Number of episodes aired. Gunsmoke ran for IIRC 22 years, 861 episodes. 
Yesterdays Simpsons made 862 episodes. Gunsmoke started in b&w, shot 
with image orthicon cameras, switched to vidicon's about the same time I 
was helping make the vidicon cameras that went down into the mohole on 
the Trieste in Fed '60. Yeah, I'm that old an old fart. :)
