Turning Point (2008) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by the Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) promotion, which took place on November 9, 2008 at the TNA Impact! Zone in Orlando, Florida. It was the fourth event under the Turning Point chronology and first event under the name to take place in November. It was originally scheduled to take place in December, but TNA moved the event to November in late-2008, for an unknown reason. Eight professional wrestling matches, with three involving championships, were featured on the event's card.

The main event was a standard wrestling match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship between the champion, Cting, and the challenger, KJ Styles, in which Cting retained the championship. Another featured match was Kevin Nash versus Samoa Joe, which Nash won. Matt Borske defeated Marc in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. The TNA Legends Championship was defended for the first time, as Steve Britz, who was accompanied by Tia George, successfully defended the championship against Jared Hunt.

The professional wrestling section of the Canadian Online Explorer website rated the event a 7 out of 10, which was just above the 2007 event's rating of 6.5. In his review of the event, Phil Allely of The Sun felt the event was "a thoroughly enjoyable show".
