US magazine readers rate Arsenic best, Roseanne worst
June 7, 1990

NEW YORK (AP) — Move over, Johnny and Dave. Arsenio is the fairest in late-night TV talk show land these days. At least 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.

Just last year, they chose Roseanne Barr as the best TV actress, but this year she was named worst TV actress. She also was named “most overexposed actress” and her show, “Roseanne,” was “the worst TV series ”

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.
