TV.com's Top 100 Everything of 2009: 80-71

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!

80. Dennis and Mac's break-up
on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

It's so hard to say goodbye, and yet so funny—at least when they did it.

79. Jeff and his unique vocabulary on Big Brother

"Technotronics" was particularly great.

78. Conan O'Brien

His self-deprecating humor, his awkward timing, his everything. Oh, and this Comcastic video.

77. Drugs! Drugs! Drugs!

Litanies of side effects on drug commercials. We collect them on DVR (kidding!). Look at this one. Want new
eye lashes? All it's gonna cost you is
your eye color!

76. Nip/Tuck's Season 6 Promo

Sexy. Scary. Awesome.

75. True Blood's Fellowship of the Sun

A terrifyingly accurate depiction of religious crazies.

74. Grey’s Anatomy's “Give Peace a Chance” episode

When Derek attempted a difficult surgery, it captured everything that's great about the show.

73. TNT saving Southland

If only the cable nets had also saved Pushing Daisies, Kings, and The Unusuals.

72. The Daily Show wins, again

Stewart and the gang picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music, or Comedy Program, offering hope for thinking persons everywhere.

71. Chris Noth's return to TV

We just love him on The Good Wife. He's so damn good. And beautiful. And the role of the slutty politician really suits him.

burnsdg, I agree, The Daily Show is nothing more than simple liberal dribble.

I am very puzzled by number 71. Chris Noth's _return_ to TV??? He was on Criminal Intent as recently as August 17, 2008. http://www.tv.com/law-and-order-criminal-intent/last-rites/episode/1219001/summary.html He has a nice new role, but one year away is hardly worthy of the term "return." 71 needs a different title.

TNT is this year's DirectTV and (somewhat CBS). Saving a ratings-challenged show is something that cable can do a great job. Move a show like Jericho to SyFy a few years ago & it would still be one the air. FNL's with their sweetheart deal with DirectTV/NBC. TNT saving Southland was cool -- but I wish they would save the really good shows.

Cute. I never thought "Sunny" would make the list, but the breakup was one incredible episode. Conan - nothing new about his being great. It's still a shame his satirical humor isn't more widely appreciated.

At least TNT saved something instead of nothing. It's a pity more good shows aren't saved every once in a while.

I guess, if you're so prejudiced to assume that a "thinking person" MUST be a Daily Show viewer...

I love Chris Noth. He's just a gorgeous man. I love him in Law & Order, the original reruns, as well as Criminal Intent. I love him in Sex and the City, and in anything he is in. I love him in the Good Wife too.

Grey's has really stepped up its game this season, after a horrible last season. And everything about True Blood has been amazing, but the Fellowship of the Sun was one of my favorite parts. They were the perfect blend of religious fanaticism and psychopathic witch (or should I say vampire) hunters.

True Blood is the Awesome!! The GA episode "Give Peace a Chance" was a great one! I saw my first episode of The Good Wife last night...it was ok. I like "happy endings", but it didn't grab me, so I don't know if I will be watching anymore.
