2011 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Marathons; 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards Winners

Today is Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday so there are some TV marathons already underway for those of you have the day off. It's not as many marathons as say New Year's or Christmas, but still we have some notable ones. Probably the sitcom pick is TeenNick's That '70s Show marathon that is all-day today until 10pm. Or perhaps Hallmark Channel's The Golden Girls marathon from 6am-11am and again from 3-6pm? TV Land starts its Hot in Cleveland three-night event at 10pm tonight with a block of episodes, as the season premiere is Wednesday at 10. Drama wise, there is a CSI marathon on Spike TV from 9 to 5; an NCIS marathon until 9pm on USA Network and a Walker Texas Ranger 24-hour marathon on Sleuth. VH-1 has a Saturday Night Live, "Best of Marthon" (featuring Christopher Walken; Mike Meyers; Will Ferrell; Will Ferrell Vol. 2) starting at 2pm.
Centric has a Proud Family marathon that started this morning until 8pm tonight. Boomerang has a Scooby-Doo marathon from 12pm to 7pm. Probably the most disgrace of a marathon on this day is MTV's Jersey Shore marathon leading into a new episode on a special night & time at 9pm. And networks like TV One, TMC, History will actually air movies/specials about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Our friends at TVTango.com have a full list of marathons for you!
