For this one-of-a-kind celebration, 20 of the most memorable comedy moments and 20 of the most memorable dramatic moments in television history were chosen by Ken Ehrlich Productions (producers of this year's Emmy Awards), Television Academy leadership and a select group of the nation's top television journalists.

It's a perfect opportunity both to celebrate the history of television and at the same time to introduce new generations to some of the medium's most important events," said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of "The 60th Annual Primetime Emmy� Awards."

From The Beatles' first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" to the entire Cosby family singing a Ray Charles song, from hearing the �Goodnights' on "The Waltons" to the disappearance of the island on "Lost," fans will be able to narrow 40 of "Television's Most Memorable Moments" down to just two.
