America Ferrera and Annie Werschling
Lots of things came to an end this week on TV — for better and for worse. Blair dumped Chuck on Gossip Girl and House's Cameron and Chase signed their divorce papers. Jack got up for a glass of water, and in an instant, his 24 lady-love Renee was killed by a sniper. But not all the endings were bad. Dean finally outsmarted Zachariah on Supernatural, Betty Suarez got her happily-ever-after, and Melrose Place went out — we think — with a slap. Welcome to Top Moments: Hard to Say Goodbye Edition.
Zach Levi, Emily Deschanel
This week television was all about love and violence. Desmond hinted that love may be the secret at the, ahem, heart of Lost. The American Idol judges showed Big Mike some love. A Criminal Minds pair met cute amidst gunfire. Chuck showed Sarah his love...with a bullet. (Oh, and Bones and Booth kissed!) Welcome to Top Moments: Kissing and Killing Edition.
Morena Baccarin and Kate Gosselin
Television is rife with ethically dubious characters. This week a bunch of them made us laugh, cry and cheer their misdeeds. Gossip Girl's Little J set her sights on her stepsister's boyfriend, Southland's Detective Bryant saw a young mentee become a murderer, Jesse exacted delicious revenge on his already exhausted parents on Breaking Bad, and Anna, V's alien den mother, followed up some really weird sex with a little cannibalism. Welcome to Top Moments: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Edition.
Joe Biden, Pamela Anderson
TV went big this week. Desperate Housewives' Katherine picked the worst possible moment for a heart-to-heart. Some Amazing Race contestants made a mistake of Biblical proportions. Breaking Bad made its play to be the best show on the air. And — as our noble leaders are duly elected to do — Vice President Joe Biden put everything in perspective. Welcome to Top Moments, Big F---ing Deal Edition...
Julianna Margulies, Tiger Woods
This week, TV confused us. On Ugly Betty, little Justin kissed a girl... and a boy. Lost threw us for a loop by making bad-boy Sawyer a cop. American Idol's Kara DioGuardi made us ask: Ignorance or just a really dry sense of humor? And the titular heroine of The Good Wife went bad, cheating on her cheating husband with her attentive boss. Welcome to Top Moments: Land of Confusion Edition.
24, Modern Family
This week of television included lots of moving and shaking: The Oscars proved that an awards show about movies is no place for dancing. House's Wilson frolicked as a woodland nympho, er, nymph. The winds of change came to Big Love. A suicide bomber went splat on 24. And the gifted players of Modern Family mimed their way to the funny. Welcome to Top Moments: Bodies in Motion Edition.
Jake Pavelka, Penelope Cruz
TV was all about body parts this week. Jules creepily enlisted her son in her hair-removal regimen on Cougar Town. Those cheeky Canadians poked fun at their Olympic cauldron's bum leg. Penélope Cruz got personal with Halle Berry. And now that the Office baby has arrived, it's a perfect time for a good breastfeeding joke, isn't it? Welcome to Top Moments: Body of Work Edition.
12. Weirdest Mother-Son Moment: On Cougar Town, Jules needs help removing the wax-coated strips she uses to depilate her underarms. Grayson delights in the job, but he's not around. Who better to sub for him than Travis, Jules' put-upon, eye-rolling teenaged son? His discomfort is hilarious.
11. Best Do-Over: After getting the Winter Olympics off on the wrong foot, er, leg, with a cauldron malfunction...
Nadya Suleman, Lost
TV was all in the family this week. Damages' Carol Tobin kept her dead father's secrets by killing his mistress. Brother cowboys Cord and Jet had fun with hats on The Amazing Race. Kourtney Kardashian gave the doctors a hand in the delivery of her son. Lost's Jack has a son! And Octomon charmed the ladies of The View — and America — with a laugh as gentle and full-throated as a well-aged Cabernet. Welcome to Top Moments: Family Style Edition!
Emilie De Ravin, Paula Abdul
The calendar may say February, but it might as well be Halloween with all the ghosts on TV this week. Jay Leno and David Letterman revisit their tortured past, Hiro mourns his lost-in-time love on Heroes, The Good Wife's cheating husband has come home to roost, Claire returns on Lost and the specter of Paula Abdul is straight-up haunting American Idol's Hollywood Week. Welcome to Top Moments: Ghosts of TV Past Edition.
Naveen Andrews, Mel Gibson
It was fun this week to watch from our lofty sofa perches and judge our favorite TV personalities. We were surprised that Mel Gibson still hasn't learned when not to talk. We scoffed at an American Idol hopeful's figuratively naked (and almost literally naked) attempt to gimmick his way to Hollywood. And we counted our own blessings as Fringe and Lost toyed with the lives of three very unfortunate souls — or was it four souls? Welcome to Top Moments, Harsh Judgment Edition.
