    January 3 is recognized as Humiliation Day. It's a lesser-known random holiday, but it's as good a time as any to recall the most squirm-inducing moments that TV shows and movies have forced us to sit through. While we wouldn't wish these situations on anyone in real life, they sure were good for a quality cringe and an uncontrollable blush when we saw them on-screen.
