List Rules Upvote the best television shows that ran for over 10 seasons. No talk shows.

When a TV show you love lasts more than 10 seasons, you know it must be pretty amazing. Classic shows like Friends, M*A*S*H, Frasier, and Cheers each ran on air for over a decade, largely due to fan support and the attention of millions of viewers. TV shows that lasted 10 seasons or more have proven that they can withstand the test of time - especially shows like The Simpsons and South Park that keep evolving and changing as the years go by. 

Television shows that have been on the air for 10+ seasons have proven that people enjoy the production, and still have a desire to see more. These shows have somehow managed to remain relevant and appealing to their viewers, even though times have changed since their first episode aired. The top writers and producers of these shows have combined quality and longevity to consistently develop new material, bringing both comfort and excitement to their fans. They also have the potential to accumulate a wide variety of viewers because of their tenure.   

Vote for your favorite television show with more than 10 seasons below! Feel free to add any that aren't already on the list.
