Not all hits, and interspersed with TV and feature films, but a steady and kind of surprising longevity

I look at it this way: if it ran longer than one full season, it qualifies.  Even if it never set the Nielsens on fire, it still qualifies.  Because, to be perfect and frank, there are a TON of long-running shows out there that managed to survive in spite of being popular with neither the critics nor the audience.  (Looking at you, "Yes, Dear.")

From the other thread:

 

David Boreanaz: Angel (although the character was prevalent on Buffy before the spinoff) and Bones. And maybe not a "hit", but he is now on a third show, SEAL Team.

Good God!  You could practically build an entire network around Telma Hopkins!

For real! I glanced at her filmography, and I didn't even include the shorter-lived programs. All of the ones listed lasted at least two seasons, and she wasn't just a recurring character on any of them. Telma works!
