Mario.

Hi

Drew Carey, Johnny Carson, and all others that have shows using their real names are not characters. All the late night talk shows really do not fit the criteria. Nor do any daytime talk shows.

Just saying!!! ACT1 is correct......

You want things like..........

Gilligans Island

McHales Navy

Kojak

The Jeffersons

Sanford and Son

House

Bob Newhart Show

Max Headroom

Mike and Molly

King of Queens

King of the Hill

Maude

Archie Bunkers Place

Larry Sanders Show

New Adventure of the Old Christine

Murphy Brown

The ones below are high rated and well known and would likely garner good vote totals!!!!

Loki

Grey's Anatomy

The Sopranos

Dexter

Lucifer

Better Call Saul

Bosch

Doctor Who

Arrow

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Sherlock

Castle

Killing Eve

Spartacus

Columbo

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Monk

Frasier

Malcolm in the Middle

Chuck

Poirot

Hannibal

Luther

Angel

Jessica Jones

@Pencho15

thank you for your feedback, I think all of them are eligible, since none is a talk show, as @K_PAXTON correctly pointed out.
