Ray Romano says the series finale of "Everybody Loves Raymond" will be just like any other episode.

"We don't have a lot of loose ends to tie up," the actor told AP Radio. "We don't do story arcs, and we don't have (any) cliffhangers."

While Romano wouldn't divulge any secrets, he promised that the ending won't be sappy.

"The expectation is for it to have a little emotional resonance, but it won't be overly done," he said. "We just want it to be funny."

On that note, Romano says he'll be appearing on David Letterman's show when the finale airs next Monday.

"I think we're going to have a viewing party that night," he said. "The cast is going to be there also, and the writers — we're all going to watch it together. When we watch it on May 16 — I'm trying to envision that, and I see that as being a landmark in my life."

"Everybody Loves Raymond" airs its final episode on May 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
