''Stargate'': Longest What?

By RD Heldenfels Published: July 27, 2006

When Sci Fi had a little celebration for ''Stargate SG-1'' during the TV critics' summer press tour, I heard the network make a claim that just didn't sound right. It's also in press materials for the show, and it goes like this: ''With 200 episodes, the longest-running drama in cable history has also became the longest-running sci-fi series in television history.''


To which I say: Doctor Who.


Forget the recent revival. The original version ran for 26 years. It had more than 700 episodes -- 3 1/2 times what Stargate has done. (The 200th episode airs on Aug. 18.)


Methinks that Sci Fi overreached. Comments?
