The poll, conducted each year, had Oprah regaining her first-place position after trailing talk-show hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno last year.
Beck, a nationally syndicated radio host, premiered his Fox News television show last year.
The highly charged political program has generated controversy and ratings during the first year of Barack Obama’s presidency.
The poll also found Conan O’Brien topping the list among 18- to 32-year-olds -- the so-called Echo Boomers.
Leno was the favorite among men, and Jon Stewart topped the list among liberals.
The poll was conducted Dec. 7-14, 2009, among 2,276 adults surveyed online.
