New President


As the US presidential race has been hotting up in real life, the Radio Times has conducted a poll to see which US television character readers would like to see as US president.Around 2,000 people took part in the survey which decided that rather than having an incompetent in charge of the USA, they would like Homer Simpson to take the role. In second place came West Wing’s fictional president, Josiah Bartlett.

Homer’s manifesto in the Radio Times, written by The Simpsons scriptwriters ran: “I promise there will be fewer nuclear disasters with me as your mayor than with me as your nuclear safety inspector.”

The top ten in full:

1 – Homer Simpson (The Simpsons) (John says “hes got my vote”
2 – Josiah Bartlet (The West Wing)
3 – Dr Frasier Crane (Frasier)
4 – Sgt Bilko (The Phil Silvers Show)
5 – Gil Grissom (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation)
6 – Jack Bauer (24)
