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 Contenders

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

Clearly the most heartbreaking moment of the entire series

12 The Sopranos: Adriana La Cerva Gets Murdered
13 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.

14 Doctor Who: The End of Time Pt. 2
15 Rugrats: Mother's Day

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

16 SpongeBob: Welcome to the Chum Bucket
17 The Office - Goodbye, Michael
18 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

19 Rugrats: The Mother's Day Special
20 Puella Magi Madoka Magica: My best friend

The end part just BROKE ME. Right there. In one second. - TwilightKitsune
