Yeah I'd say the whole "who shot J.R." storyline was the first (or one of the first) big season finales for a TV show. And eventually more shows started doing them in the 80s and it's just gotten more common since then. If there were any shows that did a big season finale before 1980 I'm not aware of them. But it would be interesting to know if anybody else remembers anything like that on a TV series before 1980.
