* The Boston Celtics from 1957 to 1976. Bill Russell was the only player to win all eleven titles. Havlicek was a member for the latter half of the 60s and the two titles from the 70s. (Nobody from the 1981 Champion Roster was a member back in 1976, making the '80s a {{Reboot}}.)
* The Chicago Bulls under Phil Jackson saw the entire roster (aside from Scottie Pippen) turnover between UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan's 18 month retirement between 1993 and 1995. Jordan and Pippen were the only leftovers from the first three peat (1990-2) in the second one (1996-8).

Added DiffLines:

* The world's longest-running SitCom, the [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] series ''Series/LastOfTheSummerWine'' (1973-2010) went through many major characters over the course of its run. As well as the sheer length of the series, this was because most of the characters were elderly, and so had to be replaced whenever an actor died or became too infirm for regular work.

* ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' lasted long enough to see every actor walk away for personal reasons. It began as a MadScientist and his [[TheIgor assistant]] tormenting a janitor and his robots, but eventually ended as a megalomaniacal woman, a [[PlanetOfTheApes Doctor Zaius]] {{expy}}, and a [[MysteriousWatcher brain guy]] tormenting an erstwhile temp worker and... well, the same robots, but with different voices. Joel, the creator and main host character, left the show to Mike in the middle of season five, neatly dividing the series (and fans) into two eras. Both hosts went on to start their own movie-mocking franchises in ''WebVideo/CinematicTitanic'' and ''Podcast/RiffTrax''. Both of those shows feature a mutually exclusive subset of [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]'s cast (except for Mary Jo Pehl and Trace Beaulieu, who have appeared in both series).

* ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' has gone through four hosts since it first hit the airwaves in 1975. The show had a daytime version from 1975-91, hosted by Chuck Woolery (1975-81), Pat Sajak (1981-89), Rolf Benirschke (1989), and Bob Goen (1989-91), with Susan Stafford as hostess until Vanna White replaced her in 1982. Averted with the 1983-present nighttime syndicated version, which has been hosted exclusively by Pat and Vanna. However, the announcer post has changed a few times: Charlie O'Donnell (1975-80), Jack Clark (1980-88), M.G. Kelly (1988-89), O'Donnell again (1989-2010), and Jim Thornton (2011-).

* The game show ''Series/FamilyFeud'' has also gone through many hosts. Richard Dawson was the original host from 1976-85, and after a three-year gap, the show was revived from 1988-94 with Ray Combs. Dawson returned for the 1994-95 season. After another hiatus, the show came back in 1999, with the hosting duties going to Louie Anderson (1999-02), Richard Karn (2002-06), John O'Hurley (2006-10), and Steve Harve (2010-present).

* Similarly, ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' has had only one host change since 1972, when Drew Carey took over for Bob Barker in 2007. (This does not count the various nighttime versions over the years, hosted in chronological order by Dennis James, Tom Kennedy, and Doug Davidson.) However, the announcer post has changed three times (Johnny Olson from 1972-84, Rod Roddy from 1985-2003, Rich Fields from 2004-10, and George Gray from 2011 onward, plus Burton Richardson for the 1994 nighttime version), and countless numbers of models ("Barker's Beauties") have rotated in and out of the cast over time.

* ''YouCantDoThatOnTelevision,'' whose premise required that most of its cast be kids, would retire its regulars as they got too old, or at least came to look to old. Hostess Christine [=McGlade=] got to stay into her twenties, because she still looked convincingly like a youngish teenager. By its end, the show had a completely new cast except for the two adult regulars (Les Lye and Abby Hagyard).

* Since the original ''Series/{{CSI}}'' premiered in 2000, its later seasons have seen the departure of three of its leads (Grissom, retired, and Catherine, new job, and Ray Langston (who replaced Grissom), forcibly resigned), two of its secondary leads (Sara, quit from PTSD but now back as effective regular, and Warrick, KilledOffForReal) and a number of its recurring supporting roles (Wendy, Sofia, and the very short tenure of Riley, meant to replace Sara). Most of the departures were of the "actor wanting to move on" variety, but contract disputes and in Warrick's case, personal problems, also factored. As of the series' conclusion in 2015, the only actor to be a part of the regular cast for all fifteen seasons was George Eads as Nick Stokes, and this was only because of the show's abrupt cancellation, he was PutOnABus in the finale and would no longer have been with the cast had the show continued.

Because of this, he did not appear in the 2-hour GrandFinale, even though Grissom, Catherine, and Brass all did make return appearances.
