Who Are Your Favorite TV Talk Show Hosts?
They keep us company in hotel rooms during business trips. They keep us sane and laughing during a long election year. They keep a million DVR boxes working overtime. I'm talking about our nation's TV talk show hosts. From the early days when Johnny Carson ruled the airwaves to current favorites and relative newcomers like Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, they are among the funniest and most thoughtful television celebrities. Best of all, they get OTHER famous folks to say wonderfully tweetable things.
A few talk hosts have retired recently, including one of the most accomplished – Oprah – who has moved on to new challenges beyond the daily talk show grind. This poll focuses on those that are still out there riding the air waves and fighting for ratings. Tell us who you like best this week on the poll. If we've forgotten to include your favorites (mea culpa!) then please write them in as a comment or in the "other" box.
