Perhaps one of the most iconic couples on TV, first place goes to Ross and Rachel in Friends. After trying it on but initially breaking up, the romantic reunited kiss after a prom video showing Ross’s everlasting love for Rachel has been viewed over 4 million times on YouTube (4,387,342). Turns out he really was her lobster! 

In second place is the crescendo of Nick and Jess’s dance of love in New Girl. Fans may have rooted for the couple from the get-go, but after a night of drunken games, the usually joking Nick grabs Jess off guard and shows her how he really feels with a seriously steamy kiss. The scene earned a massive 2,046,201 views.

Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago claim third place. Whilst sparks were seen here and there in the lighthearted cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the evidence room kiss took us all by a happy surprise, earning an impressive 1,672,211 views and proving the couple as one of our favourites.

Whilst just friends at first, we always knew Jim and Pam in The Office (US) would get together. But not before a heartbreaking admission of love from Jim who was rejected by Pam. His honest and emotional confession followed by a kiss in the office has been viewed 1,330,653 times and places them in fourth. Many of us still haven’t recovered emotionally from this scene.

At the other end of the table is Booth and Brennan from Bones. Whilst in 20th place, their passionate kiss in the rain which was cut short by a waiting taxi makes it all the more steamy and earned them a still respectable 297,222 YouTube views to date.
