What Jobs Do Emmy Nominated TV Characters Hold? (Infographic)

by Alex Moaba, posted Aug 22nd 2011 10:45AM
We often joke that 95% of the characters we see on TV are either doctors, lawyers or cops. But among characters nominated for Emmys this year, the occupational breakdown is considerably more diverse.

Led by Don Draper, 12.6% of nominated characters are businessmen. 10.3% are stay-at-home moms or dads, 8% are lawyers, and 6.9% are teachers. The biggest group in the graphic falls into the 'Other' category, which includes Matt Damon's '30 Rock' character Carol, who's a pilot, and Dexter Morgan, a forensic scientist/serial killer of evil people.

Check out the infographic, courtesy of the official Emmys site, after the jump for the full breakdown.
