I don't know what show ran the longest, but I know that "The Jeffersons" was the longest spin-off show.

Believe it or not, saved by the bell is one of the longest running shows ever, counting, good morning miss bliss, the college years and the new class... with all that saved by the bell, was on from 1983-2000! 1983-1984- Good morning, Miss Bliss. 1985-1993- Saved by the bell. 1993-1994, The College Years. 19940495-2000- The New Class.

also i am positive that married with children is also one of the longest running sitcoms ever, if not the longest running..

not true, facts of life beats the jeffersons! the facts of life is NBC's longest running show, EVER with nine seasons. and the jefferson on CBS only lasted eight years!

also, Melrose place on fox was on for nine years. there are a lot of shows that beat the jeffersons.

Actually, The Jeffersons is the LONGEST spin-off because it lasted eleven seasons from January 1975 to 1985. And if my math serves me correctly eleven is more than nine.

"Facts of Life" isn't NBC's longest show ever ("Bonanza" ran almost 14 years, and "Law and Order" is currently in season 12), or longest running sitcom ("Cheers" ran 11 years, 1982-93). I do believe that during its last year or two, it was NBC's longest-running current show at that time.
