Memorial Day 2009 Marathons

Happy Memorial Day! Today unofficially marks the first day of summer. As we celebrate the day for our troops past and present, let's honor them and watch some good TV as well. So if you're not having fun in the sun, have some fun indoors with some television marathons!
We told you about Sci-Fi Channel's all-day Land of the Lost marathon from 8am-4am, but there are way more marathons than that! If you want more drama, TNT has a Bones marathon from 12pm-9pm, while we get a Law & Order: SVU marathon on USA Network from 6am-5pm. Spike TV also goes with crime with CSI: NY from 9am-6pm. Get addicted to Beverly Hills, 90210 (the original!) with a marathon on SOAPnet from 9am-7pm.
Looking for laughs? WE tv is your best bet with The Golden Girls from 10am-5am, that's a lot of Bea Arthur! TV One also has a good bet with Sanford & Son from 10am-8pm. BET has a marathon of The Game from 9am-6pm. TV Land starts the day off with classic laughs from The Brady Bunch from 9am-12pm. More classic laughs are on Universal HD, if you get that channel. They will air a marathon of Hogan's Heroes from 9am-7pm, how fitting on Memorial Day! Animation wise, Disney XD goes for The Spectacular Spider-Man from 8am-5pm.
Other fun type marathons that are not scripted are WGN America's Around the World for Free from 2pm-8pm; MonsterQuest on History from 8am-8pm; a block of Shatner's Raw Nerve on Bio TV from 8am-11am and again from 2pm-5pm; America's Next Top Model on Oxygen from 11am-11pm; CMT goes for home makeovers and spouse swapping with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Trading Spouses from 2pm-8pm; and what day would it be without a Cops marathon on G4 from 1pm-2am.
Hope you find something to watch if you're indoors! Enjoy the day, and see you tomorrow for actual news!
