TV.com's Top 100 Everything of 2009: 60-51

Here at TV.com, we take our year-end list-making very seriously. So as another year comes to a close, we present to you our second annual TV.com Top 100, the massive 10-part list of the year's most awesome TV happenings. As always, there were huge, mind-blowing events and tiny, heart-wrenching moments. Phenomenal send-offs and welcome hellos. Incredibly well-written plots and some really great, totally-not-annoying characters. After 365 days of watching TV, here's what we loved the most.

We're posting 10 items each weekday through January 1, so check back often to see what made the cut!

60. Lem and Phil on Better Off Ted

Their interactions, facial expressions, word choices—basically everything about them is hysterical.

59. Mac vs. PC ads

Still so friendly and clever after all these years, the ads have made America's most-likable pitchmen out of Justin Long and John Hodgman.

58. Titus Welliver

The perennial character actor nailed three of the best guest spots ever: An Irish mob boss on Sons of Anarchy, Jacob's nemesis on Lost, and one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on Supernatural.

57. Intervention

Totally addicting. We were especially astonished by "Linda," the best evocation of manipulative behavior we've ever seen on TV.

56. The finale of Battlestar Galactica

It was grand and overly dramatic—and we loved every second of it. A great send-off for one of TV's greatest shows

55. Lisa Kudrow's wacko Web Therapy

Though it was basically an excuse to advertise Lexuses, the series of web shorts was still wonderful and weird.

54. The Situation

Yep, that's his name. The Jersey Shore breakout star is so ridiculous he's almost lovable. Almost.

53. The MLB Network

A must-have subscription channel for fans, with the best baseball coverage on television.

52. Al Gore on 30 Rock—again

The former veep's solemn message—that to solve the climate-change problem we must "recycle everything, including jokes"—ended brilliantly when Gore departed Rock Center to save a whale (which is exactly how is first guest appearance ended in Season 3).

51. The CW's OMG Moment of the Year

There are no words... Well, except "Oh," "My," and "God."

Battlestar Galactica's finale blowed. Someone mentioned in the forums that the scene where Adama throws up on himself was what the finale was like, I completely agree. This should not be on the list.

The battlestar finale was awesome, but better viewed if you watch the whole 4th season in sequence without the 4 to 5 month gap in the middle. Then you get the whole concept of the series, which was very grand. I feel for those who cannot get it.

I checked this list out to see which of the top 10 spots the Finale of BSG would garner. Since it's outrageously been placed at #56 I guess I can stop checking the daily updates. BSG was an incredible show and the Finale was moving beyond words.

WTF?! The Mac vs. PC ads?!?! Those things are full of so much BS and misinformation I'm surprised they're even allowed to air.

The finale of Battlestar Galactica is number 56? Omg, seriously? I can't wait to see 10-1 if that's the case. Battlestar Galactica's finale was legendary and it's on 56. It's outrageous!

Ahahah the dog ate the heart... That's a first ^^
Don't know what show it is, but it seems so damn ridiculous that I don't want to see it.

Only two things deserved to be on this list, the rest don't even deserve mention.
