Many of the most amazing shows on TV have had a very short lifespan of 4 or 5 seasons.  “Lost” only had 6.  And on rare occasion you’ll find a show breaking records all over the place by getting past 9 seasons (Friends, Seinfeld, ER, etc.). 

What the newest megaTV hit to break into the 9-season club?  Sponge Bob Square Pants.  That’s right… absorbent & yellow & porous & 9 seasons old is he.  (Here comes the sarcasm) Can we all let out a collective deep sigh of relief across the nation?  We were so fearful that this little guy would go away!  5 year olds & college-age stoners are rejoicing everywhere!
