    Just an idea of some of the longshots?? Hugh Jackman, Madonna , David Beckam, Jonas Brothers, Beyonce, Anderson Cooper, Heidi Klum, Ellen Degeneres, Oprah, Tiger Woods (is facinating to me), and even Tyra Banks had a pretty good year too.

    Then there all the people we lost such this year, Heath Ledger, Michael Crichton, Charlton Heston, Tim Russert, and Paul Newman just to name a few.

    leggs Says:

    I don’t know why Angelina Jolie didn’t make the list….she’s a humanitarian, wonderful mother and actress and also UN Ambassador. Why is Tom ” has been” Cruise on the list? All he does is preach his scientology and buy ugly clothes for Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise who have the same mentality.

    Our U.S. troops should be no.1

    WTF!! This list is a joke! What did the psycho midget (TC) do that was so facinating this year?! Babs got an interview with him about his Nazi movie and she decides to include him? She’s gone senile. It’s obvious that Mr. and/or Mrs. Obama will be #1 and she’ll just show more clips from her interview last week.

    Andy Says:

    i would say obama was the obvious choice too if she didn’t just do an interview with him so i’d half to say britney spears

    I can’t believe someone would actually think Suri Cruise should be on the list. Medication time.

    what a crappy list. rush limbaugh? i’m not sure being a bigot qualifies you as fascinating. tom cruise? he hasn’t been interesting since he got done jumping on oprah’s couch. will smith? yeah um i like him, but he’s hardly fascinating. sarah palin? being an idiot that got picked as a token candidate doesn’t make you fascinating, the only interesting thing about her is the fact that people aren’t completely outraged that she came as close as she did to getting elected to national office. the “pregnant man?” aside from the fact that having female parts and getting pregnant isn’t amazing, he’s just become a media *****.
    barbara walters becomes more irrelevant every day and this list is just further proof. who should be number one? i’d go with michelle obama i guess, her husband is too obvious a choice & she seems like the more interesting of the pair. stephen colbert would be a good choice too, his brief presidential campaign was pretty fascinating.

    Barack Obama’s my guess, too.

    obama, clearly

    jamie Says:

    Okay. Will Smith & Tom Cruise are just lame. I think the list should be… 10. sara palin 9. tina fay 8. taylor swift 7. miley cyrus. 6. hugh hefner 5. ? 4. ? 3.patrick demsey 2. britney spears 1. nicole richie

    Tony Says:

    This is Barbara Walters. If you watch “The View,” which I do, it’s most likely going to be Barack Obama.

    WTF Miley Cyrus..please lord let her extended 15 minutes of fame be over soon. She is as annoying as TC. I think Babs got confused and this list is the worlds most annoying people of 2008.

    Tom must have paid bought Walters a house or something to get on the list.. cut him and put in Robert Downey JR. Keep Tina, Micheal and Will and then add Stephanie Meyer, Brad and Angelina (joint interview..they count as one Brangelina), Don Cheadle, Hilary Clinton, Sarah Palin(if you must), and then whatever number one she wants…Obama

    **** OBAMA.

    Maybe he will get it and explain to everyone what a terrorist he really is.

    Hey Blonde, over here! Says:

    TOM CRUISE?!? Why? What exactly has he done in the last year that’s interesting? I’m not a fan of Miley, but she is way more interesting. I think britney should be on the list- she has had a hell of a year and comeback.

    Sour grapes, jenn # 73? Get over it, already.
