TV Marathons on Labor Day 2013!

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 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 WLNY-TV in NYC's Brady Bunch Labor Day marathon! It's a full day of the Brady clan in New York from 9am-9pm! If you love The Waltons, Hallmark Channel will have a Holiday movie marathon of that drama from 10am-10pm featuring six TV movies. 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). Moving on, sitcom fans will want to tune into the TV Land Andy Griffith Show marathon on Labor Day from 8am-6pm, followed by a block of original sitcom Hot in Cleveland from 6-9pm, as that sitcom will have its season finale on Wednesday, Sept. 4. We also mentioned that FX will air an all-day marathon of Two and a Half Men on Labor Day beginning at 7am, while new spin-off network FXX launches with a Parks & Recreation Labor Day marathon. ABC Family will air a Melissa & Joey marathon on Labor Day from 12pm-4:30pm, as the season finale airs this Wednesday at 8.
