Forbes 2013 List Of The Most Influential Celebrities


Oprah Winfrey Tops Forbes 2013 List Of The Most Influential Celebrities. It looks like giving up her syndicated talk show wasn’t such a big deal after all. Almost two years after she ended the program, Oprah Winfrey is still the most influential celebrity in America.

According to E-Poll Research, 48% of people surveyed rate Winfrey as influential. That’s down only one point from last year when she also topped the list of Most Influential Celebrities. Ratings at Oprah’s OWN network are starting to creep up thanks to big “get” interviews like her recent special in which she grilled Lance Armstrong about his drug use. The two-part show drew 28 million viewers around the world. Prime-time ratings at the network are up 17% already this year, according to Nielsen.
