TV Land to Celebrate Ann B. Davis, Too; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 9, 2014)

TV Land Remembers Ann B. Davis

We now have the third marathon for Ann B. Davis planned. First INSP and MeTV announced plans, now TV Land has joined in to remember "Alice." Join TV Land tomorrow (Saturday, June 7), in celebrating Ann B. Davis, who played loveable housekeeper and friend Alice on The Brady Bunch. Alice was an essential member of the Brady home - shown by the fact that she was the center square in the title sequence! The marathon features some of the most memorable moments with Alice and the Brady family - like when the house turns chaotic after Alice sprains her ankle; the time Alice decides to leave and the kids try to win her back; and when Alice's cousin Emma (played by Davis) fills in while Alice is on vacation and ends up driving the Bradys insane! There's no question that Alice is one of the most devoted and beloved housekeepers in TV Land. Tune in to TV Land on Saturday, June 7 from 6am-6pm ET/PT for 12-hours of Alice-centric episodes!
