Originally posted 12/09/2015 04:15PM

And while not every show has a Christmas moment – and not every Christmas episode delivers a miracle – we thought we'd celebrate the season with 15 of our favorites.

Rob Lowe 2020? The Grinder Star Dishes Which Career He Would Have Pursued Beyond Acting If He'd 'Had the Guts'

Originally posted 09/29/2015 12:45PM

Rob Lowe returns to TV in all of his heartthrob glory on Tuesday night as the actor stars alongside Fred Savage in Fox's new comedy The Grinder.

"The show is about a beloved television icon coming to terms with the end of his eight-year hit legal drama ending and realizing that what he really wants is a normal, authentic family life," Lowe tells PEOPLE about his character on the show.

"He decides he's going to join the family business which is practicing law, without actually knowing anything about the actual law."

The premise wasn't a stretch for the former political drama star, who admits to feeling similarly inspired to make a career switch after working on The West Wing.

"I have to be honest, if I had the guts to do it, I would love to after having played Sam Seaborn on The West Wing for so long to take a sabbatical and be in the trenches and have a presidential campaign."

After two years together, Amy Poehler and Nick Kroll have gone their separate ways, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

The news caps off a gloomy summer of one relationship demise after another. But fans of Poehler and Kroll can be comforted in knowing they'll always have these hilarious, raunchy (and therefore NSFW) scenes of them together to look back on.

Kroll appeared on Parks and Recreation as The Douche (née Howard Tuttleman), a potty-mouthed shock-jock who caused Leslie Knope (Poehler) a lot of headaches. The actress reciprocated by guest-starring on his sketch comedy series Kroll Show in 2014.

10 Years Later: Revisiting the Six Feet Under Finale, Plus More of TV's Most Unforgettable Goodbyes

Originally posted 08/21/2015 02:05PM

It's a sad but true fact of life that everything must eventually come to an end – and when it comes to TV shows, some of those endings are much more satisfying than others.

Ten years ago, Six Feet Under set the bar with one of the greatest series finales of recent years: "Everyone's Waiting." In honor of the show's decade-long reign as the standard to which all other finales should be held, we're looking back at some of the greatest finale episodes of all time.

You're going to want to make sure you have plenty of tissues handy (warning: spoilers ahead).

When TV Goes on Holiday: The Hottest Small-Screen Vacation Spots, by the Numbers

Originally posted 08/12/2015 05:00PM

It seems like every time our favorite TV characters take a vacation, they end up in one of three main destinations: Hawaii, Paris or Disney World.

It makes sense that these would be such popular destinations – after all; they're familiar, easy to film in and ripe for sitcom hijinks. And really, who doesn't want to hang with Mickey and Minnie or sunbathe in the tropics or even take a romantic stroll along the Seine?

Since all three of these locations seemed to entice our favorite shows over and over again, we couldn't help but wonder which other exotic destinations are statistically more likely to attract our favorite TV shows. Since we never pass up an excuse to binge watch Friends and Saved by the Bell, we dug through some classic shows from the TV archives and did a little math. You'll notice that some shows managed to rack up some serious frequent flier miles during their runs!
