I agree with almost all of them but the Game Show Host. Drew Carey or Wayne Brady should have gotten the award. Have of the time you can't even find Celebrity Name Game but Let's make a deal and the price is right are always on at the same time. Plus they are a lot more entertaining in their roles. Craig was great on his talk show but no so much as a game show host.

Some of the interesting tidbits include: * The Doctors did not start as a serial; it began as a "half-hour anthology series of medical dramas, set in the large metropolitan Hope Memorial Hospital, and with the four principals alternating daily in the lead role, according to NBC's original announcement.
