G4 to show Arrested Development marathon on Christmas day

Arrested DevelopmentLet's face it; TV in Christmas day blows, especially if you're not a fan of football, basketball, or constantly burning logs. Yeah, the various networks tend to have marathons, but many of them are holiday related, and by the time you've unwrapped the presents and drank your weight in egg nog, you're pretty damned sick of holiday cheer.

Our friends at G4 might have the perfect antidote to that: a marathon of everyone's favorite cancelled comedy, Arrested Development. According to Newsday, the network will air the entire first season of AD, starting at 9 AM Monday morning. That's eleven hours of Bluthian fun and games to help you forget that your aunt gave you socks for the tenth year in a row. Unlike a lot of comedies, the first season of AD hits its creative stride pretty quickly (I became a fan after watching the second episode), so there are no real growing pains to see here, just smart comedy. It's a heck of a lot better than hearing about Shaq and Kobe for the three billionth time.
