BET and Centric Present Sitcoms On Thanksgiving Weekend; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of November 21, 2011)


My Wife & Kids

This Thanksgiving, BET and Centric will each present sitcoms all weekend long! It's non-stop sitcoms with your family! Let's start with Centric, they will air a Proud Family marathon on Thanksgiving Day from 9am-6am. And then the day after, Centric will present a marathon of Sister, Sister from 9am-6am. And finally, Centric invites you to spend the weekend with Steve Harvey on his sitcom The Steve Harvey Show -- Saturday from 6am-10:30pm and Sunday from 9am-8pm.
Sister network BET has more sitcoms if you want to catch some more sitcoms! BET will air a My Wife & Kids marathon on Thanksgiving Day from 8am-5pm, followed by a marathon of its original sitcom Read Between the Lines (starring Malcolm Jamal-Warner, Tracee Ellis Ross and Anna Maria Horsford) from 5pm-12am. You can catch all 14 episodes that would have aired to date. The sitcom airs regularly Tuesdays at 10pm. However, a special two-part episode will premiere on a special night & time, Sunday, Nov. 27 at 11pm. Don't miss it! Back to the marathons, BET will present a marathon of The Parkers the very next day on Friday from 8am-12am. On Saturday, spend the day with Chris on Everybody Hates Chris from 9am-7pm. And finally on Sunday, BET will air a a short marathon of Bernie Mac from 10am-3pm. Later that day they will air the 2011 Soul Train Awards from 8-11pm, leading into the special two-part episode of Read Between the Lines at 11pm. Another marathon of the show follows from 12am-6am, too.
As always, stay with us for more on BET and Centric. I was hoping a marathon of The Cosby Show would be on Centric, but guess not.
