The Top Ten

Superbowl XXXVIII - Janet Jackson Has a Wardrobe Malfunction
The superbowl is always the most watched teleision program of the year, and the halftime show was highly anticipated. Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson were both very popular at the time, and it changed the halftime shows for years to come. Since then, the halftime shows have all been performed by older male singers.
definitely have to agree
too bad I was in the bathroom at the time
anyway she's not that hot though I wish it was somebody else
the foo fighters should play next time not e-street or prince


I see London I see France I see Janet Jacksons Boobie.


2DragonBall GT - Goku and Shenron leave
Albeit this wasn't canon, and though GT itself was a bit bad, this moment was the ending all fans of this franchise yearned for; it was simply the best ending to any series, period!

I mean, seriously, this is a series almost every kid during it's air-time grew up with, and it finally ended, simply great.

By the way, to this day, the quote the narrator said followed by Goku's still brings a tear ti my eye...

Narrator: And now we end the story of the Dragonballs with the hope that the Earth will never again see the kind of darkness that brought it close to extinction so many times. But if that day comes, there is one who will step out of the shadows and fight in the name of all that is good and true!
[Goku flies away on his cloud Nimbus]
Son Goku: Until we meet again, you guys!

3Only Fools and Horses - Trotters Become Millionaires
You know it makes sense.
So funny andwell acted. Total fantasy at its best

4DragonBall Z - Goku transforms into a Super Saiyan
This moment defined my childhood for at least a year. Goku turning super saiyan was Huge...
The first time I saw goku transform into ssj1 I was mind blown.

5Top Gear - American Challenge

6Top Gear - African Challenge
Richard had a car called Oliver

7Only Fools and Horses - Dolls Pop Up

8Friends - Rachel Gets Off the Plane
People who watched this show regularly were likely to cry while watching this. The show ended absolutely perfectly with this moment.
THIS WAS SAD! So was Ross and Rachel's first kiss and Friends's last episode
That was surely THE moment for sitcoms... People can't make a show that good..EVER.


9Bottom - Eddy Dresses As Grim Reaper

10Top Gear - Cheap Police Car Challenge
James couldn't stop the Stig woth his paint guns, Richard's carpet with nails wasn't big enough and Jeremy did little damage with his spiked wheels.

The Contenders

11Top Gear - Reliant Robin Space Shuttle
This was one of the challenges that coined the phrase "ambitious but rubbish".

12Family Guy - Giant Chicken Fight
I laugh hysterically every time I watch the fights. The way which they destroy everything around them and the action is just amazing for it. No matter how many times I watch the fight I always seem to laugh and have a good time watching them. They are without a doubt my favorite parts of Family Guy, which is just an amazingly funny show to watch. This should be number 1 easily!
Hahaahahaahahaaha so funny k?

13SpongeBob Squarepants - Chocolate!
The whole part with the guy yelling "Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate" Over and Over was hilarious.


Did somebody say chocolate?
With or without nuts?


[Newest]I just want to buy all your chocolate.


142008 Summer Olympics - Michael Phelps Wins 8 Gold Medals
Nobody has ever won 8 Gold Medals in one Summer before. If you think about how long the Olympics have been around, and how many events there are, and how many people have played in them, having this record seems nearly impossible.
yeah I think he is half fish


who said that god doesn't exist? 'got your proof


15Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - John Carpenter Wins
After a while, it seemed like nobody would win the million dollars, and after ourteen of the fiteen questions, John had not used a lifeline. When it got down to the million dollar question, John used his phone-a-friend to call his dad. When his dad got on the line, he told him that he only called him to tell him that he was about to win the money, and he did.
Carpenter was crazy man. he made it look so easy


16Doctor Who - Amy Pond's Entrance

17Deadliest Warrior - Jesse James vs Al Capone Simulation

18Deadliest Warrior - Nazi Waffen SS vs Viet Cong

19Survivor - Jonny Fairplay Outwits the Producers
For any fan of reality television, this moment will not be forgotten. During a family visit, Jon's friend told him that his grandmother had passed away, and everyone believed him. The other players didn't find out until the show aired, and the producers found out when they called his house to give condolences, and the grandmother answered the phone.

20American Idol - Kelly Clarkson Wins
Kelly Clarkson completely changed the face of music, as well as television. Her winning made the show extremely popular, which led to it becoming the highest rated show of all time. American Idol became so popular that it led to the creation of Idol shows in many other countries, as well as other television shows based on singing, and shows based on other talents outside of singing. Not only did she change television, but music as well. Kelly's win helped other highly popular singers, such as Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Chris Daughtry, Leona Lewis, Jennifer Hudson, and others to break records with their success. Without her winning the first season, television, as well as music, would not be the same today.
