Have you already worked your way through all of Netflix’s offerings during your quarantine? Maybe it’s time to turn your attention back to old reliable network television. There’s more than enough content, decades worth, actually. Some news shows, like Meet the Press, the longest running television show of all time, has been on the air since 1947. That’s over 3,600 episodes across 72 years. Dramatic series don’t have the same staying power. Savvy tv viewers will guess the longest running series; soap operas such as Guiding Light, which spent 57 years on air with almost 16 thousand episodes until 2009. Here are the longest running prime-time television series of all time. Plenty of content to keep you occupied through many more pandemics.
