'The Simpsons': 500th episode set to air Feb. 19


We've known for a while that the milestone 500th episode of "The Simpsons" would come somewhere early in 2012, but FOX has now nailed down a date for the episode: Sunday, Feb. 19. The episode is called "At Long Last Leave," and it involves the Simpsons being evicted from Springfield and taking up residence with a group of people who live off the grid outside town.
