Same. I tried guessing, but still 4.

I know I'm getting technical here but magician/illusionist wasn't Gob Bluth's profession. He never got paid for any of it (which is the definition of a profession.) He just did it... very badly.

Hey, he was a founding member of the Magician's Alliance. That definitely counts. Maybe getaway driver and bee keeper could be added as additional answers now...

technically he worked as a waiter in one episode accidentally and was paid for it, so perhaps that should be the answer

I typed in "none" before I remembered those little tricks he does.

I'm surprised Magnum P.I.'s profession isn't at 100%

I love how it changes "magician" to "illusionist".

Not sure how I missed Magnum, PI... that one was really obvious.

It's Arrested Development, not Arrest Development. An arrest development is probably something that happens on Cops.

I got a few by mostly guessing and I have't watched many episodes of those, but great quiz idea nevertheless.

I got it the first time I took this quiz... this time I couldn't get "personal investigator" out of my head though that's wrong. I also tried detective and I think just "investigator."

and this time around I discovered that, amusingly, simply "PI" will work.

I wasted quite a bit with the Ted Mosby question - till I realized I was trying different titles for Barney Stinson's job.

Just a reminder about "Arrest" Development typo. And since as far as I recall, Jerry Seinfeld did stand-up, would you accept "comic" as well?
