The promotional picture for King of the Hill looks like Bobby has just farted as this "picture" was taken.

The promotional picture for Petticoat Junction is disturbing. It looks like they are serving up the dog on a platter.

brilhant list. Thanks!!!
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jul 26 14:17
Are you just listing TV shows that ran for multiple seasons? "WWE Raw" is the longest-running episodic television show of all time. As of this past Monday they broadcast their 1,000th episode.
Posted: 2 years, 3 months ago at Jul 27 18:35
Great list. May I suggest Smallville (2002-2011), 216 episodes.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Nov 18 5:24
This list is inaccurate. Ever hear of Doctor Who? It's an extremely popular science fiction show in England, and it's still running today. It's been running for 49 years.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 16 23:13
Actually, South Park had at least 208 episodes.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 16 23:18
How about these for example:
Guiding Light (1937-2009) Episodes: 18,262
The Day of our Lives (1965-present) Episodes: 11 899
General Hospital (1963-present) Episodes: over 12 500
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 17 1:22
Baywatch (or should I say ''Babewatch''), Murder, She Wrote and South park are just awful and boring.
But they've cancelled some amazing shows, yet they keep that trash. Well that is just beyond me.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 17 2:22
Some really good shows here. I absolutely loved the X-Files, MASH and Frazier! I have to add my voice to some others here. Doctor Who is incredible, but it has not run from 1963-present. It ran from 1963-1989. It was relaunched in 2005 and is still going (once again!)
@Rebekka: I completely agree with you!
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 17 23:44
it's a really great list alice it make remembered some great souvenirs of some moments that i've had watching those shows... i've had a crush on mary ellen (judy norton-taylor) from the waltons as a teenager (what a sexy body she had meow (lol)) and i was a big fan of Hawai 5-0 and Alfred Hitchcock present and the X-files and that show was canceled too early. great work alice : )
