IT IS of­fi­cial. Hamish Blake is Aus­tralia’s favourite TV per­son­al­ity... and the most an­noy­ing.

Switched On read­ers have had their say and the re­sults are in for our TV poll.

More than 2500 read­ers voted for their favourite and not-so-favourite TV stars and shows.

In a ma­jor up­set, Toni Col­lette (The United States of Tara) pipped Re­becca Gib­ney (Packed to the Rafters) as Favourite Aussie Ac­tress.

Gib­ney can take so­lace that Rafters was voted Favourite Aussie TV Pro­gram.

The Men­tal­ist’s Simon Baker was a run­away win­ner in the Favourite Aussie Ac­tor cat­e­gory.

Baker also eas­ily won Sex­i­est Male TV Star and Jen­nifer Hawkins was voted Sex­i­est Fe­male.

A stand­out, for all the wrong rea­sons, was Warnie, which swamped Worst Aussie TV Pro­gram.

View­ers had plenty to gripe about but “ TV shows not start­ing on time” and “too many ad­ver­tise­ments” stood out from the pack.

Other big win­ners were Den­nis Cometti who beat cricket leg­end Richie Be­naud as Favourite Sports Com­men­ta­tor, and Shaun Mi­callef, who was voted Favourite Aussie TV Pre­sen­ter.

Ed­die McGuire had the du­bi­ous hon­our of win­ning Most Over-Ex­posed TV Star.

A big thank you to Switched On read­ers for par­tic­i­pat­ing in the TV poll. Have fun read­ing the re­sults.
