Interesting that they they also mention MGM's claim that SG:1 was the longest running Science fiction show in US history. I thought Star Trek:TOS was..
Turtle's right. TOS is way down there, with only three seasons.
And from what I understand, Smallville has now passed SG-1. Everyone knew it was coming, but it's still a bit sad. It was nice to hold that crown over The X-Files for a while (though I'm a HUGE Phile, too). Of course, when you take the word "US" out of the title, Doctor Who slaughters everything, so...meh.
Of course, I suppose if one interpreted "longest-running" as been on the longest in syndication, TOS would be up there (though I suspect TNG might actually have it beat, as it's on somewhere every day still, and it's pushing 25 years old on its own...hm...).
Anyway... just thought I'd wave from lurker-land, too!
