The Cosby Show

New York, get ready for another classic TV marathon on WLNY during a holiday. One of the most beloved families in television history will have you laughing on Presidents' Day, Monday, February 17, when WLNY-TV 10/55 presents The Cosby Show marathon from 9:00am to 9:00pm. This classic sitcom filmed in Brooklyn, New York, stars Bill Cosby as Heathcliff "Cliff" Huxtable and Phylicia Rashad as his wife, Clair Huxtable. The marathon will have all 24 unforgettable episodes from the sitcom's classic first season. The marathon will culminate in primetime with the 1985 "Slumber Party" episode, when Clair is out of town for a seminar and Cliff tries to entertain Rudy's friends during a slumber party, airing at 7:30 pm and the fun filled 1985 "Cliff’s Birthday" episode, when the Huxtable children celebrate Cliff's 50th birthday by presenting things that are older than dad and Cliff goes to extreme measures to find out what the family will give him for a present, airing at 8:30pm. Immediately following the memorable Cosby Show moments, viewers can tune into WLNY News at 9PM.

WLNY's The Cosby Show marathon will also feature the 1985 "Vanessa's New Class" episode, where Vanessa's solar system doesn't compare to the competition at the science fair and she accuses her best friend of getting help from her parents (5:30pm) and the "Clair's Case" episode where Cliff teaches the children the proper way to do their chores and cooks strange foods for dinner, while Clair keeps long hours as she prepares to represent Sondra in court (6:00pm), and the 1985 "Back to the Track, Jack" episode, when Cliff accepts a challenge to compete in a track event for seniors, only after his college rival dares him to participate (7:30pm).
