we all know, of course, that Alan Alda directed A LOT of "MASH" episodes, but Kelsey Grammer directed "FRASIER" sometimes, Don Adams directed 1 or 2 episodes of "GET SMART", Michal Landon directed some episodes of "BONANZA" (in fact, that's where he got his start in directing), and "LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRARIE", Jerry Paris directed some episodes of "THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW" also "HAPPY DAYS", "THE ODD COUPLE", and "MORK & MINDY", Jonethan Frakkes directed some episodes of "STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION" & "STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE" and he, LeVar Burton, and Roxanne Briggs- Dawson directed some episodes of "STAR TREK: VOYAGER".

Tom Welling sometimes directs on Smallville
Jason Priestly sometime on Beverly Hills, 90210

I wonder if Ron Howard got his start (directing) on HappyDays?

Bill Bixby did some directing for episodes of his series The Courtship of Eddie's Father. Probably directed for some of his later TV acting work as well.

Bill Bixby also directed episodes of The Incredible Hulk.

In fact, he was still directing episodes of the sitcom Blossom almost up to the time of his death.

Ozzie Nelson -- directed Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet and Ozzie's Girls. Also, some eps of Adam-12 and Bridget Loves Bernie.

And James Komack I think did some directing for The Courtship of Eddie's Father while also a regular member of the cast.
