Comcast's failed $45 billion deal for Time Warner Cable is a high-profile example of a failed deal, but it doesn't crack the list of the 10 largest.

It's not even the biggest scuttled takeover attempt of a company named Time Warner. That distinction belongs to an unsolicited, $79.6 billion bid for Time Warner Inc. made by Rupert Murdoch's 21st Century Fox, according to financial data provider Dealogic.

Time Warner Inc. spun off Time Warner Cable Inc. in 2009.
