Happy Labor Day! Time for Marathons

Happy Labor Day everyone! As with every major holiday, we will give you the marathon round-up for this day! We'll start with what else? Sitcoms! If you start to stray away from the annual Labor Day Jerry Lewis telethon...turn to laughs. We previously mentioned all these sitcom ones and a few other non-sitcom ones, but we'll remind you of them again! Starting at 10am TBS has a marathon of Tyler Perry's House of Payne episodes through 8pm. TV Land will have an I Love Lucy marathon in the morning followed by the launch of Scrubs with a marathon from 4pm-11pm as the show joins the network's schedule. The same will go for My Wife & Kids, as it will also join the line-up today on ABC Family from 12pm-10pm on ABC Family. Join Martin, Tommy, Gina, Cole, and Pam as TV One presents a Labor Day Martin marathon that will have viewers on the edge of their seats with the Martin Labor Day Cliffhanger marathon from 10am-6am. Head back to the '70s on FX with the That '70s Show marathon on FX from 7am-5:30pm. And finally kids can tune into the kids sitcom Suite Life of Zack & Cody on Disney from 2-9pm.

Non-sitcom marathons include a Monk marathon from 6am-7pm on USA Network. Lifetime will bring us an Army Wives marathon starting at 12 noon with a 10-hour run of the series that starts with Denise bonding with a wounded soldier who leaves his motorcycle to her. Sci-Fi has a Star Trek: The Next Generation marathon from 8am-11pm. Starting at 8am, solve some mysteries with Jessica Fletcher on the Murder, She Wrote marathon on The Hallmark Channel. Whammy up on GSN with the Press Your Luck marathon starting at 9am. It's a CSI battle on A&E and Spike TV with A&E having a CSI: Miami marathon starting at 12 noon and Spike TV having the original CSI starting at 9am. TNT will have a marathon of its mega-hit original The Closer with a marathon that starts at 9am on TNT. And Beverly Hills 90210 will have "The BFF's of 90210" marathon on SOAPnet starting at midnight through midnight tonight.

Other marathons include G4's Cops marathon, TCM's courtroom movies marathon starting at 6am, Travel Channel's Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations marathon starting at 9am, Food Network's Unwrapped stunt starting at 12 noon, National Geographic Channel's Dog Whisperer marathon also at noon, Bravo has a Project Runway marathon at 3pm, MTV has yet another America's Next Top Model marathon, and Discovery Channel will get into dirty jobs with a Dirty Jobs marathon from 9am-11pm.
I'm sure there are more, but these are the notables ones, we think.

Enjoy the day and see you tomorrow as we get back into the news!
