A TOC is based on the paragraph styles you've defined in Layout > Table of Contents.
You probably have the paragraph style used in the TOC applied to empty paragraph returns. If you view in the Story Editor (Cmd/Ctrl-Y), it shows the paragraph styles applied to paragraphs in the column on the left and you might be able to see where they are.
I am absolutely sure the styles are only applied as needed.
Is this just my InDesign CC Version then?
Please try to set up a small document and insert a TOC. Every time two blank lines are automatically added at the end of the TOC.
I just did a test on a small file in InDesign CC. I get one blank line (see below—the # is an end-of-story character).
It may be a bug in InDesign CC. You'll have to search/replace to delete or run a script to delete it in the meantime.
Here's where to report a bug:

For as long as I can remember there has been a blank line at the end of a TOC when it is generated. Just one of those minor annoyances you learn to live with.
Well, actually it's two lines, since the end of story should be right behind the last entry.
Did no one ever report this?
So everytime I update the TOC I have to manually edit it?
I feel it is a bug. And I've reported it. But it hasn't been fixed in quite a few versions.
My problem with it is if I delete the extra return it comes back when I update the TOC. And if I contract the frame to the exact size of the shortened TOC I keep getting an overflow when I update it. And I HATE sending anything out with an overflow.

thank you. That is exactly my opinion.
