Happy 4th of July to all of you out there! We hope you are enjoying the day off on our country's birthday! It's time to relax and watch some TV on this holiday! We are known for letting you know what marathons are airing on TV on holidays and we will do the same for this 4th of July as well! So, bring out your beach towel, BBQ some hot dogs, and stay cool indoors and watch some television!

Among the key marathons include a marathon of The Andy Griffith Show on TV Land from 9am-9pm. Locally, we have the third annual I Love Lucy marathon in New York City on WLNY-TV from 9am-5pm.
