4th of July Marathons; TV Land Summer Cocktail Marathons Extended; Vacation Note

Well tomorrow is the 4th of July and if you for some reason want to spend it indoors rather than outdoors, you'll have a lot of marathon choices! Like all major holidays, we give our readers a taste of what the marathons are for the holiday. Here are among the highlights and marathons of note:
As we mentioned late last week, Boomerang will have a 3 1/2 day marathon featuring every single episode of The Flintstones! That is clearly the best choice. A close second is Sci-Fi Channel's Twilight Zone two-day event that started today and will run all day and night on July 4. Other notables:
Cartoon Network: Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends Marathon starting at 6am, Twenty-nine episodes and the movies "House of Bloo" and "Good Wilt Hunting" air. First up:, Eduardo breaks the "no dogs in the house" rule.
USA Network: Monk Marathon starting at 6am, A 22-hour block of the cautious crime solver begins with Monk looking for Sharona's replacement and running into Natalie, who asks him to investigate a break-in at her house, where she lives with daughter Julie.
TNT: Law & Order Marathon starting at 8am, a 15-episode block of the police procedural. In the first hour, "black rage" is used as a defense in the case of a Wall Street broker (Courtney B. Vance) who's accused of killing his mentor.
FX: Married...with Children/King of the Hill Marathon, starting at 8am, Thirty-two episodes of the two Fox comedies. First up: Eight episodes of Married...With Children, beginning with Part 1 of a 1991 two-parter in which the Bundys
break down en route to L.A., and a prospector (John Byner) trades his gold mine for their car.
BET: Wayans Bros. Marathon starting at 9am, an 18-episode block of the sitcom, a witty look at the misadventures of fast-talking siblings and their moneymaking schemes.
Bravo: Project Runway marathon starting at 10am, twelve third-season episodes of the reality series air in succession. In the first episode, 15 blossoming designers plunge into their first challenge when they
must create a garment using only materials found in their apartments.
TBS: House of Payne marathon starting at 5pm, a 10-episode block of the sitcom opens with young Malik being bullied at school. It turns out his tormentor is a girl with a blustery foster mother (creator and executive producer Tyler Perry, in drag). Perry also directed the episode.
G4: Cheaters marathon starting at 9am
Spike TV: Rocky movies marathon from 9am-6pm followed by CSI from 6pm-1am.
TV Land: The Jeffersons Go to Hawaii, the four-part episode airs from 8-10pm.
Comedy Central: Following movies from 9am-7pm, a mini-thons of Scrubs, South Park and 'Lil Bush will air.

TV Land will extend the Summer Cocktail Marathons, which air weeknights from 10pm-4am, until August 3. It was slated to end after July 20, but now it has been extended by another two weeks. So now you can enjoy more Cosby Show, Three's Company, and others in a little marathon each week. The regular 10pm-4am schedule will return August 6.

I will be going on vacation after my Thursday blog post. Todd will take over until July 15. I will return to the blog on July 16. I won't be checking e-mail or the boards likely, as I will be out of state. Todd will bring you news and some features that will be done by our review team. Among the features to look for is a special one time rant done by Seth (in addition to Solomon's Weekly Rant) and a handy special report called the DVD Wall of Shame by skees53...find out what TV DVDs you should avoid. We hope you continue to visit.

Preview of my final two days before my vacation: Tomorrow we will preview TV One August and on Thursday I hope to post ION August (if not Todd will do it later on).
