CW has given fans a very early Christmas present:

Lumps of coal in their television-viewing stockings!

We mostly kid, but the network has come out with its calendar of fall finales, as all programs will take a long hiatus next month, likely returning at some point in February.

What will you do with this sudden expansion of free time? Simply watch TV online instead, we presume, though you could spend it with your family... we suppose.

Spoiler alert: Jason Momoa didn't last very long on Game of Thrones, but like Sean Bean - who lost his head as the righteous Ned Stark - the previously unknown actor created one of the series' most memorable and iconic characters, despite not even surviving season one.

Not a bad gig. Perhaps that explains why Momoa went full-Dothraki psycho while he was auditioning:

Hmm ... too understated. Can you try that again with some feeling?!
