The Simpsons

The Fox network's most successful series to date was a spin-off from "The Tracey Ullman Show" in which originally appeared as one minute shorts. The executive producers of that series, James L. Brooks and Sam Simon decided that these characters could support a half an hour series. It is now reported as the longest animated series in prime-time network television.

The Simpsons Renewed Through Season 30

FOX announced a renewal for The Simpsons today that takes it into even more record-breaking territory. The network has ordered Seasons 29 and 30 of the landmark animated series, which already holds the distinction of being TV's longest-running animated series, sitcom, and prime time scripted series.
Today's two-season order takes The Simpsons to a whopping 669 episodes, which surpasses Gunsmoke (at 635) for the largest number of episodes for any scripted TV series in history. The impressive feat adds yet another entry in the show's growing list of records that will quite possibly never be broken. And with the Sunday night staple continuing to pull in healthy ratings, there are no indications that its run will stop at 30 seasons.
