Re your comment below:

"Even given that it's a TV/movie list, how the *heck* did Philip Marlowe not make the list?"

I don't think it means CREATED for TV or movies, but successful in those mediums no matter where the character first appeared. After all, Sam Spade and Sherlock Holmes are both on the list.

And using that gauge, Marlowe more than deserves a spot. Eight feature-length movies (including two seminal noirs, MURDER, MY SWEET and THE BIG SLEEP), two TV-movies, two TV series ought to qualify you.

Come to think of it, is Mike Hammer (five feature-or four, depending on whether or not you count the many incarnations of the Stacy Keach series as one single show]) on the list?
