Labor Day TV Marathons to Watch

by Nick Zaino, posted Sep 3rd 2010 11:35AM
FX shows a 'Two and A Half Men' Labor Day marathon Ah, Labor Day weekend. A time when most will celebrate the last days of summer by going outside and enjoying the fresh air. Some of us, most probably many reading this right now, will celebrate a long weekend and the opportunity to work on our TV tan.

There are marathons to suit just about everybody, whether you love Charlie Sheen, smart new dramas, evil-looking fish, or just want to kill your husband. Plenty of shows will frequent network schedules, like 'Law & Order' and 'SpongeBob SquarePants,' but here are some multi-hour blocks for which to plan.

Review: The Biggest Loser - Week 12

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 2nd 2009 9:00AM
Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, The Biggest Loser trainers(S08E12) As we all learned in the last episode, last week was the contestant's last week on the Biggest Loser Ranch. Now, it was time to face the real world once again as the final four contestants headed home for 60 days. Then, it would be back to the ranch for one final weigh-in to determine which two contestants were guaranteed spots in the finale next week, and which two would have to plead for America to vote them in as the third finalist.

The episode was framed and put together very nicely as a showcase for all the hard work Rudy, Danny, Amanda and Liz have put in during their time on the Ranch, and how much they've each grown and changed from this experience. It served as a retrospective of the season, in part, as well as an affirmation that the work this show is doing can change lives.

Stargate: Continuum should be a part of Syfy's upcoming marathon

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 4th 2009 11:03AM
stargate continuumSyfy will air a ten-hour Stargate SG-1 marathon on Sept. 25 in anticipation of the Oct. 2 premiere of Stargate Universe. Like I mentioned earlier at SciFi Squad, the network is asking fans to pick their ten favorite SG-1 eps for inclusion in the marathon.

I was never a big SG-1 fan, but I'll be popping in and out of the marathon to catch some of the series' more popular eps. Hopefully, Syfy will do fans a solid by capping off the marathon with Stargate Continuum, last year's excellent Stargate DVD movie.

Macy's ParadeSo Mike has already given you a heads up on what's on TV Thanksgiving, on the geek end of the spectrum, so I thought I'd do a companion piece for the viewers who are wondering what channel the Macy's Parade is on and what time each football game starts. There are also some great marathons on as well.

TV Land's marathons are evil

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 3rd 2006 5:02PM
BensonHere's a piece of advice: don't ever, ever tune into TV Land on a Saturday when you don't have anything planned. If they're playing the right show, you'll get completely sucked in to the point where the sun will go down and you'll have never gotten out of your pajamas.

How do I know this? Because I've been watching the Benson marathon since about 10 AM, and have barely switched away from it since. I was going to pick up dry cleaning and go out for a nice lunch, maybe get some writing work done. But here it is, 5:00, and all I've done is laugh my ass off at one of my all-time favorite shows (one I haven't seen in many years). God, Kraus was funny. And Benson's insults towards her and Clayton were legendary, and... oh, crap. I need to go out for dinner tonight. Guess I'll actually need to leave the apartment...
