Bo and Hope weddingSoap opera weddings are often the culmination of years of dealing with heartache and conquering adversity. But just because the couple exchanges "I do's" doesn't mean it's happily ever after -- as Sonny and Brenda's upcoming wedding on 'General Hospital' is proving.

Many, but not all couples on soaps get hitched for the right reasons. Sometimes the bride or groom is blackmailing the other or someone just wants to land a rich spouse!

One thing's for sure -- soap weddings are always memorable. Here's a look back at 20 soap wedding ceremonies (or post-ceremony moments) that fans remember fondly. Is your favorite not on the list? Let us know!

Top 20 Magic/Supernatural Shows Of All Time

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 9th 2010 3:00PM
Mankind has always been fascinated by the things that we can't explain -- ghosts, vampires, magic, mystery -- and popular culture is saturated with TV shows and movies that play on that obsession.

From the campy, spellbinding classics of the '60s to the dark, spooky series that haunted the '90s, audiences have been fixated with the paranormal -- whether it's a butt-kicking blonde in killer heels, a couple of hunky demon-hunting brothers or a trio of sibling witches -- some of the most enduring shows in the history of television deal with the things that go bump in the night or the extraordinary powers we wish we could harness.

To further feed this dark, dangerous obsession with the extraordinary or otherworldly, TV Squad has compiled a list of our top 20 favorite TV shows dealing with magic and the world of the supernatural.

Jerry Springer
TV Guide voted it the "Worst TV Show Ever." The show's own tagline was once, "An hour of your life you'll never get back." Whatever description you want to slap on 'The Jerry Springer Show,' you can't deny that the guy, and the scummy, scummy show, has longevity. And, if we're all being honest, we have to admit we've chuckled at an episode or two.

Today's 'Springer Takes Times Square' installment (check local listings for time and channel) of the daytime series finds Jerry -- and a round-up of celebs that includes Kathy Griffin, Perez Hilton, Maury Povich, the women of 'The View' and Rachael Ray -- celebrating 20 years on the air ... 20 freakin' years.

'As the World Turns' Finale Tribute: The Soap Opera's Top 20 Moments

by Michael Maloney, posted Sep 15th 2010 3:00PM
As the World TurnsNarrowing down the thousands of memorable moments to a mere 20 from 54 years of 'As the World Turns' is no easy feat.

It's especially tough to do since actors on the show are still turning in powerhouse performances. (Note to Kathryn Hays: Your performance as Kim dealing with her son Chris' heart condition on Sept. 2 was Emmy-worthy. Consider submitting yourself next year.)

There were many shocking moments and storylines that didn't make the list: Hal and Barbara's love story, Jack accidentally killing Brad, Bob and Kim finding Sabrina, John and Lucinda in the hot tub, Shannon's "shrunken head," Tom and Margo battling Mr. Big, Tad Channing's murder ... well, you get the idea.

Read on for a list of 20 memorable favorite moments from the beloved CBS soap opera, which will exit the airwaves on Fri, Sept. 17.
