Oprah is back on top. She has regained her position -- for whatever this might be worth -- as America's favorite TV personality.
In the annual Harris Poll, conducted in December with results released this week, Oprah returns to the No. 1 slot of favorite TV figure. She was at No. 4 last year.
She gets the bump after announcing the end of her daytime talk show next year, when she'll be moving her focus to her own cable network, which just revealed it's new tagline. (And did you hear: Martha Stewart announced today she's moving to cable, too!)
Debuting at No. 2 on the list is Fox News demagogue Glenn Beck.
Last year, Jay Leno was No. 1. This year, he's No. 3. That has little to do with the recent late-night melee, however; the poll was conducted Dec. 7-14, before the Jay vs. Conan debacle at NBC.
The rest of the list:
4. (tie) Ellen Degeneres
4. (tie) Dr. House (Hugh Laurie's character on "House")
6. "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart
7. Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men"
8. Mark Harmon on "NCIS"
9. David Letterman
10. Bill O'Reilly on Fox News
