Mark Harmon, known for his role as Leroy Jethro Gibbs on the hit CBS show NCIS, is also a very well liked celebrity. He came in second only to Ellen DeGeneres in a recent poll of America’s favorite actors and TV personalities. The Harris Poll released the results on Friday. Harmon visited Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Thursday and thanked him for his many years of late night laughs. Both Leno and Harmon teased each other, producing film clips of each men in guest roles on Laverne & Shirley. Watching the two men chat and reminisce made it quite easy to see how Mark Harmon made it to the number two spot on the Harris Poll list.

Interestingly enough, Jay Leno made the list as well–coming in at the number five spot. It certainly appears like the list is comprised of people that viewers can relate to and those who make a real effort to relate to the viewers. People like Mark Harmon, Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno seem approachable. They don’t seem like their significant fame has gone to their heads. There is a very “real” quality about each one of them. It can’t hurt, however, that Harmon is drop dead gorgeous. Sorry, but he’s not available, ladies. He has, for more than 25 years now, been happily married to actress Pam Dawber–star of the hit 1980s TV show Mork & Mindy.

So who else made this list of most liked actors and TV personalities? With Ellen DeGeneres at the top, followed by Mark Harmon, the third person on the list is Jon Stewart. Fourth place goes to The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, followed, of course, by Jay Leno. Numbers six through ten are Stephen Colbert, Tom Selleck, Oprah Winfrey, Robin Williams and Steve Harvey, respectively. Ellen DeGeneres has made the list since her talk show began back in 2003.

Congratulations to Mark Harmon on being so well liked. Be sure to tune in to see him in full Gibbs action on NCIS on Tuesday evenings.

Top Rated White Papers and Resources

    The amazing thing is that Jay Leno made the list…
    Because Jay Leno has a fake personality masking something evil…
    Just shows you how easily people are fooled…

    Ellen Degeneras and Mark Harmon do seem nice and real.

    • Me

      And Oprah won’t like you unless you’re black

      • jensee

        Wrong! Oprah won’t like you unless you are WHITE…OR…you are a WEALTHY black person!

      • Tina A Brown

        You….obviously don’t read and you must be prejudice to make an asinine statement like that!!! js

    • Mike

      Andy, your an Idiot

    • Andy’s an Idiot

      Yes, Andy IS an idiot.

  • Boon

    “…six through then”? Really? Then?! It’s a number I never learned unless my reading comprehension has diminished…

  • Who are they kidding?

    I hate all those cop shows. They are nothing like real life. In real life, the cops are not the heroes. You are better off avoiding them entirely.

    • Solari

      WOW remind me not to stand next to you while a crime is being committed!!

    • Steve

      The best cop show I’ve seen is 1) Wallander in Swedish and 2) Wallander in English.

  • gkuhn

    I couldn’t agree more. I have watched him and liked him for decades. People, it is a show. I’m sure he would be the first one to say it isn’t real but his characters and what I have seen of him in other circumstances shows him to be a really nice guy who doesn’t take himself or his fame too seriously. I like celebrities like that.

  • Harmon-izer

    I TOTALLY love Mark Harmon (as well as the entire NCIS cast…especially *the one and only* Ziva David), but the question begs to be asked…

    If Mark Harmon is so well liked, second only to Ellen Degeneres, then why, OH WHY, did he not win the “People’s Choice” award for Favorite Dramatic TV Actor hands down?? That is the one awards show that is by the people, of the people, and for the people, so what gives?

    Then there is the “Number #1 Show on Television” that has gotten snubbed year after year, but don’t even get me started….

    • anna

      Why didn’t MH win the People’s Choice and the show not win it’s award?

      Easy – any fan who has attempted to vote in People’s Choice knows that the poll is rigged by fans who are willing to either spend hours upon hours doing nothing but voting and/or set up bots to register hundreds or thousands of votes during a short time period.

      NCIS has millions of fans but having been on the FB page during the voting time, most of the fans who posted there said they only voted once and thought it should be kept ‘fair’. Then there’s the number of ‘fans’ of the show who actively campaigned against any NCIS nomination due to their own affection for their favorite character
