About This Quiz

Ever since television broadcast its very first commercial image, we have been bombarded with many kinds of characters and situations throughout the decades. We've had many great television programs since the 1950s up to today, and some that were far less memorable. Sometimes, though, some of these old TV programs get rediscovered by newer audiences, while some are adapted by modern producers for modern audiences.

What's undeniable in the TV landscape is the proliferation of very memorable characters who may be from the wrong side of life or the perfect side of it. Wherever they emerge from, we love and embrace them just the same, especially if we as audiences find ourselves relating to these characters' concerns and thoughts. And of course, one of the things we can relate to are their professions.

Do you remember a memorable TV character solely because they had such a unique job? Did you wish you also worked like them? Some of their stories prompt this natural reaction. That's why we're sure that you could still remember the jobs that some of these unforgettable characters held. Care to test that knowledge? Open this quiz up and see. Have fun!
