    Barbara Walters drives me insane. I usually put her and larry king in the worst interviewer catagory. She always seems so oldskool, and way behind the times….I really just can not stand to watch her…plase retire.

    Probably someone Twilight related. Stephanie Meyer? Her books did outsell Harry Potter.

    Obama or Sarah Palin maybe? But I don’t think it is Angie or Brad or Meyer or Spears.

    I agree with most of you with WTF is Will, Cruise, Miley and Beatie doing on the list. For what?

    Meyer Outselling Harry in what universe do you live in? please..

    adam Says:

    There’s two possible names: Obama or Spears. If she wants to do it in the obvious and conservative way she will choose Obama, but if she wants to make some buzz around she will choose Britney… But, why is not Beyoncé in that list? she can be instead of the pregnat man, what is fascinated thing about him?

    Based on the other 9, who cares about #1?

    Lori Says:

    Who ever picks these lists needs to realize these are the same people she interviews every year. What about the Jonas Brothers, the cast of High School Musical, the cast of Twilight. I can think of alot of people who had a huge year. The only person I would keep on this list is Michael Phelps. Babs you are so old!

    Yeahhhhh Says:

    Miley desrves to be on there she has done A LOT this year and she has gone through a lot of crap and is STILL disney’s # 1. You can hate her all you want but don’t lie to yourself. Anw what I don’t understand is the pregnant man, no offense but “he” still has a ******! Also I think #1 is gonnna be Obama NOT Britney I mean what has she done this year? She didn’t even make a proper comeback, sorry but lipsynching on a show that is supposed to be live does not count as a comeback!
