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).
