Nov 13, 2006  •  Post A Comment

TelevisionWeek is trawling video-sharing Web sites to find the hottest clips spreading on the Internet.

The setup: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and country singer Faith Hill is here to prove it. This little gem, boosted from television coverage of the “The 40th Annual Country Music Association Awards,” shows the contenders for Female Vocalist of the Year in split-screen, waiting for the envelope to be opened. When Carrie Underwood gets the prize, Ms. Hill pulls one of the all-time great moments of artistic honesty, mouthing something other than “I’m so happy for you!” She later said she was joking. Uh-huh …

The source: CBS’s broadcast of the awards show.

The hits: The clip was played at least 6 million times on YouTube in the first two days after the telecast.
