Yes the claim is LISP and Perl aren't mainstream while JS is.
I was surprised to see LISP on position 16 in the TIOBE index, but that should be related to the actual hype around Clojure.
Personally I only learned and used LISP to script emacs (but never repented, since I learned a lot about the concepts Larry had in mind when designing Perl)
Well and to read and understand Clojure books ;)
Actually Perl for sure influenced JS in many aspects, but it seem that for many people Perl is something like the strange boy in the neighborhood everybody met, but nobody cares to know.
