the-contest
TV Guide ranks TV’s Top 100 Episodes of All Time in its latest issue. No. 1? Seinfeld’s “The Contest.” Worthy choice, but isn’t it interesting that when TV Guide compiled the same list in 1997, it honored two Seinfeld episodes — “The Boyfriend” at No. 4 and “Parking Garage” at No. 33. The masterful Master of My Domain classic is nowhere to be found… a huge snub many critics pointed out.

The rest of the top 10:
2. The Sopranos (“College,” 1999)
3. The Mary Tyler Moore Show (“Chuckles Bites The Dust,” 1975) No. 1 on 1997 List
4. I Love Lucy (“Lucy Does A TV Commercial,” 1952)
5. Lost (“Pilot,” 2004)
6. ER (“Love’s Labor Lost,” 1995)
7. The Honeymooners (“Better Living Through TV,” 1955)
8. Mad Men (“Nixon Vs. Kennedy,: 2007)
9. All In The Family (“Cousin Maude’s Visit,” 1971)
10. 24 (Season 1: 11 p.m.-12 a.m.,” 2002

Biggest drop” The Odd Couple (“Password”) went from No. 5 to No. 58.
