Most memorable TV moments of 2012

Slide 1 of 21

A look at what stood out on the small screenBy Deanna BarnertSpecial to MSN TVIt's hard to believe we're closing the book on another year of TV, but, boy, has it been a good one! The 2012 television landscape brought monster success, Olympic fever, Lindsay Lohan drama, "Honey Boo Boo" controversy, "Jersey Shore" spawn and a Beatles coup. TV fans were also hit by an onslaught of rock star panelists, gay-friendly programming, new talk shows and election mayhem. While "Homeland," "Downton Abbey" and "The Walking Dead" ruled the drama scene, it was another banner year for women in comedy. Across the board, it was a year of big wins, big losses and big goodbyes -- not to mention a few jaw-dropping moments -- but it bears mention that moments alone do not make a network. AMC scored the most shining moments in this roundup, and MSN TV can agree the cable network is on a good path. In contrast, while this roundup reflects several #NBCFail moments, the struggling network managed to capture the coveted 18-to-49-year-old prime-time audience this fall, winning that demo for the first month of the 2012-13 TV season for the first time since 2002.Bing: More about 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' | 'Jersey Shore'What were your favorite TV moments of the year? Share on Facebook and Twitter(AP)
