As this Xfinity editor likes to say, life is not a sprint. It's a TV marathon - especially over the long Memorial Day weekend.

For some people, the 3-day holiday is full of rituals, from the solemn remembrance of our fallen service men and women to BBQ competitions, with plenty of golf, water skiing, gardening, and just doing nothing in between.

Then, there are those of us who look forward to another tradition - the TV marathon. Sitting on the couch (sometimes the bed or sometimes laying on the floor). Watching hour after hour of favorite shows (The Simpsons), shows that hone your personal skills (Dating Naked), and educational shows (Ancient Aliens).

Sound familiar?

Whatever your taste, we put together your ultimate guide to all the marathons we could find scheduled – and where possible we linked to the network’s live stream in case you’re reading this on your phone and want to pull over or sit down on a park bench and start watching.

And if you aren’t interested, have a good weekend anyway!
