You're also quoting yourself, OLDSKOOL138, I didn't say that about JOHNNY CARSON...

Gorgeous George. How many people back in the day bought TVs just to watch his pro wrestling antics. Him and the likes of the Amazing Rocca and Buddy Rogers.

I have not read the list, but I can imagine I'd find some I like, some head scratchers and some "WHY OH WHY didn't they include..." on there.

I've come to the conclusion that these lists are flawed in their basic premise.  To pick a Top 50 (or whatever) is ludicrous.  Art Carney's genius is in no way, shape or form diminished by Johnny Carson's.  To me, it's about not "who the best."  This statement is probably especially true when the list is as broad as "television."

Sorry for the tirade, but I've just grown weary with the competitive culture that says talented person X is better than talented person Y.  I've come to believe that X and Y can both be pretty darn good, and I really don't have to choose between them.

A slightly off topic pet peeve: I hate this new style of Internet "best of" list where they won't let you see the whole list at a glance, but make you click through every single entry.  Clicking my mouse 50 times is too much effort to invest to see who Entertainment Weekly thinks is the top TV icon of all time.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
