The perennial Jeopardy category, now a TWoP game. Given a short list of television-related things, identify what they have in common. As is usual in these games, guesser takes the next round. To start us off:

Demon
Insurance investigator/INTERPOL agent
Space criminal
Recently-fired FBI agent

Nope.

But you're on the right track that the bond here is a person.

Interesting thought, but no.

A hint: It's an attribute shared by a character on each show.

Thanks for the confirmation, Radagast. I'll add one more example to my list...

For British Eyes Only
Screech's Spaghetti Sauce
Bed Time
That Damn Donna Reed

Oh boy. I've single-handedly killed this thread, haven't I? I thought it was really clever, but I guess it's too obscure.

Here's a hint They are episode titles; I didn't add them because figuring out what shows they are from is a part of what they have in common, if that makes any sense.

I know what shows they're from, but I can't think of the link between them.

Ok. Another apology for the worst round ever, another hint: each of these episodes has a moment where one of the characters has a sort of meta, fourth wall moment.

Yes, Autobiography!! In each episode, a character breaks the fourth wall by saying the name of the tv show.

You're up. And to everyone else, I promise never to play this game again. I am very sorry.

Oh wow. I guess I'm up then, huh?

Alright, I have it!

Besides co-starring in Heroes, what do Hayden Panitierre, Jack Coleman and Adrian Pasdar have in common?
