Oprah Winfrey is the No. 1 personality on television, up three places from where she was last year, according to the Harris Poll, conducted by Harris Interactive.
New to the annual top 10 list and landing right behind Oprah was Fox News talker Glenn Beck, with NBC’s Jay Leno coming in third. In a fourth place tie were Hugh Laurie, the star of Fox’s "House," and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, soon to be a judge on Fox’s "American Idol."
The rest of the top 10 includes "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart at No. 6; CBS’ stars of "Two and a Half Men" and "NCIS" respectively, Charlie Sheen (No. 7) and Mark Harmon (No. 8). CBS’ late night host David Letterman was No. 9, and rounding out the list was Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, 10th on the roster.
