We prove the existence of a finite extinction time for the solutions of the Dirichiet problem for the total variational flow. For the Neumann problem, we prove that the solutions reach the average of its initial datum in finite time. The asymptotic profile of the solutions of the Dirichlet problem is also studied. It is shown that the profiles are non zero solutions of an eigenvalue type problem which seems to be unexplored in the previous literature. The propagation of the support is analyzed in the radial case showing a behaviour enterely different to the case of the problem associated to the p-Laplacian operator. Finally, the study of the radially symmetric case allows us to point out other qualitative properties which are peculiar of this special class of quasilinear equations.
