Holiday Fun Time: 10 best talk show appearances of the decade

Movieline has made its choices for the top 10 talk show moments of the past decade, including expected faves like Joaquin Phoenix and post-prison Paris Hilton on "Letterman," and a few surprises (who knew the critically reviled Jay Leno would be responsible for three of the top clips?).

I would have to agree with the choice of Warren Zevon's final "Letterman" appearance -- that was truly an unforgettable show -- but in terms of moments that didn't make the list, I'd say Jimmy Kimmel and ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman produced a best-of-the-decade-worthy bit with "I'm F*@#ing Matt Damon," part of the ABC host's ongoing feud with the "Bourne" star. You know you wanna watch it again:

Do you have a favorite talk show moment from the past decade? Nominate it in the comments.

    I dooo, but it says video unavailable.

    Anyways, not much sticked around in my mind. I'd say Tutu's interview on Late Late Show was a big enough event to possibly be on that list.

    You can try watching the Matt Damon video on YouTube and see if that works... though the embedded one does play for me.

    Yeah, no. Doesn't even say the usual country restriction stuff, just "This video is not available". The other one (not-so-good-quality-with-no-audience) worked, so it's all good.

    Aforementioned Desmond Tutu interview is here: click

    I'll second the Bishop Tutu interview - one of my favorite interviews ever.

    This list contains one major flaw-Where was Letterman's post 9/11 speech?!

    In "Holiday Fun Time: 10 best talk show moments of the decade", probably. Here they counted down guests.
