Detective Munch From "Law & Order" Is TV's Kevin Bacon

The characters from nearly all of your favorite TV shows, from The Simpsons to Lost to Seinfeld, can be traced back to Detective Munch of Law & Order: SVU. He knows everyone.

The character started his law enforcement career on "Homicide: Life on the Street" back in 1993, and currently appears on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", but he's shown up on a LOT of other shows as well.

From "Arrested Development" to "The X-Files" to friggin' "Sesame Street," Munch is the thread that ties a multitude of worlds together.

Which means all of your favorite characters know a guy who dated a girl who worked with a guy who met a girl who worked a bar that once served some people who know him. And other, far stranger connectons...

In 1997, Homer thought he found an alien in Springfield, and two paranormal investigators, Agents Mulder and Scully of "The X-Files," were brought in to help solve the case.

...a Chicago-area hospital where hotshot surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Geiger works when he's not assisting the Baltimore PD with homicide cases, as he did in the "Homicide: LOTS" episode "A Doll's Eyes."
