Ellen DeGeneres Named Favorite TV Personality
Ellen DeGeneres is your favorite TV personality, that is according to a new Harris Interactive poll. The 2014 Oscar host landed in the #1 spot on the survey as America’s favorite TV personality, followed by “NCIS” star Mark Harmon as this year’s runner-up and “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart rounding out the top three.
The rest of the top 10 includes “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons, “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno, “Colbert Report” host Stephen Colbert, “Blue Bloods” star Tom Selleck, Oprah Winfrey, “Crazy Ones” star Robin Williams and daytime talk host Steve Harvey.
So what makes Ellen the fan-favorite TV personality? Maybe it has something to do with things like getting Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep to read various things as different characters, including an oatmeal recipe in a sexy voice and a traffic report as a woman in labor.
Listen to the clip below to hear Meryl act these funny readings out on The Ellen Show.
