Before we let you all go back to your families (or special friends), we want to let you know the marathons on TV you and your family might want to watch during the day and after Thanksgiving dinner. We love TV marathons and you all come here on each holiday to see what marathons are airing, so as always we will do that today, too, of course!
We have told you about many of the sitcom related marathons already in our regular news stories. Our pick of the weekend is the Three's Company marathon today (Thanksgiving Day) from 1pm-1am ET on Antenna TV! Non-stop laughter with episodes featuring all three blondes--Chrissy, Cindy and Terri. TV Land has its annual Overstuffed Weekend with a marathon of The Andy Griffith Show on Thanksgiving Day from 8am-6:30pm. The fun continues all weekend long with a marathon of Hot in Cleveland. Nick at Nite has a Friends marathon that started last night and will run through Sunday night, all-night long. BET and Centric have sitcom marathons today through Sunday. Centric will feature a Proud Family marathon today from 9am-6am, while sister network BET will feature a My Wife & Kids marathon from 8am-6pm. BET then will air a marathon of original sitcom Read Between the Lines from 6pm-1am tonight. On to Friday, BET has The Parkers marathon from 8am-12am, while Centric will present a Sister, Sister marathon from 9am-6am. Then the weekend will feature a Steve Harvey Show marathon on Centric, while BET will have a marathon of Everybody Hates Chris on Saturday and Bernie Mac on Sunday. MTV2 will feature a Martin marathon today from 3pm-9pm. And New York City is lucky to have a marathon again of The Odd Couple today on WPIX from 11am-5pm!
