TV.com Top 100 Everything of 2008: 91-100

Scour the Internet and you'll find a bunch of the same top 10 lists out there: Top Ten Shows, Top Ten Actors, Top Ten Reality Moments, and so forth. We decided to wrap up 2008 with a little more fun than the typical list gives.

In this gargantuan Top 100 list, we go a little out of the box by looking at specific elements of television--both on-screen and off-screen--that we thought were the most memorable this year. We'll put up 10 more each weekday through January 2nd, so be sure to check the site often. Until next year, Happy Holidays!

100. Horatio Caine's sunglasses

We're still not sick of the "Sunglasses of Justice" from CSI Miami, the only piece of apparel to make the list and with good reason. As Horatio's trademark, the Silhouette Titanium Model 8568 helps the crime lab supervisor catch criminals…especially the ones that are…shady. (cue the Who!)

99. Cappie from Greek

Like most fans of Greek, we're rooting for Cappie in ABC Family's best love triangle (although the way people get between the covers in the show, it may be a love octagon by now). Smart, laid-backed, and funny, Cappie's the non-frat fratboy that you may not mind dating your sister/daughter/grandmother/pet chihuahua.

98. The blonde-ness of The Girls Next Door

We watch this guilty pleasure for the articles, but it's hard to ignore the near-platinum trio of Hef's ladies. They can be catty, attention whores, and magnets for trouble, but they always entertain and make us glad we don't have to live at the Playboy Mansion... wait a sec.

97. Lostpedia.com

The go-to source for all your Lost needs, Lostpedia helps us make sense of what we just watched and catches us up on the little details we missed. If it happens in the Lost universe, it's there. Get extensive background information on Vincent the dog, but beware of spoilers!

96. Michael and Holly's relationship in The Office

Finding a perfect mate for Michael Scott is like finding a nugget of Battlestar Galactica trivia that Dwight doesn't know--damn near impossible. But Holly (Amy Ryan) and Michael were a great fit, and became the relationship to root for (sorry, we're sick of Jim and Pam!). Here's hoping Holly comes back.

95. "I'm Chuck Bass"

As Gossip Girl's resident evil bastard, Chuck Bass is devilishly fun to watch. But his calling card is his "I'm Chuck Bass" line; the delivery of that pompous proclamation always stops us in our tracks. How do you respond to that?

94. Captain Hammer from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog

Nathan Fillion "nails" this performance as the nemesis to Dr. Horrible. Cocky, naive, and not the sharpest tool, Hammer is absolutely hilarious in Joss Whedon's Web-based project--and that singing voice ain't too shabby either.

93. Showtime On-Demand

Oh Showtime, you serve us well. With programs like The Tudors, Weeds, Dexter, and Californication at our fingertips whenever we want, you really make us the couch potatoes we are.

92. The ridiculous Darlings of Dirty Sexy Money

It's hard to pick a favorite Darling (the filthy rich clan at the center of the waaaaayyy over-the-top Dirty Sexy Money), because they're all so delightfully delicious in their own way. Ditzy Karen makes us absent-minded with her eyes, political Patrick's devotion to his transgender lover is eye-popping, and Brian's fits of rage are hysterical. A television family rich in wealth and, more importantly, eccentricities.

91. The opening credits of Chuck

Both slick and cartoonish, the opening credits of NBC's Chuck (video here) capture the show's tone masterfully and start it out on the right foot. And could there be a better musical match than Cake?

Check out more TV.com lists here, and be sure to check back tomorrow for numbers 81-90!

I am glad someone else think the credits are good also. It matches the show both in slickness and silliness

Chuck is one of the few shows on TV with a proper opening. It's very remincent of the openings from many classic shows. In a time when there's more effort being made to eliminate opening credit rolls, it's nice to see one that actually does a decent job.

Number 96, Holly and Michael's relationship was really sweet but to say that you guys are sick of Jim and Pam is just a real pity because it is still one of the reasons why I watch the office.

I actually think it should be H's talking-out-of-the-side-of-your-shoulder gig, more than the sunglasses, but they're pretty cool still. Ofcourse rooting for Cappie. "I'm Chuck Bass" awesome. Special mention to: The Darlings, and Chuck's opening credits

Chuck Bass is some messed up person on the show. I still can't believe he slept with Blair http://www.entertonement.com/clips/18022/Ed-Westwick/Chuck-Bass/Gossip-Girl/Have-Sex-With-Me

I actually get some references on a top something list on tv.com? wow what a day. Love the Horatio sunglasses thing, my entire family jokes about that one. Michael and Holly's relationship. Cappie was on the list? Since when is Greek ever acknowledged for anything? And the Chuck opening credits are amazingly perfect.

If it were up to me, the "I'm Chuck Bass" line would be much higher, probably in the first top10, maybe even in top5. it's catchy and always has been used in the right place. Darlings of DSM are funny in stupid way, but love that show too. waiting for the next top 10 :)

I'm chuck bass is just so f*cking hot! Captain Hammer was so amazing :D and the opening credits of Chuck are cool... this is a really good idea for a countdown, maybe I will do one too :D

Cappie is definitely worth rooting for on Greek. I still think him and Casey should be together. But Rebecca is a good choice for him too.



Chuck Bass is so evil. It's perfect. I couldn't think of any greater villain without some sort of comic background.



Captain Hammer was hillarious. Joss Whedon is definitely a god.



The Darlings are awesome. I love all of them. I just miss Somaire Armstrong on the show. She was my favorite part of The OC and one of the reasons I first tuned into this show. I'll miss this once it's gone.



The opening credits of Chuck. I don't think there's anything to say but Josh Schwartz rules.

Wait, what do you mean 91-100, I HAVE TO WAIT for the rest....ohhh poor old me!!!!Brilliant...."I'm Chuck Bass". Hope that Charlie Crews and his fruit make the list (hmmm that sounded slightly pornografic).

If Captain Hammer & Lostpedia are in 91-100, I can't wait to see what goes into the Top 90 before the end of the year. I can't wait to see #1 --maybe the frozen donkey wheel on Lost's season 4 finale?
