Lucy Ricardo Voted "Greatest TV Character of All Time"

I Love Lucy's Lucy Ricardo has been voted "Greatest TV Character of All Time" thanks to a poll conducted by The News & Observer. Staff writer, Matt Ehlers, stated:

Ricardo, whose "I Love Lucy" is one of the most enduring shows in the history of the medium, clobbered Jack Bauer of "24" in the championship round of our bracket-style competition.

Although the outcome was perhaps unsurprising, the margin certainly was. Of the more than 900 votes included in our final tally, Ricardo was picked as the winner on 273 of them. Barney Fife, the home-state folk hero who finished as champion on the second-most brackets, managed only 99.
