Top 10 Saddest TV Show Episodes/Moments

I did not add any episodes of children's shows because there is already a list of the saddest Children's Shows episodes. However, if you want to add episodes of children's shows (Rugrats, SpongeBob, Blue's Clues, Lilo and Stitch, Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, etc.), then you can. But do not complain that this list does not contain episodes from Nickelodeon's, Cartoon Network's, Disney Channel's, PBS Kids', or Kids Blocks' TV shows. The same thing goes with animated adult shows like the Simpsons. Also, these are listed in ABC order, so not-so-sad items may be high on this list and vice versa. If you disagree with this list, then I still respect your opinion. However, if you think this is a terrible list, then please do not comment.

The Top Ten

1 Downtown Abbey: Lady Cybil Crawley Dies Downtown Abbey: Lady Cybil Crawley Dies

There are no words to describe the amount of guilt Hawkeye must have felt in this episode. It wasn't a chicken!

7 Newsradio: Bill Moves On
8 Rosanne: Into That Good Night (Series Finale) Rosanne: Into That Good Night (Series Finale)

The Contenders

12 How I Met Your Mother: Marshall's Father Death

Clearly the most heartbreaking moment of the entire series

13 The Sopranos: Adriana La Cerva Gets Murdered
14 Hey Arnold!: Parent's Day Hey Arnold!: Parent's Day

It's so sad! Poor Arnold being an orphan and all. Then that jerk, Big Bob Pataki has to blab out, "orphan! " and make everything worse. Good on Helga for letting Arnold and his grandparents win. She rocks.

15 Doctor Who: The End of Time Pt. 2

17 Rugrats: Mother's Day

Did not mean to add that twice. Sorry! - anonygirl

18 SpongeBob: Welcome to the Chum Bucket
19 Find Her, Keep Her: The New Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh

This was a very sad episode... "You don't need me to tell you a bedtime story...
You don't need me for anything..."

This was the best - yet saddest episode of the series. Kessie was one of the best characters. :D
