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.
