LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Diminutive dynamo Rachael Ray is the most likeable U.S. television host, a new survey says.
The brassy Food Network star and host of a new TV talk show scored the highest "Q" score in a survey of 1,800 people conducted by syndication company King World.
Q scores are basically a measure of a television star's appeal or likability to the audience. While largely subjective, the Q score is closely followed by advertisers as an indication of how popular a program will be.
King World, which happens to produce Ray's new talk show, noted that the premier last month drew the highest ratings since the first "Dr. Phil" in 2002.
