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 NY metro area will be close to 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 some good TV marathons like Saved by the Bell? It's certainly all right! So bring out your lawn chair, throw some burgers on the BBQ, and watch some television!

We also told you about the Andy Griffith Show marathon on TV Land from 10:30am-2pm. We also mentioned a drama marathon of The Waltons starting at noon on INSP! Other cool sitcom marathons on this day is MTV2's Saved by the Bell marathon from 12pm-8pm! TV One has a marathon of Martin marathon from 11am-5am, but technically that is every Monday anyway.
