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!

Don't Panic: Marge and Homer Simpson's Separation Will Be Temporary, Showrunner Says

Originally posted 06/12/2015 09:35AM

Love is not dead after all.

When Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told Variety that Marge and Homer Simpson would legally separate in the 27th season premiere and that Homer would fall in love with his pharmacist – voiced by Lena Dunham – the fandom basically had a meltdown.

Bart was not too pleased by the news, either – the Simpsons' official Twitter posted a photo after the news went wide of Bart writing "Homer and Marge are not breaking up" on the chalkboard from the show's credits.
