Remember when Saturday mornings were worth getting up for? While we can’t provide a four-hour block of programming, here’s some retro news you may have missed (or simply want to revisit) from the past week.

Saturday Morning Programming:

Television:

The Simpsons have been renewed for two more seasons! If you’ve never watched The Simpsons, now is a perfect time to start. Assuming seasons 27 and 28 are also 22 episode seasons and each episode runs 22 minutes, it would take you 13,596 minutes, or 226.6 hours, or 9.4 days of doing nothing but watching The Simpsons to catch up on everything. And if you wanted to watch the movie, too? Listen, I already did a lot of math, you figure it out.

CBS has officially greenlit Supergirl.

Movies:

Avengers-Infinity-War
