* ''LawAndOrder'' and its assorted spinoffs. When Diane Neal left SVU, she actually said she was surprised she lasted as long as she did, considering Dick Wolf is known for liking to constantly rotate its cast members. The original series ran for twenty years, and the last original cast member, Steven Hill, left after ten. If you don't count him as original because he wasn't in the pilot, the last one left after five (Christopher Noth).

* ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver has a new batch of contestants every year (aside from ''Ever''), which means [[PeopleSitOnChairs they don't count.]] The panel of experts, however, do. The current crop--Cam Woolley, Philippe Létourneau, Shyamala Kiru, and Tim Danter--have been around since Season 8. They are the only ones--out of 14 experts--to have been around for more than three seasons. Of the others, Peter Mellor, Dr. Louisa Gemboura, and Scott Marshall were the only ones to last more than ''one'' season (three for each).
