Deaths! Interrogations! Plane crashes! Breakups! Weddings! Catfights! Sex dreams! TV had it all this year. From Desperate Housewives' fitting farewell to Fringe's powerful flash-forward, 2012 served up some remarkable hours of television, and we've assembled the top 25 episodes. Which ones made the cut? Tune in all week to see the full list.
What were the best TV shows of 2012?
Here are the first five in our countdown...
Angus T. Jones
Executives at Warner Bros. TV and CBS didn't see this one coming. Nor did Two and a Half Men boss Chuck Lorre. As a matter of fact, no one did.
Angus T. Jones, who has played Men's Jake Harper since 2003, had always been a mild-mannered young star who mostly avoided press and shunned the limelight. So when a video emerged on YouTube of the 19-year-old actor saying, "If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop. I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth," it stunned everyone — and became a major news story.
Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama
Last week's binders are this week's horses and bayonets.
President Barack Obama's sarcastic knock of Governor Mitt Romney's views on the military budget — saying the military has fewer "horses and bayonets" and Navy ships than it previously did because of changing needs — was the most tweeted-about topic of last night's third and final presidential debate.
The debate overall generated 6.5 million tweets, according to official Twitter statistics — the lowest number of all three debates. The "horses and bayonets" comment alone sparked more than 105,000 tweets and also immediately spawned a parody account, @horsesbayonette.
Here's a breakdown of the 20 best celebrity tweets on the debate:
Sandra Bullock and Chelsea Handler
Our top moments of the week:
14. Best Shout-out: The gifts just keep on coming for Castle fans. Now that Castle and Beckett are together, the writer decides that they need a couple name. "So we're Brangelina now?" Beckett asks. "No, no. We're Rickate. No, we're Katick," Castle muses. "Caskett. Ooh! That's good because of the whole murder thing." Let's face it: Castle has never met a meta reference it didn't like.
13. Worst Case of Mistaken Identity: Serena and Nate go ballistic (well, Nate just turns his head to the side like a dog) when they see their respective new significant others, Steven and Sage, dining together on Gossip Girl. Serena's boyfriend, Steven, is all too...
Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson
"No more friendship... I'm done." If those words sound familiar to Real Housewives fans, that's because they are. Only two days after the longtime bond between Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice's was shattered on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the close friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney came crumbling down on Tuesday's Orange County season finale. And these are only two of the many platonic break-ups the Bravo franchise has endured in recent years. If The Bachelor has a horrible track record with romantic break-ups, The Real Housewives franchise is the queen bee when it comes to ending friendships. Need proof? Look no further than the five worst spats in Housewives history:
Real Housewives of New York
As Sonja would say, fresh season, fresh guests, fresh everything!
Following last year's massive house-cleaning, which saw the exits of Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop, the Season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City welcomed three new ladies into the lion's den. But how did the newbies fit in with veterans Sonja Morgan, LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona Singer? And was the show hurting without its former first ladies of drama ready to stir things up? We offer our instant evaluations of the new ladies...
Jill Zarin may have been fired after starring in four seasons of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she could be setting her sights on another reality show on the West Coast.
The sometimes-redhead is reportedly in talks with Fox to star in...
Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin
Jill Zarin may have been fired from The Real Housewives of New York City earlier this year after four seasons, but Bethenny Frankel isn't worried about her former co-star (and ex-BFF).
"She's a survivor and she is definitely well-to-do," Frankel told reporters at Bravo's winter TV previews Saturday. "I don't think she's worried about finding a job."
Bravo axes four Real Housewives of New York City castmembers
Zarin, 48, was one of four New York cast members fired in September after the fourth season. Frankel, 41, left the series in 2010 to film her own spin-off, Bethenny Ever After. Frankel and Zarin had a falling out shortly before Season 3 began filming. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week, Zarin said she felt she deserved a finder's fee for...
While the Girl Scouts of America believe reality TV gives young girls a skewed image of what real life should be, Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin thinks at least one of the shows could have a positive effect. In the case of Teen Mom, she believes it'll prevent girls from getting knocked up too soon.
