Can you find the one show that does NOT have 100 episodes or more?

Which show never made it to triple digits?

In the TV industry, conventional wisdom states 100 episodes is the magic number that guarantees a show will sell into syndication and live long after it’s original run. It usually takes four or five seasons to hit triple digits, although that varies depending on the show — especially with classic television, where seasons could be over 40 episodes long!

Of course, in reality, things aren’t as simple. Some long-running shows don’t do well past their initial release and plenty of short-lived shows, like The Jetsons and The Addams Family, have become iconic.

Here are nine shows from the Sixties and Seventies that all have around 100 episodes. Can you find the one that doesn’t quite reach the benchmark? Keep guessing until you’ve found it!

Oh my gosh! Took me four tries! Who knew Gilligan and crew were only on for 98 episodes. Kind of felt like they were on that island forever

I should have known because Gilligan's Island is the most ridiculous show ever made and it should never have gotten 9 episodes, let alone 100, but I didn't guess it because it seems all the lame shoes just keep getting renewed while decent programs fall by the wayside with too much regularity.
I mean who goes on a 3-hour- tour and takes everything they own with them?! No one! 😵

Agree 100%. Lamest show ever made. The fact that it's still in reruns is sheer absurdity. They can build huts and all sorts of gadgets but can't build a damned boat to get off the stupid island.
Wow 😳...I'm sorry you feel that way about Gillian's Island 🌴

Precisely! And it's never funny, either. Not even for the time period in which it originally aired. That said, I watched several episodes of it Sunday afternoon, guess I'm a glutton for punishment!

Guess I got LUCKY picking "Gilligan's Island" first. MY thinking was: Most shows only have 26-28 episodes a year; GI was only on 3 years, so obviously it has less than 100 episodes. BUT, just checked it out, and the IMDb indicates it had *99* episodes. WOW.

Got it, and only after 7 tries.
Being a big Gilligan's Island fan, I should have done better on this. But then, I only knew that they had 3 seasons(because Russell Johnson talks about how they were counting on having that 4th season that never happened) but never thought about it in terms of how many episodes. All I knew for sure was that The Twilight Zone and The Brady Bunch must have had more than 100 episodes so I wasn't about to pick them.

3rd try…….. Gilligan’s Island was over exposed, just to much! I did watch the movie when they got off the Island, it was ok but I wished Tina Louise would of reprised the role.

Yeah, having the whole cast together again would have made those movies perfect.

Sadly, the reason I read that GILLIGAN"S ISLAND was cancelled was because a networks executives wife hated the show!
Zip Randall 24 days ago
But loved Gunsmoke, which was on the chopping block and they had to get rid of GI to save its time slot. Well, didn't HAVE to, but did because she loved Gunsmoke.
JDnHuntsvilleAL Randall 24 days ago
Not quite. She LOVED Gunsmoke, so in order to make room for THAT her husband cancelled GI.

I was surprised ABC did not pick it up, it would have been perfect for them, they always struggled during the 60s. It was not until the 70s that Aron Spelling and Gary Marshall came along that they hit there stride!!

Since PBS's all-time classic children's show ZOOM will turn 50 in January, how about a quiz of ZOOMer/Not ZOOMer come early 2022?

And yet, we get 3 hours of Gilligan every Sunday.
Can we PLEASE see something else on Sunday afternoons?
How about The Rockford Files?
Or if you want comedy in that spot, how about The Golden Girls?
I'm speaking personally, but I'm sick to death of Gilligan right now; I'd rather clean my house than watch it another Sunday. And I HATE housework.
shorty251 shorty251 25 days ago
I'd even be happy with 3 hours of The Love Boat or Fantasy Island.
Gilligan is BORING, we've seen them all repeatedly.

Please, something, just about ANYTHING else!!!

I would love to see love boat and fantasy island
"Or if you want comedy in that spot, how about The Golden Girls?"

What does "The Golden Girls" have to do with comedy? :-0

I got it in one.
That could have been harder, they should have included more TV series that only lasted 3 years
but had over 100 episodes. Peter Gunn for one, with 114.

Got it on the first try!
moax429 Terrence 25 days ago
Me, too.

I thought "The Partridge Family" for sure would have been included, since it only had *96* episodes!

I new it was Gilligan as soon as I saw it on the list.
