In the time when there was no Torrentz and Netflix, (yes, a world like that did exist!), we would rely on TV guides or TV schedules printed in the newspapers to catch our favorite TV shows and plan our lives accordingly. Kids and adults, both were guilty of doing this. The TV producers and scriptwriters also played a major role in adding fuel to our addiction. They did that by giving us some iconic characters and weaving engaging stories around them – ones that you absolutely could not miss! Maybe that’s the reason why there are so many TV shows that have a huge fan following, and have been on air for really long.
We bring you a list of such TV shows that have been on air for the longest of time. So, what are you waiting for? Stream them, Torrent them, or Netflix them…chop chop! We assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
