1 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.

5 Top Gear - American Challenge

They got chased out of Alabama by angry rednecks, they almost crashed into alligator infested rivers and they had to live of roadkill for a night.

That special were the start point to the TG Specials with the amazing and funny trips! - Anton110

6 Top Gear - African Challenge

Richard had a car called Oliver

7 Only Fools and Horses - Dolls Pop Up
8 Friends - 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. - ishaantiwari

9 Bottom - Eddy Dresses As Grim Reaper
10 Top 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

11 Top Gear - Reliant Robin Space Shuttle

This was one of the challenges that coined the phrase "ambitious but rubbish".

Impossible to watch this without laugh. - Anton110

12 Family 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!

14 2008 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.

15 Doctor Who - Amy Pond's Entrance
16 Who 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

17 Deadliest Warrior - Jesse James vs Al Capone Simulation
18 Deadliest Warrior - Nazi Waffen SS vs Viet Cong
19 Survivor - 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.

20 American 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.
