Hallmark Channel June 2011 Highlights; BET Schedules Chris, Harvey Stunts

The Hallmark Channel has announced its June 2011 schedule and highlights. There is no change to the regular line-up, but there are plenty of stunts. Back on the May 2011 highlights, we gave you details on the Memorial Day weekend marathon. There are now changes to the Monday portion of the three-day stunt. Instead of an assorted series marathon, we will get a Frasier marathon on Memorial Day itself from 3pm-11pm. If that's not all, a two-hour block will air from 9-11am in its normal morning slot (instead of the planned Empty Nest block) leading into the Martha at Home block. Regular airing of The Golden Girls, Cheers and more The Golden Girls will follow from 11pm-5am.
New stunts for June 2011 will have a marathon of The Waltons on Sunday, June 5 from 2pm-10pm. Saturday, June 25 will have an all-day sitcom stunt starting at 6am with two hours of I Love Lucy leading into Empty Nest from 7am-11am. The Golden Girls will follow from 11am-2pm, with Frasier airing from 2pm-5pm. And if you want more The Golden Girls, you got it from 5pm-8pm leading into a primetime delight of Frasier from 8pm-11pm. Cheers will also get in on the act with a stunt from 11pm-2am leading to the overnight Empty Nest from 2am-5am.
Finally, we have a preview of the first week of July, which will feature a three-day sitcom event for the Fourth of July weekend! It's the same sitcom stunt schedule we mentioned above with the same times and shows. This is for Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3. What will air on Monday, July 4? We'll let you know in a few weeks in our July 2011 highlights, because well that is part of the July line-up. So stay with us for that!

BET has some sitcom stunts in the works for us sitcom fans! A week-long Everybody Hates Chris marathon is coming in June! The marathon airs during graduation week from Monday, June 13 through Friday, June 17 from 1pm-6pm each afternoon! The sitcom regularly airs weekdays in the 8am hour. And in time for Father's Day, BET will air a a Father's Day stunt with episodes from The Steve Harvey Show on Saturday, June 18 from 12pm-6pm as we get ready for Father's Day the next day! This sitcom regularly airs on sister network Centric every weekday.
Elsewhere, for Memorial Day (May 30), they will have a marathon of The Game from 8am-7:30pm showcasing the second half season three and all 13 episodes from the fourth season! This is a good way to catch-up, if you missed anything this season. On Saturday, June 4, catch the complete fourth season of Girlfriends in a 12-hour block from 8am-8pm with all 24 episodes from that season!
