TV.com's Top 100 Everything of 2009: 20-11

We're down to the final 20!

20. Aaron Paul as Jesse on Breaking Bad

His lil' thug thing is hilarious, but it was his complete emotional breakdown and vulnerability that made his performance Emmy worthy. (Warning: This video contains drug use, and drugs are bad.)

19. The Discovery Channel's "I Love the World" promo

Boom-de-yada!

18. Mad Men's January Jones

Specifically, her performance when Betty Draper finally confronted Don about his past. She pulled something from her soul to deliver a haunting, mature, portrait of a disturbed housewife.

17. Susan Boyle's first performance on Britain's Got Talent

We've watched the video a jazillion times, not just for the singing but for the judges' reactions. (Click the photo to see the video.)

16. Adam Lambert singing "Mad World"

The American Idol contestant finally reined in his voice and delivered a stunning performance.

15. Bones undresses Booth

To collect evidence, of course. Hot, hot, hot!

14. Stephen Colbert sponsors the U.S. Speedskating Team

He is America and so can you!

13. Glee

The show has discovered the magic formula that is two parts kitsch, one part harsh reality, and three parts warm-and-fuzzy feelings.

12. Saturday Night Live's
"Mother Lover"

Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg reprise their roles as the "D**k in a Box" guys in a scheme to give their moms, played by Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson, something extra special for Mother's Day.

11. Joaquin Phoenix on
Late Show

We're still waiting for that hip-hop debut, Joaquin...

The list was good so far but Dexter's finale, John Lithgow's performance and Breaking bad' season 2 better be on that final 10 list.
