The Simpsons is a sitcom, and therefore can not break the record for longest running drama.

Heck there is a German Cop show that started in 1978 (making it 32) and that as far as I know is still on the air, dwarfing both The Bill & L&O in the cop show genre.

Its also had more than a few spin-offs (including one that crossed over with the before mentioned The Bill)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOKO_5113

Seems to be some confusion, I think its true, but its not 100% yet, if true this is a massive screw up by NBC

There is also Tatort with currently 770 episodes since 1970.

But it is made by a variety of regional networks, so it may not count as a series.

Re: NBC cancels Law & Order

I agree that they can't possibly be thinking of canceling with being so close to history. What defines a 'season'? We're not asking for 26 eps of drivel. If they only need 7 episodes than by gosh make it a mid season replacement 7 episode cross over storyline with one of the spin offs. What else does NBC have going for it anyway? The entire network could go black one night and it would take three days for the country to notice.

Although it would be amazing if Dick Wolf did get a deal on another network. I dare say that's what NBC is playing at, that a bidding war would jack up all the shows. NBC or Dick Wolf perhaps doesn't have the production money either is talking about. After all, Criminal Intent is already part and parcel with USA Network, isn't it? But that's still NBC universal still. I don't think the flagship channel would risk going to TNT, because that would make it the longest running prime time drama, but not the longest network prime time drama.

Geez, do 12 eps of the original and have those segway into the LA show. Why cancel one and start the other cold? NBC did all this dicking to Homicide years ago, given it a 4 episode second season. Twits.

Who is running NBC really. Is anyone? Is it a monkey? Heroes is in the toilet, Journeyman was cut, Crusoe was horrible. Didn't they do the new Bionic Woman and Knight Rider redos? Good God. They should go black. They don't have any soaps left either do they?

Doesn't the show have to be funny to be considered a sitcom.

Re: NBC cancels Law & Order

^ and isn't the customer always right? NBC should listen to its audience. If there's no Law and Order flagship, what are they going to put in its place? 'Law and Order: Classic,The Jerry Orbach Years'? That would be the most ironic thing, cancel it with a season away only to show reruns in the slot for half a season. They repeat SVU three times a week don't they?

seems confusing, but at 40 years, it just goes to prove my point that NBC should not be making claims about L&O being the longest running cop drama, yet alone longest running drama, when I could name 2 cop shows that have run longer.

Again, the record is for longest-running prime time drama on American network television. Some writers just don't bother writing all that out and use an imprecise shorthand.

Very few shows labeled "sitcom" are truly funny these days.

Re: NBC cancels Law & Order

I'm just waiting for Comcast to come in and fire half these brain dead NBC execs, especially Zucker. GE clearly is not jumping in to clean NBC's house, hopefully Comcast will when the 51% deal is finalized.

How do you not even let L&O have even a partial 21st season? If I was running NBC i would be proud for people to say the longest running prime-time drama is NBC's Law and Order.

I'm just trying to picture the idea of "no new L&O" on tv. I rarely watch primetime but if I do that is one of my go-to choices. The world has turned upside down.
That's what was said when M*A*S*H, Cheers, and The Cosby Show went off the air.
