TV Marathons on Labor Day 2012!

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...as usual, you've come to the right place!

We have mentioned many of these already, but it's a good reminder if you have forgotten! First, we just recently mentioned about GMC's "Labor" Day marathon! It's a full day of your favorite TV moms in their finest hour, or two, or 13... whatever it takes! If you love babies, or even puppies, you'll want to tune in for GMC's 13 Hours of Labor Day Marathon beginning at 10am ET with Family Ties, then The Waltons, Judging Amy, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and many episodes of 7th Heaven. Moving on, sitcom fans will want to tune into the TV One Martin marathon on Labor Day from 7am-9pm. TV Land will air an all-day M*A*S*H marathon from 8am-6pm, followed by a block of original sitcom The Exes from 6-9pm, as that sitcom will have its season finale on Wednesday, Sept. 5. We also mentioned that Style will air an all-day marathon of Gossip Girl on Labor Day.

For stuff we have not mentioned yet: MTV2 will showcase two marathons, first up is the Boy Meets World marathon from 10am-4pm, then it's alright because we're Saved by the Bell with a marathon of that series from 4pm-10pm. It's a brand new life around the bend, has TV Guide Network will have a Who's the Boss? marathon from 3pm-7pm. Labor Day means Jerry Lewis and Antenna TV salutes his slapstick with a full day of Jerry Lewis' classic comedies on Labor Day beginning at 5am ET and lasting 24-hours. Airing will be Three on a Couch (1966), The Big Mouth (1967), Don't Raise the Bridge, Lower the River (1968) and Hook, Line and Sinker (1969). BET will present a day with The Parkers with a Labor Day marathon from 8am-3pm. Sister network Centric has an all-day movie marathon from 9am-4am. CMT will give us many laughs with a Reba marathon from 12pm-8pm, while FX will share laughs with us by airing a Two and a Half Men Labor Day marathon from 12pm-12am. ABC Family has its Switched at Birth catch-up marathon from 7am-9pm leading into the summer finale at 9pm, as we mentioned before. INSP Network has a "Labor Day Refresh" marathon featuring Waltons starting at 12pm. We have some more The Waltons, but the Walton movies will air on Hallmark Channel from 4pm-10pm. Looking for game shows? GSN has a marathon of Family Feudfrom 6:30pm-12am tonight.
Other marathons of note on Labor Day are the Buffy the Vampire marathon on Chiller from 6am-6am, Psych marathon on Cloo from 6am-6am, ION Television has a Criminal Minds marathon from 7pm-1am. TNT will have a Rizzoli & Isles marathon from 11am-8pm, USA Network has a NCIS marathon from 7am-7pm, A&E has a Storage Wars marathon from 8am-9pm and if you're looking for sports, you might want to check out NBA TV's classic NBA games marathon from 8am-6am.
