Have you seen TV Land and Entertainment Weekly’s list of the Greatest TV Icons?
Johnny Carson is No. 1, followed by Lucille Ball, Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby and Walter Cronkite. Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Jerry Seinfeld, Homer Simpson and Dick Clark complete the Top 10.
You can argue Lucy should be No. 1 but Johnny’s just as deserving. Oprah is too high, Mary Tyler Moore is too low. Homer Simpson? Please. Biggest omission is Bob Hope (he’s No. 51). And where’s Steve Allen, Sid Caesar, Walt Disney? Not even on the list. Yet Jimmy Smits and Heather Locklear are icons?
