Three successful series showdown!
Today at lunch, mrfantasy brought up an excellent game. So, I figure I'll rip him off and let you people try it out.

Find an actor or actress who has been in THREE successful television shows. Prime time, running for at least two seasons, television shows. Game shows do not count. No reality, they've got to be a character. No daytime soap operas, they're an incestuous lot. Playing a minor character does not count. For at least one series, they have to be one of the major roles. Cartoons do count, but only if it follows the above criteria (Family Guy, Simpsons, whatever).

So Seth Green, for example doesn't count. Greg the Bunny didn't last, he was on Buffy for two seasons, Family Guy counts, but he wasn't on Angel long enough. William Shatner does count: Star Trek, Boston Legal, TJ Hooker.

Any questions will be unscreened and clarified, so ask them in comments independent from your guesses.

IMDB use is permitted (as if I could stop it). Comments will be screened, highest score gets a prize.

EDIT: PLEASE INCLUDE THE NAMES OF THE SERIES, SO I CAN VERIFY YOUR CLAIMS MORE EASILY

Feeling: jubilant jubilant

There's a few I've got in the wings that are ALMOST there. And there's millions of people with two long-running series and a large number of ONE or half season sitcoms. It's a brain-hurting game indeed. You find a shitload of people who just barely miss the cut.

Heh, I was kind of hoping that you would weigh in, knowing your fandom.

That's an impressive list, and the longest I've seen so far!

Correct.
Correct.
Correct, though does the second really count as a new show? I guess so.
Correct, and one of the few females!
Correct, good one!
Correct, another good one!
Correct.
Correct.

8 points for altoidsaddict!

He's another close, but not quite, that I thought of. Unfortunately, despite the third character showing up often, it's not a regular character. Doesn't make it into the credits, doesn't show up for a majority of episodes in a season, isn't a major character.

He's one that stumped me too, as I SWORE he was in something else.

An impressive FOUR series, and one of the few women in the list to boot! 1 big point for bzoppa.

Total of five for runstaverun, if you can give me the name of the latter actor and I can verify it.

Yeah, I hate those 2.99999 actors as well.

So one point for crimson117.

Right on all, though there's a different series for the first one that would get you the point, and a different series for the last name.

So four points, without help from IMDB, for spidey_77.

Re: a couple more

The first doesn't count, has to be a major character. If a half dozen episodes count, there's lots of great names out there.

The third name, same deal.

Fourth one, sorry, no dice.

Fifth one works.

So two points so far for crimson117.

Re: a couple more

What's wrong with the fourth one? Voice actors, playing a main character, don't count? The first TV show I listed for him doesn't count since it wasn't really prime time, but why not the other three?

Not a major character on the latter, unfortunately. And a bunch of other shows, like most actors I thought of at lunch, but none lasted more than a season.

Yup!
No reality shows, unfortunately. Oh, wait, a VERSION of themself! Ok, it's fine.
That's one season on the former. Just like we had to cull one person at lunch for only being on a show for one season. 1978-1979 is one year in TV time.

So you're up to six points, runstaverun, seven if you can get that guy's name to me.

An often guessed person, but unfortunately not a regular character on a majority of episodes of more than one season for the third role.
