OJ Tops Osama in Nielson's Most Memorable TV Moments
The three most memorable TV moments of the last 50 years according to a research poll conducted by TV researcher Nielsen and Sony Electronics:
1. The 9/11 Attacks
2. Hurricane Catrina
3. The O.J. Simpson Verdict
The killing of Osama bin Laden was number 5, after the Challenger space shuttle disaster.
Princess Diana’s funeral, the Columbine HS shootings in Colorado, the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and the 2010 earthquake and tsunami in Japan also scored in the top 10. The sudden death of Whitney Houston made the cut, but the death of Michael Jackson did not.
Here's the top 20. [More...]
OJ really scored: The verdict was #3 and the car chase #6. (I think the car chase was more memorable than the verdict.)
The capture of Saddam Hussein was #12. I'm surprised the final assault on Waco didn't make the top 20. And that Casey Anthony's verdict and Prince William's wedding did.
What do you think should have been included in the top 20 but wasn't?
