If you’re a classic TV fan, you’ve no doubt noticed that the TV Land network has definitely changed over the years. Swapping out classic TV shows for new pilots like ” Hot in Cleveland” and “Retired at 35”, the network seems to be veering away from old faves like “I Love Lucy” and steering toward the new.
But, one thing that hasn’t changed is TV Land’s Annual Merrython- a full night of holiday-themed episodes smack in the middle of the holiday season.
In 2010, TV Land’s Merrython will run on December 11th starting at 8:00 pm and continue running through the night. And while some of the network’s usual episodes are noticeable missing (“The Brady Bunch” episode, “The Voice of Christmas”, for example) you may be able to scour the TVL schedule for some random episodes Christmas thrown in here and there (the “Bewitched episode, “A Vision of Sugarplums”, airs at 2:00 pm on 12/11 instead of during the Merrython).
This year, TV Land’s Merrython is heavy on the “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “Roseanne”.
But in addition to the December 11/12th Merrython, more Christmas-themed episodes will air on TV Land on December 24th and 25th, and that list includes a heavier helping of classic TV like “The Jefferson’s”, “All in the Family” and ‘”The Andy Griffith Show”. Merry Classic Christmas!
