I know it's not B or C, and if I use the 50:50, it will probably leave A and D, so I'll ATA.

B: Patricia Heaton
It would appear that Robert was confused - Louis-Dreyfus wasn't on "Friends"; she was on "The New Adventures of Old Christine", which didn't last 9 seasons. Heaton didn't do "King of Queens"; she was on "Everybody Loves Raymond" as well as "Modern Family". Both of them ran 9 seasons.

I'd use my 50:50, but probably walk away also.

And it would appear that you then became confused, as I imagine that they likely listed JLD for Seinfeld (9 seasons) and Veep (the one where she has won many Emmys over 7 seasons) and Heaton was on Raymond and The Middle. :D

I didn't even think about "Veep", but even if I had, I didn't think it was on for 9 seasons.
