TV One's 2012 Christmas Episodes Sitcom Marathon; FEARnet's Comedy Series Holliston Books Christmas Special

It is 12/12/12, and usually in December when we think of 12 we think of 12 days of Christmas. We're not quite at 12 days yet, but we're close! TV One is getting into the holiday spirit with laughs again! They will celebrate the holidays with two Christmas marathons featuring holiday episodes of sitcoms! First up on Saturday, Dec. 22, wake up early to watch a full day of sitcom Christmas episodes beginning at 6am through 8pm. Airing will be The Jeffersons from 6-8am, followed by more Sherman Hemsley, but this time in Amen from 8am-10:30am. Then we get even more The Jeffersons from 10:30am-1pm, followed by Eve from 1-2pm, and A Different World from 2pm-4:30pm. Then it's Living Single from 4:30pm-6pm and Martin from 6-8pm to close the marathon out. And if you missed any of the marathon, they will encore some of it in the late night from 12-6am with Martin from 12-2am, Living Single from 2am-3:30am and A Different World from 3:30am-6am.
But wait, that's not all! You'll have another chance on Christmas Day itself - Tuesday, December 25 - from 6am-8pm to watch these holiday episodes on Christmas! What a present! A Different World will air first this time from 6-8am, then it's Amen from 8am-10:30am, and The Jeffersons from 10:30am-1pm. In the afternoon, it's Eve from 1-2pm, then A Different World from 2pm-4pm, Living Single from 4pm-5:30pm and Martin from 5:30-8pm. Missing from this list is Good Times, which was quietly removed from TV One recently along with Half & Half. Stay with us for continued updates!



FEARnet's first original television series, Holliston, created by and starring modern genre master Adam Green (Frozen, Hatchet), returns with a brand new one-hour Christmas special and a season 1 marathon on Tuesday, December 18 to whet viewers' appetites for the premiere of season 2 in June 2013. Catch up on all the Holliston hijinks with the complete season 1 Holliston marathon at 3:30pm ET/12:30pm PT. Tune in as aspiring horror filmmakers Adam and Joe (Joe Lynch) - along with Joe's girlfriend, Laura (Laura Ortiz) and Adam's childhood sweetheart, Corri (Corri English) - deal with life, love, and Lance Rockett (Dee Snider), while having run-ins with genre legends Kane Hodder, Tony Todd and John Landis, and receiving sincere-yet-terrible advice from GWAR's Oderus Urungus, who lives in Adam's closet.

Directly following the marathon at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Tuesdy, Dec. 18, the most wonderful time of the year quickly turns into "Silent Night, Deadly Night," when a blizzard strikes the town of Holliston, trapping Adam, Joe, Corri and Laura inside with no power in the Holliston Christmas Special. To make matters worse, a crazed serial killer has just escaped and is said to be lurking somewhere in the area. Fearing for their lives and having nothing but flashbacks to entertain them, the gang reminisces about the moments in their past that brought them all together. Derek Mears (Friday the 13th) guest stars.
