Viewers who still have the final season of Boardwalk Empire sitting on their TiVo to-watch list were fuming Sunday night after the Emmy awards aired a montage that spoiled the finales of several popular shows.

During the broadcast, Emmy producers aired a video tribute to shows that have ended their runs this year, including Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Sons of Anarchy, Two and a Half Men, and various late-nights shows like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report.

But producers chose pivotal clips from those shows’ series finales to include in the montage, effectively ruining the shows for fans that hadn’t yet caught up.

“Welcome back to the Spoiler Awards,” host Andy Samberg told the audience after the montage ended.

Of course, viewers took to Twitter to complain:
