TV's Top 100 Episodes of All Time: #60-41
June 15, 2009 04:53 PM EST

From I Love Lucy to Lost and everything in between, we're counting down TV's finest. Check out today's showcase of #60-41. Where does your favorite rank?

60. THE BIG BANG THEORY
“The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis” 12/15/2008

Sheldon’s obsession with Christmas etiquette was the comedic gift that kept on giving.

59. ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS
“Lamb to the Slaughter” 4/13/1958

Barbara Bel Geddes bludgeons her unfaithful hubby with a frozen leg of lamb, then feeds the evidence to the cops. Savory!

58. THE ODD COUPLE
“Password” 12/1/1972

Oscar and Felix partner up for the famed TV game show, and the password is riotous.

57. HILL ST. BLUES
“Freedom’s Last Stand” 1/28/1982

Superhero Captain Freedom was a laughable character. Until we said a tearful goodbye.

56. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER
“Slap Bet” 11/20/2006

The Three Stooges–worthy slapstick on display here is legen...wait for it...dary!

55. DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
"One Wonderful Day" 5/22/2005

The 2005 season finale gave viewers everything they wanted—and a new mystery, to boot. Mary Alice’s suicide was explained, and another death—the shocking murder of Bree’s husband, Rex—set the stage for Season 2. “It was really one massive punch after another after a yearlong setup,” says creator Marc Cherry. And keeping the story lines hush-hush wasn’t a problem. “Rex’s death wasn’t in the script,” Cherry says. “We put it in the episode through postproduction.”

54. TWIN PEAKS
“Pilot” 4/8/1990

So Lost is weird? This show starred a corpse.

53. THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW
“Went With the Wind” 11/13/1976

It’s amazing what a pair of curtains and perfect comic timing can do.

52. DAMAGES
“Because I Know Patty” 10/23/2007

Frobisher’s run-in with a trigger-happy ex-employee was almost as shocking as Patty’s hand in protégé Ellen’s attempted murder. Almost.

51. TAXI
“Reverend Jim: A Space Odyssey” 9/25/1979

What does a yellow light mean? That we’ll always brake for Reverend Jim’s divinely funny driver’s test.
