TV Land's Mother's Day Golden Girls Marathon; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of May 12, 2014)

The Golden Girls

Mama Mia, Sophia! Trying to figure out how to spend your Mother's Day? Well, TV Land has made that decision a little bit easier for you! TV Land's The Golden Girls Mother's Day marathon pays tribute to the mother of all mothers, Sophia Petrillo (played by Estelle Getty), the very entertaining but tough-love mom to Dorothy (Bea Arthur). Tune in for the Mom-athon event this Sunday, May 11 from 7pm-10pm ET/PT. TV Land kicks off The Golden Girls marathon fittingly with "Mother's Day," an episode where the girls reminisce about past Mother's Days as they wait for phone calls from their children. In another episode entitled "Two Rode Together," Dorothy (Bea Arthur) wants to spend some "quality" time with Sophia (Getty) so she takes her away for the weekend to Disney World. However, her attempts fail when a fed up Sophia storms out. Meanwhile, Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) try their hand at writing children's stories. The marathon continues with "An Illegitimate Concern," where Dorothy and Sophia enter a mother-daughter pageant at Shady Pines as Sonny & Cher. Plus, stick around because there will be many more fan favorites that salute Sophia Petrillo. So, curl up on the couch with your mom and celebrate Mother's day with TV Land!
