Ah, so annoyed I didn't make the connection between 'Caine' and 'Horatio'! I spend half my life making fun of that guy

"Will" should work for Riker. No one called him "William."

Can't believe I missed Kelly Kapowski. Also, I don't think Tobias is necessarily any more famous than Maebe. Maebe was the first name I typed in.

Yeah that's kind of the fatal flaw of this quiz. Most of the characters have family members, some of whom are equally famous as them.

Maebe was the true joke of the name that took 2 years to come to fruition.

Sterling Archer is an animated character on a cable TV cartoon. Jonathan Archer was the captain of the USS Enterprise. If being the star of a Star Trek series on network TV doesn't make you more famous than an FX cartoon character then I don't know what does! Also, another vote here for Joe Swanson; NOBODY can argue that Parks and Recreation is a bigger hit than Family Guy!

I'm a little surprised by the low %'s in the stats for this one. I thought Americans watched a lot of TV!

As an American, I surely do. But never heard of half these characters.

I am surprised by how few people got Adrian Monk. Granted, that is my all time favorite show.

quizmaster you might be surprised by low % but I was surprised by how obscure most of these characters were. I have watched a lot of TV over my lifetime and many of these names were not familiar to me. so i just guessed first names which didn't help either, ha ha. Tough quiz maybe change some of the rare ones and throw in an easy one or two.

I kept typing in 'Derek' Morgan (character from Criminal Minds). I had to look up Dexter Morgan -- never heard of him or the show!

Lindsay and Maebe are at least as important (and probably more than) Tobias Funke. An argument could be made that Edith is as important to "All in the Family" as Archie.

I'm going to disagree with that last part because Archie continued on Archie Bunker's Place (whereas Edith died). I definitely think Archie is more famous than Edith, and he certainly played a character named Bunker longer.

I think "Ellen Morgan" from Ellen Degeneres's show "Ellen" should be accepted.

The only Brennan I could think of was Bishop Len from 'Father Ted'. Oh well. And maybe accept 'Chris' for 'Turk'?
