The longest running United States TV series is Meet the Press. The series premiered on November 6, 1947, and still airs on NBC, 65 years later. Check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_longest-running_United_States_television_series for a list of other long running series.

Well, you are obviously not british then... :-)
In Britain its a institution like the Queen - and almost as long in service as her. Actors started their career in it and died as old people in it. Thats what the series is about, the life stories of some families living in this street.
Something like Meet the Press I wouldnt call TV series - if so, the evening news would be the longest running series. But thats a matter of definition...

I'm not British. I live in the US and I've been watching it ALL these years. Several of the actors who started as teenagers in the earliest days of "Corrie" are STILL with it and now in their 70's. It's not a 'soap' like American soap operas. It's drama/comedy, one long *contining* story of the daily lives of the 60 or 70 residents who live on one block on one street in a fictitious section, Weatherfield, in the real city of Manchester, England.
The Canadian Broadcasting Channel (CBC) carries it 5 days a week and then re-runs all 5 weekly episodes again on Sunday mornings.

If you mean the longest running show in PRIME time, that's probably 60 Minutes.
