What were the best TV shows of 2012?
Here are the first five in our countdown.
25. "Jill Zarin," Watch What Happens Live
Watch What Happens: Live gets serious when Andy Cohen welcomes fired Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin to the clubhouse for what has been dubbed the reality TV version of Frost/Nixon (seriously). The awkwardly heated Q&A culminates with Jill's confession that she played up an argument with ex-BFF Bethenny Frankel, which caused the dissolution of their friendship. But Jill isn't all about repentance. Still bitter over her axing, she snips, "You can't replace me, Andy."
24. "Flight," Grey's Anatomy
Just when you think Shonda Rhimes can't up the shocking-finale ante anymore, she leaves Meredith, Derek, Cristina, Arizona, Lexie and Mark stranded on a mountainside after a plane crash. Their traumatizing ordeal is all the more devastating as the docs hopelessly stand by as Lexie, crushed by a section of the aircraft, dies. And that's just the beginning. The docs are not rescued by the end of the episode. (RIP, Lexie, Mark and Arizona's leg).
