Happy New Year’s Eve, dear readers!! As 2012 draws to a close, it’s time to look back and reflect on the year that was. Television in 2012 was chock full of feels…angry ones, hilarious ones, swoon worthy ones, triumphant ones and (sometimes literally if you are part of a show produced by Steven Moffat) jump off the roof of a building ones. I’ve picked out my top 12 TV moments of 2012 because I refuse to be limited to only ten. I refuse to rank them though. That’s like ranking my friends. And I don’t do that. 😉
1) Kristen Wiig says goodbye – Saturday Night Live
We all knew it was coming after Bridesmaids was a massive hit that resulted in an Original Screenplay Oscar Nomination for Kristin Wiig. We knew all season that this would be her last on SNL, even if she never came out and said it explicitly. Kristen left an indelible mark on SNL and this was a lovely and touching send-off for her.
2) McKayla Maroney’s Near Perfect Vault – Summer Olympics
I still don’t see how this didn’t get a perfect score
3) Kristin Bell Loves Sloths – The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Proving that celebrities can have fangirl meltdowns too…
This may or may not have been how I reacted (internally, obviously) the first time I met Joel McHale this year.
