Top Ten Greatest TV Moments of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

22 I Love Lucy - Lucy Works At a Chocolate Factory

This was hysterical. This is still widely remembered today.

24 Dallas - Kristin Shoots J.R.

It was such a big deal suring the summer between the first part of the episode, and the second. It was one of the biggest mysteries in television history, and many people were surprised by the outcome.

26 Newhart - The Show Turns Out to Be Just a Dream

In the series finale, Bob Newhart wakes up in his bed from his previous sitcom, The Bob Newhart Show, with his wife from the sitcom, and he tells her about his dream, and describes the premise of Newhart.

27 Survivor - Ozzy Gets Blindsided

This doesn't mean anything to anyone who does not watch the show, but Ozzy was considered an unstoppable player. It was almost impossible to win a challenge against him, and he had a hidden immunity idol to use if he ever thought he would be voted out, all which solidified his place in the final three of the game. When he lost a challenge, he was convinced he would not be voted out, and at the time nobody was planning to vote him out. It was the riskiest plan ever in the game because if he used his immunity idol, one of the people planning to blindside him would be voted out. He got too cocky, and chose not to use the idol, and was voted out with five out of the nine votes.

28 Scrubs - Ben's Funeral

Where do you think we are?

29 Degrassi - JT Gets Stabbed
30 MASH - Goodbye, Farewell & Amen

Well it's a bit of a long "moment", but it gets my vote. - Myke1

Arguably the greatest moment in mankind.
