On New Year's Day, we mentioned a lot already, too. But we didn't mention The Andy Griffith Show marathon in Los Angeles on KDOC starting at 10am! Me-TV in Chicago we mentioned will also have an Andy Griffith Show marathon, as that show launches on that station with a marathon from 9am-11pm. We won't repeat the continuation marathons from above that start on New Year's Eve and go into New Year's Day, since we mentioned that above. But the other New Year's Day marathons we mentioned were the launch of The Jeffersons on TV One from 10am-6am. Sanford & Son launches the next night with a 24-hour marathon. TV Land says welcome to "Jan" 1st with a Jan Brady centric marathon of The Brady Bunch from 12pm-6pm! The N welcomes its newest sitcom, What I Like About You, with a big marathon celebration that will last for over a week! SOAPnet will repurpose all of the season two episodes so far of the ABC hit Private Practice from 9am-7pm, as you get ready for all-new episodes on its new night--Thursdays, the following week on ABC. Spike goes with a CSI: NY marathon on New Year's Day, while TNT goes digging for some Bones, USA goes crime watching with Monk, and Bravo welcomes the new year with a resolution for Americans trying to lose weight with a block of The Biggest Loser. Other notables include a Looney Tunes marathon on Cartoon Network (wow, they are airing classic stuff for one day?), South Park on Comedy Central, Iron Chef on Food Network, and American Idol on Fox Reality. And if you missed the Rocky movies on Versus on New Year's Eve, catch them on A&E on Thursday and Friday starting 3pm on Thursday.
Close out 2008 in style! Don't forget to tune in at least for the last few minutes of 2008 as the ball drops in Times Squares. Dick Clark is the way to go on ABC for that. What's your New Year's Resolution? Start thinking!
