On Monday January 15 in honor of the Martin Luther King Holiday, TV One presents a "Moving Movie Marathon" with movies beginning at 8am that may move you to action, move you to tears, or just move you to think. And On Saturday January 27, it's all about Anthony Anderson as TV One airs a marathon of his sitcom All About the Andersons in which all 16 episodes produced will air beginning at 12 Noon.
There are other specials, but they are about original programming such as Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes? week (week of Jan. 29) counting down to the finale on Feb. 3.
