For the fourth week of March, the "Location, Location, Location" week in our 2009 inductions into the TV Crossover Hall Of Fame, we're keeping it simple: we're taking a trip to Fernwood, Ohio.

Fernwood is best known as the home of Mary Hartman in her doubly eponymous series, but it also got worked into the title of a spin-off and a sequel - 'Fernwood 2Night' and 'Forever Fernwood', respectively. ('Fernwood 2Night' had its own sequel, 'America 2Night', as well.)

It would be nice to see another series, not necessarily a stripped soap opera, take place in that quirkiest of TV's small towns. At the very least it should be mentioned in other TV series. (Maybe some have, and I just haven't picked up on it.) But no matter, Fernwood has three series to its credit, the number needed for induction, plus an offshoot as well.
