DANNY DeVITO's curmudgeonly character on sitcom TAXI has topped a new list of bad TV bosses.

DeVito's testy taxi dispatcher LOUIE DE PALMA beat out cartoon boss MR Burns from The Simpsons and ER's arrogant DR PAUL ROMANO (Paul McCrane) in the new INSIDE TV magazine poll in the US.

Also on the list were manipulative MILES DRENTELL (David Clennon) from THIRTYSOMETHING and Candice Bergen's impossible newswoman Murphy Brown.
