The show, which aired for nine seasons from 1989 to 1998, had 215 episodes in which the characters made audiences laugh and cry during their Friday primetime slot. Nearly two decades have passed since the show went off the air, and the stars have moved on with their lives. But what are they up to these days?

We're taking a look back on the beloved sitcom that was a staple in ABC's TGIF lineup to see what the actors who portrayed Urkel, Carl, Eddie, 3J, Waldo, and others have been up to. If you're looking to dip into more nostalgia, find out what the stars of Full House, That '70s Show, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air have been up to as well.

If you're trying to quit, then of course any day is a good day. For some inspiration, we've rounded up this list of celebrities who quit smoking. By now, everyone knows that smoking is terrible for your health and the leading cause of lung cancer. It's no surprise, then, that many celebrities have decided to quit smoking cigarettes. Several famous people have quit smoking, including actors, actresses, models, and even high powered politicians.

Who is the most famous person who quit smoking? Jennifer Aniston tops our list. After the TV and movie star quit smoking in 2012, she said she put on a few pounds, which unfortunately made some people speculate that she was pregnant. Her "Friends" co-star Courteney Cox used hypnosis to quit smoking in the late 1990s. Other famous actresses who quit smoking include Kristen Stewart, Kate Hudson, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

President Barack Obama struggled with giving up cigarettes, but he says he finally quit because he was "scared" of his wife! Actor Matt Damon used hypnosis to quit smoking. The Good Will Hunting star told Jay Leno, "I should have done it years ago. It's amazing - I didn't even want cigarettes any more." His friend and collaborator Ben Affleck also used hypnosis to kick his 2-year smoking habit.

Are you impressed that so many celebrities were able to quit smoking? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

With the show's repertory cast becoming reassuringly familiar to audiences, it's worth exploring past roles of the American Horror Story cast, and where you've seen some of these talented and versatile actors prior to their current foray into the mad and the macabre on this hit FX horror series.

Setting it apart from similar shows of its caliber, is that the AHS creators make a point of casting the crazy American Horror Story characters with big-name stars, to the point that some critics have accused the show, exasperatedly, of "stunt casting." For a show with such a deliciously campy feel, however, casting performers with a strange and various body of work under their belt seems like a no-brainer - but even most actors you recognize are harder to pigeonhole than you might expect.

Below is a list of American Horror Story performers paired with appearances they've made outside of the series - the good, the bad, and the just plain weird. This American Horror Story trivia will keep you guessing!

<![CDATA[The Best College Basketball Programs]]> http://ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-college-basketball-schools The best college basketball programs in the country come from some of the most distinguished universities and colleges in the US. These excellent athletic programs produce some of the basketball's most elite athletes and some of the greatest rivalries in sports, college or otherwise.

Some of these teams, like the Tarheels and the Jayhawks, are perennial contenders in the NCAA Men's Final Four and even NCAA basketball championship game, and other are up and coming programs that could soon rival the best college basketball programs for spots in the NCAA basketball tournament.

What are the best college basketball programs? What college has the best basketball program? What schools have the top basketball programs? There are a lot of answers to these questions that will likely be swayed by fervent fandom, but the point of this list is to compile answers and determine who has the top spot on the list of the best college basketball programs. If you know of a great basketball school that's not on the list yet, make sure to add it and get it in the running for the title of best college basketball program.

And since this is likely a list to be visited while thinking about, or in the throws of, March Madness, be sure to consult these tips for picking NCAA brackets when you're sifting through the up-and-comers trying to decide who will make it to the Sweet 16 and beyond.

<![CDATA[The Biggest Contracts in Baseball History]]> http://ranker.com/list/biggest-contracts-in-baseball-history/ranker-baseball A list of the biggest contracts in baseball history. Baseball players have always been well-compensated in comparison to their peers in other sports. Since 1998, superstar players have been rewarded as such, receiving the astronomical contracts totaling over $100 million. The players at the top of this list are in rare company: they're in the super exclusive $200 million club. Many of the game's top players are well-compensated, especially those who are veterans. Some of the guys on this list are considered some of the greatest baseball players of all time.

At the top of this list is the only man to receive two contracts over $250 million: Alex Rodriguez. Signing an unprecedented $252 million deal with the Texas Rangers before the 2001 season, and re-upping with the Yankees in 2007 for a whopping $275 million, A-Rod is easily the highest paid player in baseball history. Other members of the $200 million club include Robinson Cano, Albert Pujols, Clayton Kershaw, Joey Votto and Prince Fielder. These guys are the cream of the crop at their respective positions and some are waiting for their day to enter the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. 

The many All Stars on this list deserve to have the richest contracts in MLB history. If you consider the timing of their deals, along with their statistical production and age, you'd be hard-pressed to argue with many of the contracts on this list. Of course, there are some guys who are overpaid and some that shouldn't have been so well-compensated, but that's life.

<![CDATA[The Best Thanksgiving Movies]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-thanksgiving-movies/olivia-peterman The best Thanksgiving movies offer a welcome respite for anyone looking to escape the craziness that is the holiday. If you are watching TV on Thanksgiving, it's usually all parades and football, but there are a few films with Turkey Day themes that fit. That's what this list is about: The greatest Thanksgiving films that everyone can enjoy. Some are dramas and some are more family-oriented, but each movie on this list is either about Thanksgiving or contains an iconic Thanksgiving scene or two. Vote for your favorites and add any great Thanksgiving movies you think are missing.

Families who want to watch a good Thanksgiving movie together can always opt for the classic 'Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.' Seeing Peppermint Patty trying to pull together a great holiday feast is always amusing. Other possible family Thanksgiving films include Disney's animated 'Pocahontas' and 'Addams Family Values' (which features a really funny Thanksgiving scene.

Thanksgiving movies aren't nearly as plentiful as oh, say, heartwarming Christmas movies (or Halloween movies for kids for that matter) but there are some options. Some of the best include the always hilarious 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles,' the Jodie Foster-directed 'Home for the Holidays,' ("That was absurd! Let's eat dead bird!") and Woody Allen's 'Hannah and Her Sisters' (definitely one of his best). If you want to go super heavy on the drama, 'The Ice Storm' is a good choice. For historical perspective, Terrence Malick's 2005 drama 'The New World' might be an option.

Whether your personal preferences lie more with the dramatic or with comedies, you've got plenty of choices on this list of the best Thanksgiving movies. Again, this list is far from complete, so be sure to add your favorites too!

It's unfair, but pit bulls seldom garner positive publicity. Ignorance about the breed takes the form of inaccurate myths: "Don't pit bulls have locking jaws? Aren't they just vicious by nature?" The breed has also suffered from the stigma of erroneous media coverage and general misinformation, leading to city-wide bans, pets being torn away from their families, and the deaths of countless innocent dogs. One in four of all animals brought into shelters are pit bulls, and their average euthanasia rate hovers at 93 percent across the board. Pit bull rescues can only save so many.

Something needs to be done to save this breed from its undeserved bad reputation.Thankfully, there have been recent movements to educate people to the truth behind the most common pit bull myths. If given the chance, pit bulls can be very loving companions, and in some communities, they have even become heroes, saving people and their guardians from harm. It's time to strip away preconceptions and show what loving companions these dogs can be. Learn the top myths surrounding pit bulls and why they're untrue, then help debunk them by telling your family, friends, and social media followers the real truth about pit bulls.

<![CDATA[The Best Super Power Beat Down Episodes]]> http://ranker.com/list/best-super-power-beat-down-episodes/ranker-comics Ever wonder who would win in a fight between Batman and Wolverine? How about the likes of Superman and Thor? Or even Gandalf and Darth Vader? The creative minds behind Super Power Beat Down have been wondering that for years, so they decided to finally do something about it. Produced by Bat In the Sun Productions, each episode brings the fans live-action battle sequences of familiar characters (and even a race between our favorite Batmobiles) and the winner is actually voted on by fans around the world. So, there's no denying the authenticity of the battle.

Bat In the Sun Productions is run by the father/son duo Sean and Aaron Schoenke. Aaron, who directs all the episodes, as well as starring as Nightwing in one of them, got the idea for the webseries from being on the SpikeTV show Deadliest Warrior. "That show was about taking different cultures and making them fight based on comparing tactics and stuff like that," Aaron said in an interview with Den of Geek. "You know, being a superhero fan and I'm a big sports fan - you're always comparing who's better, Tom Brady to Joe Montana - so it's always fun to compare and I just thought to have a few superheroes go at it or whatever fictional characters."

We have for you all the Super Power Beat Down episodes. Do you think this is how these battles would've gone down if... you know... the characters were real? Make sure to vote up all your favorite episodes, and cast your votes for upcoming episodes on their website

<![CDATA[The Hottest Celebrity Lumbersexuals]]> http://ranker.com/list/hottest-celebrity-lumbersexuals/brooke-wilson First, there was the metrosexual. Then, the ubersexual. And now? The lumbersexual: a burly breed of man that is more into looking like a rugged outdoorsman than a cover model. Think flannel, well-oiled hiking boots, and the best smart phone nature apps that money can buy. Sort of like if a hipster, a lumberjack, and a bear had a baby. A beard, though not technically required, helps complete the look. This list of celebrity lumbersexuals rounds up the best examples of woodsy hotness.

These manly, yet meticulously groomed men have achieved the perfect balance of robust and refined. And their outdoorsy style and pocket full of high-end pocket knives keeps them ready for whatever life brings them, whether it’s a weeklong hiking trip through the rough wilderness or a flash sale at REI.

Who is the hottest celebrity lumbersexual? You decide. In this battle for manly supremacy, we all win.

<![CDATA[The Worst Athletes of 2014]]> http://ranker.com/list/worst-athletes-2014/ranker-sports Sometimes it's just not your year. The professional athletes on this list had a rough 2014 season, whether on the court or the field. Some of these failed sports stars were on bad teams, some were coming back from injuries, and others were just struggling to find their role on a new team. Of course, there were also a few famous athletes who had no excuse, and are just perennially awful. Which athletes performed the worst in 2014? 

We're putting it to a vote to see which one of these NBA, NFL, and MLB stars was the worst athlete of 2014. From basketball stars who couldn't find their shot (or play defense), to baseball's worst pitchers who had a rough season on the mound, these guys just couldn't get the job done. Don't worry, though - most are still owed millions on their contracts!

Maybe these athletes can get their game together for next season, but 2014 just wasn't their all-star year. Hopefully they (and you!) will take a look at this list of the best athletes of 2014 and take notes to improve their games.
