The Roloffs now have bragging rights that no other group of relatives on reality television can match.
We mean this both literally and officially.
On Monday, Matt Roloff surprised Instagram followers by sharing two very sweet photos on his official social media account, both of which were accompanied by a caption that explained an impressive family achievement.
We’ll go ahead and let Matt explain on his loved ones’ behalf:
“The Roloff family’s very exciting news to share with you all… We have – along with all of YOU – made history,” he wrote to open this caption, adding in more detail:
“We’ve been awarded by the Guinness Book of World Records for the most family-focused reality television shows in the history of television!!
“We couldn’t have done it without all of you.
“If you have been a fan for a while, help us share the exciting news by sharing this photo on social media and mentioning how long you have been watching #LPBW.
“We appreciate you guys! @mattroloff @rolofffarms #littlepeoplebigworld #theroloffs #therolofffamily #worldrecord.”
We had no idea this even was a record one could achieve.
But Little People, Big World has been on the air since 2005.
As you can maybe see in the photo above, the series hit the 298-episode mark in January, which was apparently the figure needed to propel the Roloffs to the top.
For comparison’s sake:
Keeping Up with the Kardashians has aired 214 episodes, while 19 and Counting may have threatened this figure if TLC had not canceled the series in the wake of that Josh Duggar molestation scandal.
At the time of its axing, that family-based program had aired 227 installments.
This news comes at an interesting time for the show and for the family as a whole.
There’s been chatter among fans regarding the series’ future, based on Matt’s bombshell news that he’s moving to Arizona.
It’s unclear at the moment if this will have any impact on TLC renewing Little People, Big World for a new season.
The past few episodes of the show have also focused more than ever on tension between Matt and Amy, both of whom seem sick of working so closely together and definitely sick of living so close to each other.
This tension has been heightened of late because both Matt and Amy are involved in serious romantic relationships.
What might happen to the series if Matt marries Caryn Chandler and/or Amy marries Chris Marek?
Again, we don’t know.
But as you can see by the comparisons we made above, Little People, Big World is not in any danger of losing this record any time soon.
Its flown past the 300-episode milestone at this point and, even if it ends after this season, no other family-oriented reality show appears to be close.
So… congratulations to the Roloffs.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching your adventures over the years and we hope there are many more to come in the years ahead.

Last night’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation began with a bit of a cliffhanger resolution.
The previous week’s installment ended with Ronnie’s baby mama, Jen Harley, arriving at the South Beach house, the threat of Mke ruining her visit with a well-timed French Fry revelation looming like a dark cloud.
These days, Ronnie and Jen are broken up following a seriously ugly tiff that played out on social media.
But during his time in Miami, they were still trying to make things work, largely for the sake of their then-unborn daughter.
Of course, their efforts were complicated by the fact that Ronnie cheated with the notorious French Fry during one of his first nights of vacation.
Further complicating the situation was the Situation, who made no secret of the fact that he was enjoying watching Ronnie sweat.
In all likelihood, Mike wouldn’t have sunk so low as to intentionally torpedo Ronnie’s relationship, but minutes into her visit, Jen did something truly astonishing.
Demonstrating all the social graces of a more vindictive George Costanza, Jen overstepped her bounds by referring to Mike as “the Incarceration.”
The comment astonished housemates and viewers alike.
For one thing – this woman needs to learn how to read the room.
You can’t meet a long-established group of friends for the first time and just assume it’s cool to start roasting the low man on totem pole, especially about something that serious.
This wasn’t some “haha, I heard you snore and your socks smell”-type stuff.
No, this was Jen poking fun at the fact that Mike is facing hard time in a federal prison.
It’s the sort of thing the Sitch is probably capable of laughing off when it one of his housemates doing the roasting, but not when it’s coming from a stranger he JUST met.
Not surprisingly, Mike responded with a subtle French Fry reference.
For once in his life, the man showed an admirable amount of restraint, as we doubt anyone would’ve blamed if he had just gone ahead and called Ronnie out for cheating in that moment.
Fortunately for Ronnie’s sake, the situation – and the Situation – didn’t go any further.
Speaking of the famed I’m F–ked Foundation – whose membership seems to grow by the week – last night it was Vinny’s turn to disrespect his relationship and then rat himself out.
To be fair, Vin’s infraction really wasn’t that bad:
He picked up a stripper as a joke, and it seems he immediately felt bad about it.
He then rang up his girl on the duck phone in order to confess, leading to a serious roasting from Pauly D.
“Don’t ever call your girl drunk,” Pauly remarked.
And that wasn’t the only quotable line to emerge from Vin’s flirtation with disaster.
“It’s hard being a horny guy, girls will never understand it,” said Vinny.
“It’s not the same as being a horny girl. I don’t wanna hear it.”
We’ll leave it to y’all to debate the truth behind the Keto Guido’s remarks.
But there’s one thing we can all agree on – Vin’s mom was just a tad too forgiving of his strip club behavior, right?
Hopefully next week, the ladies will get into some shenanigans so they can get a real storyline of their own.
In the meantime, watch Jersey Shore online for more from reality TV’s favorite dysfunctional family.
With the Royal Wedding date swiftly approaching, excitement continues to mount for fans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Markle’s family, in the mean time, continues to make it clear why none of them — save her mother — were invited.
But this time, it’s the bride-to-be’s sister blasting the royal family for something kind of major. Does she have a point?
As a huge gesture, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have invited the serfs — sorry, the common non-royal people — to attend the wedding from a respectable distance.
But these guests, who will not actually be entering the chapel where the ceremony will take place, have been advised to bring their own food for a picnic lunch … as they won’t even have the option of buying food.
Samantha Markle couldn’t see that and not respond with a tweet.
#Royalwedding [golden wedding ring emoji], instead of shuffling homeless people to the outskirts of Windsor, there should be a tented area with steak dinners, music, job corps, and housing representatives, set up to improve their lives.”
(The 1,200 guests were selected from various charities that the royal couple supports)
Samantha continues her tweet, saying:
“Homeless people are human. Treat them with dignity. Namaste”
Namaste is a traditional Indian greeting often used in the West during yoga.
Samantha followed up that tweet with another, in which she expresses further outrage … allegedly on behalf of these guests.
“Wow do they get sent to dungeons if their children get grouchy and express that they’re hungry with no catering?”
That’s … not something that’s been within the power of the British Royal Family for generations.
“Bring your own picnic basket? Really?”
She compares this wedding to other events, and may be throwing a little shade at Meghan’s career.
“Even low-budget film sets have roach coaches selling burgers and taquitos.”
While the term roach coach is a little much, it’s worth noting that only because of decades of hard-fought union battles are actors and others who work on set entitled to craft services.
In an op-ed in The Guardian that Samantha Markle shared, the writer considers it tacky and hypocritical for the royal family to invite these guests and not feed them.
That opinion piece likens inviting these guests to calling in a bunch of “TV extras” for the wedding ceremony.
Others have voiced similar criticisms, comparing these 1,200 spectators to “props” and calling the invitations themselves and empty gesture.
It’s easy to see where these critics are coming from — after all, you have to think a lot of yourself to consider that allowing others to glimpse you getting married is a “gift.”
That said, this is a royal wedding. Of course people are excited to be invited to attend a once-in-a-lifetime event.
Now, Meghan Markle’s estranged sister has had a lot to say in recent months.
Samantha Markle has been exposed as a lying opportunist by her own ex-husband.
As people watch her go off on Meghan as she approaches her wedding day, it’s easy to understand why her name wasn’t on the guest list.
At the same time, it’s difficult for many to imagine why she won’t give her own sister a moment’s peace.
However, others can understand why she would be so outspoken.
Especially if she could potentially profit from the media coverage.
Samantha Markle has since responded to headlines referring to her “shading” Meghan, writing:
“The world has gone mad and it’s quite comical that the new word for the ‘truth’ is
She displays a fundamental misunderstanding. Shade is insulting someone indirectly; it is akin to a backhanded compliment or a subtle jab.
Tea is the word for “truth.” Just so that we’re clear.

The feud between Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell has been simmering for several years, but only in the last few months has it truly erupted.
As is so often the case, things really got bad after Farrah ran her mouth in one of her signature semi-coherent tirades.
Farrah expressed her unfounded belief that Catelynn is on drugs and that her husband, Tyler Baltierra, is gay.
It didn't come out of nowhere, obviously, but the rant left many fans wondering just what Catelynn and Tyler did to make Farrah so very mad.
Now, it looks like we're finally getting some background information on what's shaping up to be one of the great Teen Mom fueds of all time!
