    I would say so. The jokes still hold up today.

    Probably. It's just as funny today as it was when it first aired because most of the jokes are timeless. I'd rather watch an episode of I Love Lucy than a modern sitcom.

    Dr. Pepper What, me worry?

    Naw, it certainly could be the first comedy to have such success for over a century or however you want to phrase it, but the longest running current program that will be around for 100 years or more will probably be Meet The Press, it's on it's 70th year now, on the air since 1947.

    Yeah, but nobody watches Moet The Press so that shouldn't count. :)

    On The Jackie Gleason Show, I assume?

    Hey, not a bad year for good TV. :)

    A hugely influential one at least, as the first Dragnet episode aired on Dec 16

    The Three Stooges would have been funny in 2500BCE and will remain funny in 5000AD

    Does "Our Gang" count? It did not get shown on TV until 1955, but many of the episodes featured footage from the 1920s.
