Which Newser Debuted at #2 on the Poll of ‘Favorite’ TV Personalities?

glennbeckoreilly_1-25.jpgBoth Fox News’ Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly made the top ten in a Harris Interactive poll that asked 2,276 adults in early December, “Who is your favorite TV personality?”

Beck was number 2 in his debut appearance on the list, behind TV legend Oprah and ahead of comedian Jay Leno. Beck was the #1 favorite among 64+ adults, Republicans, Independents, Conservatives, and Midwesterners. Oprah was #1 among Democrats and Jon Stewart was #1 among Liberals.

O’Reilly returned to the list at the #10 spot after being absent the year prior. He’d been in the top 10 for the seven consecutive years previous.
