2019 Christmas Eve and Christmas Day TV Marathons & Movies

Welcome to a special Christmas marathon style edition of the News Blog! That means we will recap all of the holiday episode stunts, marathons and holiday movie stunts on TV this holiday on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

Some of the major TV stunts we mentioned already were Freeform's 25 Days of Christmas 2019 edition, concluding on Wednesday (Xmas Day) after 25 days. That is always a fan favorite pick of course! Some of the stuff that will air on Christmas Eve and Day on Freeform include The Santa Clause and Home Alone. However, our pick of the marathons is once again on Antenna TV! Starting today they have a "Christmas Collection" marathon beginning at 5am on Christmas Eve through 4am Christmas Day. Then will have a "Christmas Through the Years" marathon on Christmas Day running from 10am-4am. Shows airing during these two events include What's Happening!! to Bewitched to The Hogan Family to Three's Company! The MeTV Network will also have holiday episodes of their series like Diff'rent Strokes and Happy Days on Christmas Day, as they have had all month on Sundays. It's a Christmas conundrum! COZI TV has its A Very Cozi Christmas marathon that started on Dec. 9 and continues through Christmas Day with holiday episodes of shows like Little House, Frasier, and Roseanne. TV One says family matters this Christmas by airing a marathon of Family Matters, which airs Tuesday, December 24 starting at 6 a.m. ET until Wednesday, December 25 6 a.m. ET. .

Some of the other stuff includes TV Land, which will have holiday episodes of its series on Christmas Day, but it's not being called its annual Merrython again, but look for holiday episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, Two and a Half Men, The King of Queens, M*A*S*H and Everybody Loves Raymond all on Christmas Eve and Day. getTV has Bing Crosby on Christmas Eve and Day. Christmas episodes of Alice and Three's Company on Christmas Eve and Day will be just some of the items you will see on Logo. BBC America has a Doctor Who marathon that starts Christmas Eve at 6pm and lasting all the way to Dec. 27! Comedy Central goes for laughs of course with its 31 Days of Holiday Survival, with The Office today on Christmas Eve and holiday episodes of series like South Park tomorrow on Christmas Day. AMC has Rankin/Bass specials mixed in with movies.

For the 23rd year in a row Turner will have its annual A Christmas Story (1983) 24-hour movie marathon on TBS from 8pm Christmas Eve through 8pm Christmas night! TNT will also air the stunt! E! will air a Parks & Recreation marathon on Christmas Eve night from 10:20pm-6am then it's a marathon of the classic film It's a Wonderful Life all Christmas day from 6am-12am. Tons of other movie/film marathons on other nets like Harry Potter on USA, Die Hard on Paramount, and Bad Santa on MTV. The Simpsons every episode marathon that started Dec. 17 and concludes on Dec. 31 is on FXX, while Syfy will air a Christmas Day marathon of Futurama starting at 4pm. VH-1 will air a Fresh Prince marathon and Martin marathon on Christmas Eve. And NYC! WPIX has its annual holiday line-up set with 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, March of the Wooden Soliders, The Yule Log and The Honeymooners.

Stay tuned this time next week for our annual look at marathons on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! Join us then but of course keep coming back every day until then for news!
