Can you match the TV stars to their longest-running shows?

Who had more years: Taylor or Matlock? Slaughter or Stubing?

Lighting can strike twice. Some actors managed to star in two hit TV shows. We just can't get enough of these stars.

You remember the shows. What might surprise you is which series lasted longer.

Didn't realize some of the shows lasted as long as they did.
And no, Galactica 1980 doesn't count as the second season of Battlestar Galactica.

11/11! Bonus question: Which last longer, Perry Mason or Ironside?

Yep, Mason 9 seasons, Ironside 8 seasons!

How 'bout Bill Bixby? My Favorite Martian, Courtship of Eddie's Father, or the Incredible Hulk. (We'll take it as read that Goodnight Beantown and The Magician didn't quite last as long.)

Or Michael Landon: Bonanza, Highway to Heaven or Little House on the Prairie?

Buddy Ebsen: Beverly Hillbillies or Barnaby Jones?

Leonard Nimoy: Star Trek or just *his* time on Mission: Impossible?

The Bob Newhart Show or Newhart?

Howard Hesseman: WKRP in Cincinnati, or just *his* time on Head of the Class (skip the season when he was replaced by BIlly Connolly)?

Guy Williams: Zorro or Lost in Space? And while we're on Disney stars, Fess Parker: Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone?

9 right, missed Robert Culp because I didn't know and Lucille Ball because I checked a box before finishing reading the answer choices -- my own fault, had not scrolled down far enough to see the additional show listed plus the actual correct answer (which I like to think I might have gotten).

As soon as I saw the question, I knew Lucy was the number of the beast as Iron Maiden would say [6/6/6]!

PS Greatest American Hero is also a three-peat!
