Harris Interactive recently released the results of if its Harris Poll, aimed at measuring who America’s favorite television personality is. Altogether, 2,311 adults (aged 18 and older) across various ages, educations, regions, and gender were polled in order to get a sense of America’s favorite television personality overall as well as the favorites among specific groups of people. According to Harris Interactive, here are America’s eight favorite television personalities.

8. Oprah Winfrey

When it comes to public opinion, Oprah Winfrey’s popularity as a television personality has been remarkably consistent over the years. In the past ten years alone, Winfrey has polled as the overall favorite in Harris Interactive’s polls five different times, along with twice coming in at number two. But the past several years have also shown a notable downturn in popularity. After polling at number seven on the list in 2011 — a fall from number two the year before — she fell again to number eight in 2012 where she polled once more in 2013. Dating back to 1993, Winfrey had only slipped out of the top three once before 2011, falling to number four in 2008, and it looks like Winfrey might finally be losing steam with viewers.
