Agreed. Coronation street has been continuously running for longer than General Hospital, but has aired less episodes due to it initially being aired only 2 days a week. The answer should be changed - or the clue reworded to be the most episodes.

Wait a second – if this is *US* General Knowledge, why should a British soap opera be accepted as an answer to the question which had a perfectly acceptable American answer?? Quizmaster, you did a nice thing, but I don't think you had to do it – all people had to do was read the title of the quiz!

Even the quizzes I find to be "easy" hold me up on a couple of questions. Finally one that all of the answers came to be rather quickly. Although, I've never heard of Ginsberg being called Notorious RBG (but it was easy to guess) and I thought the Trump Organization answer was a trick question at first.

Guiding Light ran until 2009 and had 15762 TV episodes and in US. General Hospital is on 14557 but is now longer running in time. Unless the clue means most watched or time since first broadcast it should probably be Guiding Light.
