NEW YORK (AP) – Move over, Johnny and Dave. Arsenio is the fairest in late-night TV talk show land these days. At leastÂ that’s how US magazine readers see it. US magazine’s third annual readers’ poll, which surveyed 3,600 people, showed its readers to be a fickle lot.

On the other hand, they love “Roseanne” co-star John Goodman, although not his fashion sense. He was named “best TV actor” and “worst dressed actor” by readers responding to a ballot published in the March 5 issue.
