The Top Entertainers of 2006 According to U.S. Magazine Entertainment Weekly



The cast of the television hospital drama "Grey's Anatomy" tops Entertainment Weekly's list of The Year's Top Entertainers because of their cultural impact.

The cast of the television hospital drama "Grey's Anatomy", including Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, and Katherine Heigl just to name a few, should be proud as they are all chosen as the Top Entertainers of 2006 by the U.S. magazine Entertainment Weekly. Not only the Emmy-Award winning medical drama has successfully generated more than 20 million weekly viewers, but also it has a cultural impact to them, that's why they deserve the title.

"'Grey's' isn't just a show, it's a phenomenon," said Entertainment Weekly Executive Editor Lori Majewski. "Back in May when last season's final show aired, every place in New York City was empty. You could get a table at the best restaurants," she said. YouTube, the wildly popular Web site where people post videos of anything from themselves singing to comedian Michael Richards shouting racial epithets, also makes the list because it too has a cultural impact beyond its cyberspace borders.

Next on the Top Entertainers of 2006 list is the fake reporter Borat who is praised for holding up "a mirror to America". Actress Meryl Streep, in addition, also joins the list for her two strong performances in the musical drama "A Prairie Home Companion" and the comedy "The Devil Wears Prada."

Other top entertainers including the new James Bond, Daniel Craig, singers Justin Timberlake and Beyonce Knowles, British actress Helen Mirren and Stephen Colbert, host of the television news spoof "The Colbert Report."
