Default Spinoffs that lasted longer than their parent shows.

Usually a spinoff from another series doesn't run for as many seasons as the show it was spun off from. But then there are always exceptions. I know there are some but probably not that many. But let's see how many we can come up with.

For example Perfect Strangers ran for 8 seasons while its spinoff Family Matters ran for 9 seasons.

Some were better than the parent series. Facts of Life for example.
