Memorial Day 2011 TV Marathons Includes Wayans Bros. on MTV2, Batman on The Hub and More!

Happy Memorial Day! As we pay tribute to our troops every year on this day, let's have some fun as well watching TV marathons on the tube on this day off! If you're not going outside in the heat (the East coast has 90 degrees today), then there are plenty of TV options for you on this day! Are you headed to the shore or would you rather watch Jersey Shore (good god we hope not!)? So bring out your lawn chair, throw some burgers on the BBQ, and watch some television!
Among the marathons today are the marathons we have previously mentioned, such as the Frasier marathon on Hallmark Channel from 3pm-11pm. We also told you about the Martin marathon on TV One from 11am-8pm, but also MTV2 will showcase the sitcom with a marathon from 4pm-10pm. If that's not all, MTV2 has acquired the rights to The Wayans Bros. and will air a marathon of the '90s sitcom from 10pm-3am! TV Land has a marathon of M*A*S*H, which is probably the most appropriate TV marathon on the day from 8pm-6am tonight. BET has a marathon of The Game once again on this Memorial Day starting at 8am through 7:30pm. ION and A&E just love Criminal Minds and both will have a marathon of the drama, with A&E airing it from 7am-10pm and ION from 3pm-3am.

Other marathons include a marathon of the classic '60s Batman on The Hub from 7am-6pm, an Arrested Development marathon on IFC from 8am-6pm, and TV Guide Channel can't get enough of Charlie Sheen and will air a Spin City marathon starting at 12 noon. And if that's not enough Charlie Sheen for you, FX will showcase Two and a Half Men with a marathon from 12pm-12am. Watch the short-lived series My So-Called Life with a marathon on Sundance Channel from 1pm-6pm, while on TBS you can watch the long-running series Seinfeld with a marathon starting at 4:30pm. Showoff your blue with The Smurfs marathon on Boomerang from 9am-12am and be proud to be an American by watching The Proud Family marathon on Centric from 9am-5pm. E! will have a Sex and the City marathon from 7:30am-6pm, and finally Oxygen will have Roseanne and Living Single marathons starting at 8am.

If you like movies on TV, watch The Karate Kid trilogy on Encore starting at 2pm! Or if you like the same-old marathons, then watch the NCIS marathon on USA Network, Law & Order marathon on TNT and the stupid Jersey Shore marathon on MTV. Non-marathon wise, watch the new Antenna TV line-up starting today with the additions of Burns & Allen and Mad About You joining today with more classics like Soap joining next weekend!
For the full times of these marathons and much more marathons we didn't cover (like Band of Brothers on Spike and Hoarders on A&E), check out the full list from our pals at TV Tango!
