‘The Simpsons’ Joins Extremely Rare 600 Episode Club
The only other member is “Gunsmoke”

As tonight’s episode of Fox’s long-running animated series “The Simpsons” airs, it will join a rarified group.
Titled “Treehouse of Horror XXVII,” the show marks the 600th episode of the 27-year-old series.
One for the history books in more ways than one, tonight’s episode also marks the 27th annual “Simpsons” Halloween special.

The only other primetime series to surpass 600 episodes is “Gunsmoke,” which aired from 1955 to 1975. The Western series starring James Arness, Milburn Stone and Amanda Blake holds the record for the most episodes with 635. At that rate, “The Simpsons” won’t be break that record until 2018. That is, assuming it remains on the air.

Soap operas and daily game shows obviously blow this number away

Guiding Light is the highest with 18,262
SNL has 757, not sure why this doesn't count in that article

666?! I can't believe there have been that many. I know I said it somewhere in this thread, but I remember when episode 300 aired and was a big deal. Hard to believe more time has passed from seeing that episode to now, than from me being born and watching 300.
