Facebook London, Dec 27 (ANI): JK Rowling’s Harry Potter has beaten every TV show, film and song as well as YouTube and Facebook to land the title of greatest “entertainer” of the decade.

To come up with a “top 100″ list of the things that have kept people entertained, American magazine Entertainment Weekly looked at films, TV shows, albums, books, characters, dresses, music videos and trends, reports The Daily Express.

It said: “Harry Potter lives in our memories more vividly than any other character we’ve read or seen on screen this decade.

“It’s precisely because JK Rowling created him not as a mighty doer of epic deeds but as a regular kid; a teenager just trying to get by in a crazy, scary world. Who can’t relate to that?”

The Sopranos TV series came second in the list, followed by YouTube and film The Lord of the Rings at third and fourth spots, respectively.

Ricky Gervais’s hit TV series The Office was 28th on the list compiled by the staff at the magazine.

Daniel Craig wearing blue swimming trunks in the film Casino Royale came 71st. (ANI)
