"THE JACK BENNY SHOW" ran for a LONG, LONG time, if you count it's run on radio and TV. Not sure how long, though, but that show wasn't exactly a sitcom. It was a sitcom/variety show, a straight sitcom, or a straight variety show.

Bumping this thread from 2008 to see if the list of sitcoms that have lasted 100 or more episodes have been updated anywhere?

Edit: Also, it's an ancient thread, but it ptobably belongs under General Discussion instead of spinoffs.

Could we please have an updated list? It would be really amazing if someone broke it down to the 4 networks as well!

Wow...Ozzie and Harriet the longest running sitcom still?? I remember watching reruns of that show on CBN in the 1980s (Pat Robertson's network) and thinking it was painfully dull. Lethargic and lifeless. I watched just to see Ricky Nelson hit puberty.

The Beverly Hillbillies was such a great show, but it ran way too long. I think after the 4th or 5th season it was done (it ran for 9 seasons).

I suppose one could list shows that are not on CBS, NBS or ABC that have been on a long time. As I say someone could, not me don't have the pep to research.

The show's pilot was broadcast in early 1973 with the first series starting that autumn. The series continues to this day with the show's 29th series, coming soon in 2008.


Its 31st and final season was in 2010. (295 episodes)

I'll reiterate what Alan Brady's Hair said earlier, and question whether this thread belongs in the short-lived sitcoms forum. (Can moderators move threads by any chance?) But nonetheless...

If anyone is still looking for an updated longest-running series by episode count list, this should likely answer your questions:

List of television programs by episode count

It's from Wikipedia, but it appears to be reasonably accurate. It includes not only sitcoms, but dramas, variety and game shows, and even soap operas. All series in the history of TV which have produced 150 or more episodes are supposedly on the list.

I heard of Ozzie And Harriet but I don't recall actually watching it, even in re-runs. It was well before my time , I guess.
Still I saw some episode clips on TV. It did seem like an old, lifeless TV show.

Jack's first radio show was in 1932, it can be considered the direct successor to what became The Jack Benny Program on Radio and TV. His last weekly TV episode was in 1965. The only small gaps being jumps back and forth between NBC and CBS a couple of times on Radio and TV. So he was never "canceled" just breaks.

In 1965 he started a series of twice-yearly hour specials for NBC that did well (Although they did self-sponsor at least one with RCA Television) and was in pre-production on his "Third Farewell Special" when he died. (Draft script still exists)

Sometime I think, I being born in 1957, wonder what it would be to see a show from 30 years earlier.. Could I see movies with Harold Lloyd or Al Jolson and enjoy them. In my area a local cinema was having a silent showing of Peter Pan and Lindsay Crouse was to do narrations. (Her dad was involved in playwriting, Sound of Music is one, in the 1940's) i thought How dull could that be. It just didn't go over with me.

I think the Simpsons is the longest running American sitcom with 29 seasons. Last of the Summer Wine (UK) had 31 seasons but aired for 37 years.

Simpsons is also the longest running spinoff as well (It spun off from the Tracey Ullman Show). Incidentally, it's also the most profitable ever when you add in merchandise (I just read this somewhere).
