That puts you in the Highly Informed Hipster category.

Not sure about Ryan Seacrest, Michael. That guy is nearly as ubiquitous as his role model Dick Clark was! He has infiltrated nearly every area of modern life. Unless you don't watch any TV, I think most are likely to have not been able to avoid him! Very good list otherwise!

Should I be embarrassed a few of those names I don't believe I've ever heard before?

I know of some people who have never heard of him but they are not major TV watchers.


Not at all. I purposely included names that many people would easily know while many others would say, "Who?"
