What Is The Longest-Running Prime Time Television Series?

The Simpsons is the longest-running American prime time, scripted television series; surpassing the previous longest-running series, Gunsmoke. However, Gunsmoke's episode count of 635 episodes far surpasses The Simpsons, which will not reach that benchmark until its approximate 29th season. (Estimated count under normal programming schedules).
