Antenna TV's Father's Day Fest With Father Knows Best Marathon; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 4, 2012)


Father Knows Best
This Father's Day, Antenna TV will honor dad with "Father's Day Fest with Father Knows Best" on Sunday, June 17, 2012 from 7am to midnight ET. Antenna TV, which airs on 61 affiliates across the U.S. reaching 58% of TV households, will celebrate Father's Day with a 17-hour marathon of Father Knows Best. Yep, a 17 hour marathon on the 17th! Some of the classic episodes include "Lesson in Citizenship," "Proud Father," "Father is a Dope," "The Grass Is Greener," "Swiss Family Anderson" and "Jim's Big Surprise." There are no encores, so it's 34 episodes in a row non-stop for 17 hours! The series aired on CBS and then later NBC from 1954-1960 and starred Robert Young as James "Jim" Anderson, Jane Wyatt as Margaret Anderson, Elinor Donahue as Betty "Princess" Anderson, Billy Gray as James "Bud" Anderson and Lauren Chapin as Kathy "Kitten" Anderson. The series was set in the typical Midwestern community of Springfield, where Jim Anderson was an agent for the General Insurance Company. Every evening he would come home from work, take off his sport jacket, put on his comfortable sweater, and deal with the everyday problems of a growing family. The series regularly airs on Antenna TV Friday nights at 7:00pm & 7:30pm and Sunday mornings at 7:00am & 7:30am.
