TV Marathons on 2011 Labor Day Weekend

Happy Labor Day! It's a holiday, so of course you turn to SitcomsOnline to see what marathons are on TV! Most of you are probably outdoors this last "unofficial" weekend of summer with your family & friends, but for those of you who are in need of some TV marathons...you've come to the right place as usual!

We have mentioned many of these already, but it's a good reminder if you have forgotten! First, we will cover the sitcom stunts, most we have covered already--so you have a reminder. As we first reported, How I Met Your Mother launch marathon will run all day today on FX from 12pm-12am! We also mentioned that TBS will have a The Office marathon from 4pm-8pm this afternoon/evening. MTV2 will have a Martin marathon from 3:30pm-8pm. Tonight of course is the launch of the week-long Friends marathon on Nick at Nite that we already mentioned, starts at 8pm tonight! Classic sitcom fans will want to tune into THIS tv for the movie Munster Go Home at 3:30pm and then at midnight for McHale's Navy Joins the Air Force based on two classic sitcoms (The Munsters and McHale's Navy). Other notable sitcom marathons on this day are the regular Monday night The Golden Girls marathon on WE tv from 8pm-1am and Hallmark Channel's regular Frasier marathon from 9pm-12am.

For non-sitcoms, Centric has an all-day The A-Team marathon from 11am-12am, so don't be a fool and miss this one!
