Conjunction of 'Friday' and 'Cliffhanger'.

A particularly suspenseful ending to a TV show or story that occurs on the Friday episode so that the audience must wait the entire weekend before the conclusion/resolution.

Coined (possibly as a typographical mistake) by the subscriber 'dabbeljuh' to Max Barry's book Machine Man, which is being delivered a page a day to subscribers until complete, which typically has a 'Friffhanger' every week.
The UK Soaps 'East Enders' and 'Coronation Street' sometimes have Friffhangers. Australian soaps such as 'Home and Away' and 'Neighbours' also.
