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!

Watch: Estelle Getty Channels Alicia Silverstone in a Golden Girls Parody of Clueless

Originally posted 07/20/2015 05:00PM

[YOUTUBE "EJE9tr7GR3g"] It's been fun looking back on the 20th anniversary of the teen classic Clueless, which first hit theaters on July 21, 1995. But one of the more surprising bits of Clueless nostalgia to surface actually comes from 1996, from the first MTV Movie Awards to air after the film's release.

Even die-hard Golden Girls fans may have forgotten that the awards show featured a Clueless parody featuring Estelle Getty as Cher, Betty White as Dionne and Rue McClanahan as a fusion of Tai and Amber.

Betty White can't remember what she wore to her first Emmys, but she has a good excuse – it was 63 years ago!

"I haven't a clue," White tells PEOPLE of her first time at the ceremony in 1951. "I'm sorry. I should, but I don't have a clue."

But the Hot in Cleveland star – who is nominated this year for hosting Betty White's Off Their Rockers on Lifetime – has no trouble recalling her win for most outstanding female personality, a Los Angeles regional award she won in 1952.

July 30 is National Cheesecake Day, a holiday so decadent you may need to call in reinforcements.

Yes, it's the special day dedicated to the dessert that everyone seems to adore, including Britney Spears. And yet, perhaps the biggest cheesecake connoisseurs were our beloved '80s TV matriarchs, The Golden Girls. Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia forked through more creamy ricotta creations than almost any other group on television, ever. Plain, fruit, chocolate – there was no type of cheesecake that went overlooked by these roomies.
