Merry Christmas! Our Gift to You Is Rare Sitcoms Update Not on Cable But Airing on Locals

Merry Christmas to all from all of us here at SitcomsOnline! We hope you and your families are having a wonderful holiday season! I hope you saw our TV marathon report yesterday, so you don't miss any of the marathons if you plan on watching television. Thanks for taking time out on this day to visit SitcomsOnline! Local stations are also doing marathons today! In Los Angeles, CA, on KDOC we get a marathon of America's Funniest Home Videos. But the best one are in Hartford, CT and Indianapolis, IN! In Hartford, we get holiday episodes of classic sitcoms on WTXX from 9am-3pm: Petticoat Junction and Beverly Hillbillies in the 9am hour, then a break until 11am, then we get The Honeymooners, The Odd Couple, Laverne & Shirley, Family Affair, Happy Days, The Brady Bunch, Mork & Mindy and Family Ties! Also, in Indianapolis, IN on WTTV/WTTK we have a Christmas marathon from 9am-3pm! Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, Lucy Show, The Brady Bunch, and Family Ties. So I bet this makes you all wonder, are many of these series on locally elsewhere?
So, now as a gift, we will let you know where the rare sitcoms not airing on cable are airing these days...
Many sitcoms are not on cable. So there are so many sitcoms out there that are NOT on TV Land, WGN America, Nick at Nite, TBS, ABC Family, Lifetime, Spike TV, AmericanLife, WE tv, TV One, FX, etc. We will give you some of them today!
