1. The Mary Tyler Moore Show

Answer: Phyllis

Phyllis started out as a woman who lived in the apartment building where Mary lived in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show". Eventually, it was revealed that Phyllis was married to the man who owned the building, but he was never seen. After a few years, Phyllis had her own series, which was an interesting experiment in television because people in general didn't like her.

She had a daughter and her husband had died, so she moved in with her dead husband's mother and stepfather.
2. The Bob Newhart Show

Answer: Emily

5. The Muppet Show

Answer: Miss Piggy

"The Muppet Show" featured puppets who acted like people. Part of the show was comedy skits and songs while some of it was "behind the scenes" lives of the characters.

6. All in the Family

Answer: Gloria

Gloria was the grown daughter of Archie Bunker in "All in the Family". She had struggled to be her own person after having been bossed around by her opinionated father and then her husband, which Archie called "Meathead".

Eventually, Gloria got her own series, "Gloria", but it didn't last long.

She was one of three women on CBS sitcoms who were nicknamed "Flo" and starred in spin-offs. Florence was the maid of "The Jeffersons" who briefly had a job helping to run a hotel in "Checking In".
