Best Answer

The Simpsons has earned the accolades of the longest running prime time scripted comedy,the longest running animated program in the U.S. & the longest running prime time American sitcom but it isn't remotely close to simply being 'the longest running TV show'.

Meet the Press started in November 6, 1947 & continues today.

There are many more shows in America & worldwide that have lasted longer than The Simpsons, some lasting decades longer w/ thousands of episodes & some that are still on the air today.

The Simpsons wasn't the longest running cartoon family in 1997 nor is it today.Japan's Sazae-san was, is & will remain for a while the longest running animated TV show in history, obviously this answers the question of the longest running cartoon family as well.It debuted in 1969 and produces new episodes today-However if you mean strictly American television, the closest answer is The Flintstones although it only ran for 6 seasons.
