TV Land will kick off five-night special The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases Monday, Dec. 11 from 10 p.m.-11 p.m. (EST/PST), running through Friday, Dec. 15.
The weeklong countdown show will take viewers from No. 100 to No. 1 and feature original talent interviews and archival clips of those who made the quotes or phrases famous, as well as those who have been influenced by them.
“We have found that television is such a huge part of Baby Boomers' DNA that it makes sense that so much of America's pop-culture jargon has come from TV," TV Land president Larry W. Jones said in a prepared statement. "We are sure that The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catchphrases will strike a chord with the TV generation and will illustrate the influence the medium has had on pop culture.”
