The "Seinfeld" crew had three comedy catchphrases in the top 50.Courtesy photo By Gina [email protected] 26, 2009 10:42 PMThe Paley Center and NBC counted down �TV�s 50 Funniest Phrases� in a two-hour special Tuesday night.

It was hosted by Jane Krakowski of �30 Rock� and was predictably heavy on �Saturday Night Live� catchphrases.But it was �Seinfeld�s� �Yada, yada, yada� that took No.

1, over �D�oh� from �The Simpsons� and �How you doin�� from �Friends.�I take issue with �Burn� from �That �70s Show� making the top 10 (at 6), over both �Oh my god! They killed Kenny� from �South Park� and �Lucy, you�ve got some splainin� to do� from �I Love Lucy.� So what if Ricky never quite used those words, it�s a much better known catchphrase than �Burn.� I also take issue with �It�s going to be legendary� from "How I Met Your Mother" taking No.

11, beating everything from �Well isn�t that special� from SNL to �Eat my shorts� from �Simpsons� to �One of these days, pow, right in the kisser� from �The Honeymooners.� (Absent for some odd reason: "Dy-no-mite" from "Good Times.")�Hated it� is right! �I�ve made a huge mistake� for real.

(And if you are going to pick a quote from �Arrested Development� � and I�m so glad you did � couldn�t you also pick �Her?�) They did a few side genres beyond comedy � reality, action adventure, sci-fi and game shows � but what about dramas? Fuhgedaboudit! I wanted to see �Everybody lies� from �House� at the very least, but they completely blew off the genre.
