Just as TV can exceed our expectations by, say, taking what felt like the umpteenth couples comedy and parlaying it into wonderful, weekly Happy Endings, gripping us tight with Homeland drama or reviving the primetime sudser with a delicious serving of Revenge, small screen fare can also let us down.

With 2011 drawing to a close, we reflected on 20 instances over the past year when, for one reason or another, the TV gods didn’t quite smile on us. VIEW SLIDESHOW

CHUCK -- "Chuck vs. the Grinch" Episode 507 -- Pictured:  -- Photo by: Mike Ansell/NBC

The first time I cued up this Friday’s episode of Chuck (NBC, 8/7c),  I admittedly shrugged — after all, it was another instance of a bad guy laying siege to Castle. Been there, done that. But then something happened: The episode started to knock my socks off, again and again, ultimately leaving me with the biggest grin and, yes, damp eyes.

Question: Got any Grey’s Anatomy spoilers? It has been a while. —Sami
Ausiello: It’s been way too long, Sami. Way. Too. Long. Here’s your long overdue scoopage: Little Sofia threatens to derail Callie’s big Valentine’s Day surprise for Arizona on Feb. 9, but it’s not the tyke’s fault; it’s Mark’s. Callie asks him to look after their daughter but he’s got plans of his own, so she tries to pawn babysitting duties off on the other docs. I’m guessing it all works out because the episode ends with Callie escorting a blindfolded Arizona to [spoiler].

Question: All I want for Christmas is a good Meredith and Derek scoop. You got any? —Jessica

Question: You mentioned a while back that the upcoming Glee episode titled “The Proposal” would be a big one for Will and Emma. Any particular reason why? —Radames
Ausiello: Um, because he proposes to her in it? [Cue eye roll, heavy sigh and finger gun to head.] And it’s not just any proposal. According to the question-popper himself, Matthew Morrison, “It’s the most spectacular proposal I’ve ever seen.” Care to elaborate, MM? “All I can say is it’s wet.
