Today The Simpsons 500th Episode Airs

The Simpsons, regarded by many (including yours truly) as one of the best shows in the history of television, is now in its 23rd season and airs its 500th(!) episode today.

The Holloywood Reporter has a synopsis of the 500th episode:
The Simpsons' 500th episode, "At Long Last Leave," centers on the Simpsons family getting evicted from Springfield and join an off-the-grid community outside of town. But when Homer and Marge try to return to Springfield, their friends give them a hostile welcome. 
Fox has already announced that the show has been renewed for two more seasons, ensuring it will air on television for a record 25 years, longer than any scripted show in history. The Simpsons premiered in 1989 (I saw the the very first show when I was in college) and George H.W. Bush was president of the United States!
