The Los Angeles Times has a list of all our favorite TV characters who died this year. We'll miss ya' Ida Blankenship, you truly were an astronaut. It also includes Jin, Sun, and Sayid from "Lost," but technically weren't they all dead at the end? And no love for Jack? Anyway, for best results read while listening to Jim Carrol's "People Who Died."

The Times also has a slightly more annoying list of TV catch phases from 2010, although I have to admit "prostitution whore" will now be part of my casual lexicon. Also, as much as I'm exasperated by the cast of "Jersey Shore," the phrase, "T-shirt tiiiime" is oddly endearing.
