Rachel Maddow has arrived.

The MSNBC host has made a list the includes such TV luminaries as Tina Fey, Elisabeth Murdoch and Tyra Banks. In fact, Maddow is the only TV news host to make TVWeek’s Women in Television: 2008 list, unless you include Barbara Walters who made it alongside her The View co-hosts.

TVWeek says Maddow made the list because, “She is the biggest, brightest overnight star ever created in the cable news universe.”

> More: The icing on the cable cake — Friday’s ratings. Maddow won her time slot in younger viewers, coming in second in Total Viewers. She also helped deliver strong viewership for the re-air of Countdown at 10pmET which also came in first in younger viewers in its time slot.
