```That's called a 455 by 24 matrix, not  "24 - 255 table".

The following code does what you want, I think:

data={{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,
3,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,6,6},{1,1,
1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,
3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,
1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,
3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,6,6,6,6},{1,1,
1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6,6}};
keepQ=Min[Frequencies[#][[All,1]]]>2&;
keepQ/@data
Select[data,keepQ]

{True,False,True,True,True,False,True}

{{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,
3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{
1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,6,6,6},{1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,
3,3,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6},{
1,1,1,1,1,2,2,2,2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,6,6,6,6}}
