Top Moments: Housewives, The Hills and Deadliest Catch Get Real

Kristin Cavallari, Capt. Phil Harris

What is reality? This is a question best posed by philosophers and the stoner kids at your high school. But also by producers of reality shows, who love to toy with our expectations. This week, we look at a few scripted shows that filled us with real emotions. And, more amazingly, reality shows that did the same. (Not that all these emotions were good: Looking at you, Real Housewives of New Jersey.) Welcome to Top Moments, Reeling in Reality Edition.

13. Worst Decision: On Entourage, an obviously concussed Vince unilaterally decides to cut off his signature curly locks. (You can imagine Keri Russell sitting at home and saying with a sigh: "They never learn.") We hope he's not... read more

Top Moments: Comics Gone Wild on Colbert, Louie and... the Emmys?

Steve Carell and Ricky Gervais

This week television was overstuffed with funny people — intentional and otherwise. Bethenny Frankel injected some levity into her solemn nuptials. ESPN analysts made us chuckle by painstakingly stretching out four little words — "I'm going to Miami" — to nearly a half-hour. Joel McHale and Jay Leno were both good sports about not receiving Emmy nominations. Ricky Gervais was just what the doctor ordered. And Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert reunited, and the angels sang in comedy heaven. Welcome to Top Moments: Make 'Em Laugh Edition.

Top Moments: Risky Business on Entourage, True Blood and The Bachelorette

True Blood, The Bachelorette

TV took a few risks this week. Entourage's Ari betrayed a client. An artist created a shocking portrait of a beloved Disney character. True Blood had us clutching our pearls at a genuinely revolting vampire sex scene. James Franco made us worry about his career choices. And Bachelorette Ali sent a potential suitor hobbling off into the sunset.

American Ingenuity: Jimmy Kimmel's Dark Room, a Record-Breaker at Wimbledon and a World Cup Stunner

Jimmy Kimmel, Landon Donovan

We're no xenophobes, but television had us feeling rather patriotic this week. Treme made us bow our heads for the Louisiana bayou. Top Chef aimed at improving our kids' school lunches. American John Isner triumphed in a record-breaking Wimbledon match. Jimmy Kimmel made lemonade out of a lemon-y electrical problem. And the U.S. World Cup team's last-minute victory had us waving a giant foam finger that says "We're No. 1." — tastefully, of course. Welcome to Top Moments: American Ingenuity Edition.

Top Moments: Kasey's Ink, Kathy's Kiss and Green's Fumble Are Our Favorite Mistakes

The Bachelorette, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List

TV isn't perfect; sometimes it shows us mistakes. A Top Chef hopeful decided to make — gasp! — dessert. Jesse pulled the trigger on Breaking Bad. Kathy Griffin put the moves on Christopher Meloni. The Bachelorette's Kasey got a tattoo. And England's Rob Green — well, he knows what he did. He'll be rewatching it in his vuvuzela-scored nightmares for years to come. Welcome to Top Moments: Our Favorite Mistakes Edition.

Top Moments' Twist Endings: Glee's Sue Has a Heart and Breaking Bad's Walt Is a Killer

Tom Cruise and Jane Lynch

This week's TV was full of twist endings. Lie to Me's killer let his kid sister drown for the paltriest of reasons. United States of Tara's fractured heroine turned out to have a secret half-brother. Raylan let his nemesis escape on Justified. Sue Sylvester, of all people, came to Mr. Schu's rescue on Glee. And on Breaking Bad, Walt killed someone to save the partner who causes many of his troubles. Welcome to Top Moments: He Was Dead the Whole Time Edition... read more

Top Moments: Glee, The Bachelorette and Baseball Get Awkward

The Bachelorette, Glee

There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.

Top Moments: Lost Lets Go, 24 Moves On and Idol Says Goodbye

Lost - Matthew Fox, 24 - Kiefer Sutherland

Season finales provided a lot of healthy closure this week, at least according to our shrink Mitzi Cohen-McGinty, Ph.D. She says that The Biggest Loser is not just about how we look on the outside. She praised Glee for showing us that there is no "right" when it comes to the relationship between a child and the mother who gave her up for adoption. She thinks Jack and Chloe are totally 24's most codependent coworkers, so it's good that they've decided to spend some time apart. And finally, according to Dr. Cohen-McGinty, Lost's season finale is just a metaphor for the journey to self-actualization that we all must take — except, you know, while we're still truckin' on this mortal coil — and preferably from the couch of her stately Upper West Side salon. Welcome to Top Moments: Everybody in Therapy Edition.

Top Moments: A House Kiss, Office Love, and Grey's Guns

Patrick Dempsey, Hugh Laurie

Who didn't get grievously injured on television this week? Gunshots rang out on One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order: SVU. CSI had a stabbing, while Miley Cyrus murdered good taste on Dancing with the Stars. (Thank God romance still has a fighting chance on The Office and House.) Welcome to Top Moments: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang Edition.
