Yet:

If A knows C only through B, under your proposed approach, this would count as one degree.
A to C takes 2 jumps. I would think that is two degrees but its all a matter of perspective I suppose.

I don't think appearances as a guest on a talk show count for the "Six Degrees" game, partly because that would mean just about every person who appeared on the Tonight Show with either Carson or Leno would be within three degrees of each other.

You need to connect them by roles they played on TV shows or movies (including films/TV shows where they played themselves, like James Doohan on Knight Rider 2000).

So, what degree is Pine to Kevin Bacon? Anyone figure that out?

If you want to go from there you are just 1 degree from a slab of bacon. The question is whether or not you are just as tasty after pan fried.
