227

We mentioned on SitcomsOnline Digest about 227 now on OWN, but we wanted to give more info...including details on a Christmas marathon. As of December 2, OWN has taken us back to another time with the network premiere of 227. The classic sitcom, starring Marla Gibbs, Jackée Harry and more - airs every weekend this winter, so get cozy and ready to binge on iconic performances and unforgettable laughs. OWN will also air a Christmas Day marathon of 227 from 2pm-3am (and the regular Sunday marathon before that, so it's a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day marathon, technically). 227 generally airs Saturdays 1pm-8pm and Sundays 2pm-3am. Tune in every Saturday and Sunday only on OWN!
