Who is television’s Top Dog?


Top 10 lists can cover just about anything these days — best movie presidents, most influential men and Hollywood catchphrases are just some of the more unusual we’ve seen recently.

So it doesn’t seem fair to leave out television’s Top Dogs, especially when Charlie Brown’s sidekick beagle  Snoopy takes top billing in a list compiled by TV Guide this week.

Lassie, the faithful star of 20 seasons on television and countless film incarnations, took second place, while Jack Russell terrier Eddie of “Frasier” fame bounded in third.

Every dog must have its day, and for these pooches it’s the Oct 23 edition of TV Guide.
