So what Lone Survivor Shows can you name where only one of the cast is still alive.

We of course were talking about Mary Tyler Moore this weekend with lone survivor Betty White



And you have Different Strokes with Lone survivor Todd Bridges. (Don't worry, Janet Jackson is still alive she was a guest star.)



And of course Tina Louise from Gilligan's Island




So what other lone survivor stars can you name?

1. I'll bet "Little Ricky" is the sole survivor of "I Love Lucy"

but I couldn't prove it.

3. You are correct

 

Keith Thibodeaux (born December 1, 1950), also known as Richard Keith, is an American former child actor and musician, best known for playing Little Ricky on the television sitcoms I Love Lucy and The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour. ... He is the last living regular appearing cast member from I Love Lucy.

2. MTM is wrong. John Amos who played Gordy the weatherman is still alive.

5. I don't think he was considered a "regular"...

He fell into the same category of "recurring character" as people like Igor or Nurse Kellye in M*A*S*H, who would show up in several episodes a season, but not a majority of them. If you included them as regulars, then of course Lisa Gerritsen (Bess, Phyllis's daughter) would also still be around.

4. Marla Gibbs from The Jeffersons ... the maid Florence on the show ... everyone else is gone

Fun fact ... Roxie Roker, aka Helen Willis, the wife of the interracial neighbor couple in their building ... was Lenny Kravitz's mom.

7. Except Ted Knight in the 80s and MTM in 2017 all the other

Cast members died between 2019-2021. Hang in there Betty!
I have the closing credits music as a ring tone. Loved that show!

9. Bewitched. Adam-12.

I'm not sure why I'm thinking about this.

The girls who played Tabitha, and Kent McCord are sole survivors.

On second thought, the twins are pretty clearly two survivors. That show had some great regulars, and wonderful recurring characters. Aunt Clara, Uncle Arthur, etc.

But there were only a few main characters in that one.
