Oprah, Glenn Beck are America’s Favorite TV Personalities
The veteran talk show host and the news commentator top this year’s Harris Poll.
She may have been trailing Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno last year, but Oprah Winfrey is back on top as America’s favorite TV personality, according to the latest Harris Poll.
The poll, which surveyed 2,276 adults online during a week in December, also found a somewhat surprising person for the number two spot: Glenn Beck.
Beck has only been on the air with his Fox News show, Glenn Beck, since last year. Before then, he was known for his nationally syndicated radio show where he enraged many and inspired some with his political observations. He brought these controversial opinions with him to his TV program, giving him very strong ratings and apparently, an edge over other TV personalities like Conan O’Brien and Jon Stewart.
We wonder if the poll results would have been different since the NBC Conan vs. Jay spectacle. Do you think Conan would rank higher now just because he was screwed by NBC? (NY Daily News)
