Guess the catchphrase...show your smugness to your coworkersWhile many think television was built on a combination of electronics and imagination, I personally feel that a good portion of it has been constructed on a fine bed of catchphrases. From the earliest mention of "How sweet it is!" by Jackie Gleason to "That's what she said" from The Office, there probably hasn't been a year that a catchphrase hasn't graced the lips of the international viewing populace.

I'm sure many of you know those catchphrases well. But, do you know when they were first used, or by whom? If you do, then AOL Television's latest trivia quiz will be right up your alley.

TV Land, catchphrases and a complaint

johnny carsonIn case you missed Julia's earlier post about it, TV Land's countdown of the one hundred greatest quotes and catchphrases kicks off a five-night run this evening at 10 pm (it will also air at 10 pm the following nights).

I like TV Land, I really do, and this is just another example of the network's dedication to light-hearted entertainment that's not meant to be analyzed too deeply. It's easy to find fault with the list and notice certain omissions, but what the heck, it's only television.

100 Greatest TV Quotes and Catchphrases

TVLandBeginning on December 11th, TV Land will host a week-long tribute to over sixty years of television's greatest "quotes and catchphrases." That's five nights of talking head, clip show goodness covering cartoons, news programs, game shows, long-running series, commercials and historic live events.

If you want a sneak peak, you can look at the entire list online. The list is pretty wide-ranging and up-to-date. A few that made the grade - Jon Stewart's "Here it is, your moment of Zen." The Walton's "Good night, John Boy." The A-Team's "I love it when a plan comes together." Larry Sanders' "Hey now!" Not all the choices make sense. Paris Hilton's "that's hot" may not deserve a place on the same list as Edward R. Murrow's "good night, and good luck," but what are you gonna do? The American pop culture vernacular is a mysterious beast.

homer simpson dohOriginally I was going to list the best catchphrases in general, not limiting my choices to single words. But, as we only list five in our The Five posts, I knew early on that it would be a near impossible task to list only five favorites. So, here we have it, the five best single-word catchphrases of popular TV characters.

1. "Aeyyy!" OK, so technically this isn't a "word," but you can't deny the popularity of the trademark call of coolness from the one and only Fonz of Happy Days.
