This year has been a momentous one for television. We mourned the end of "Game of Thrones," we were captivated by Sean Spicer's performance on "Dancing With the Stars," and we continued to be wowed by old favorites like "NCIS." In less than a month, the year will come to a close and a new one with equally exciting television moments will begin. With this in mind, we decided to look back on 2019 and its seven most watched TV episodes, as outlined by Best Life.

7. "America's Got Talent": "Live Results Finale"

Date: Sept. 18

Viewers: 10.21 million

Millions sat glued to their chairs during the nail-biting season 14 finale, which saw Kodi Lee take first prize for his rendition of Calum Scott's "You Are the Reason."

6. "The Voice": "Blind Auditions, Part 3"

Date: March 4

Viewers: 10.97 million

What stood out for this particular episode was that all four coaches — John Legend, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Kelly Clarkson — were contending for participants Dexter Roberts and Jej Vinson.

5. "The Masked Singer": "Season Finale: The Final Mask Is Lifted"

Date: Feb. 27

Viewers: 11.47 million

"The Masked Singer" may have only premiered at the start of the year, but it was an immediate hit that sucked in millions of viewers. They couldn't get enough of the show, so when the finale aired, everyone tuned in to see the unmasking of the Peacock, the Bee, and the Monster (Donny Osmond, Gladys Knight, and T-Pain).

4. "NCIS": "Out of the Darkness"

Date: Sept. 24

Viewers: 12.57 million

The highly anticipated premiere of season 17 promised to answer many questions left hanging from the previous seasons.

3. "Game of Thrones": "The Iron Throne"

Date: May 16

Viewers: 13.1 million

It comes as a bit of a surprise that the grand finale of "Game of Thrones" was only the third most watched TV episode of 2019, but it still drew millions of viewers who were curious to see how the HBO epic ended.

2. "Young Sheldon": "A Swedish Science Thing and the Equation for Toast"

Date: May 16

Viewers: 13.6 million

It seemed somewhat apt that Season 2 of "Young Sheldon" ended on a bittersweet note. Sheldon organized a party that no one attends, while Professor Sturgis faced his own struggles.

1. "The Big Bang Theory": "The Stockholm Syndrome"

Date: May 16

Viewers: 18.52 million

After 12 seasons, "The Big Bang Theory" finally came to an end and millions of heartbroken fans tuned in to see how the season finale would wrap up — with a trip to Stockholm for the Nobel Prize in Physics.
