'Kotter' & 'Good Times' Return to the Big Apple; 'Full House' Memorial Day Marathon on ABC Family

Happy Memorial Day! Starting tonight, WPIX in New York City will start airing Welcome Back, Kotter 5 nights a week. For this week, Tues-Sat mornings (that's Mon-Fri nights) at 3:00 a.m. replacing one of The Jeffersons' timeslots. The Jeffersons will still air at 2:30 a.m. Cheers will still be in classic TV block at 3:30 a.m., but that will be short lived as Good Times joins the line-up next week and will air at 3:00 a.m., shifting Kotter to 3:30 a.m. WPIX might have some more goodies in store later! We will certainly let you know.

Spend your Memorial Day catching up with the Tanner family from Full House and all of their beloved pets. Get reacquainted with the entire menagerie including Bubba the Turtle, Rocket the Horse, Martin the Fish, Ginger the Chimp, Scruffy the Pig, Shorty the Donkey and of course Comet the Dog.
