What to watch on a hot Fourth of July

With the Fourth of July holiday falling in the middle of the week this year – Wednesday to be exact – a lot of people aren’t getting those long holiday weekends they yearn for.

Instead, Wednesday is just a random day off in the middle of the week for some people.

For those that only have one day off – and it is supposed to be in the 90s again – sitting at home and watching a TV marathon could be an option -- especially since the bulk of us don't have access to a boat.

Following is a list of television marathons occurring around the Fourth of July holiday:

ABC Family: The show that never stops eliciting chuckles from the misfortune of others, ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos,’ runs for 12 straight hours starting at 11 a.m. Wednesday. 

AMC: It’s a few days after the Fourth, but the much anticipated ‘The Walking Dead’ marathon begins at 11:30 a.m. Saturday and includes a showing of the pilot episode in black and white and behind the scenes footage from filming on season three. For those that can’t wait for their zombie fix – this is the marathon to watch.

Antenna TV: Gidget returns to the airwaves from 7 a.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday – including those “unfortunate” movies.

Bravo: The network isn’t breaking too far from their daily schedule. Instead they’re showing a ‘Don’t be Tardy for the Wedding’ marathon from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Chiller: The hidden camera show ‘Scare Tactics’ runs from 6 a.m. Wednesday through 5 a.m. Thursday.

Discovery ID: Anyone interested in cheating and murderous spouse stories can get their fix by watching ‘Who the (Bleep) did I Marry’ from 9 a.m. to midnight Wednesday.

Oxygen: America’s favorite blue collar family, the Conners, will be front and center for a ‘Roseanne’ marathon from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.

SCIENCE: The short-lived but much missed ‘Firefly’ will be broadcast in its entirety starting at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Syfy: The still compelling ‘Twilight Zone’ will air from 8 a.m. Wednesday through 5 a.m. Thursday.

TLC: The always entertaining ‘Cake Boss’ runs from 6 a.m. to noon Wednesday. It will be followed by ‘Undercover Boss’ from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m.

TNT: Viewers can catch episodes of ‘The Mentalist’ from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and then get caught up with the entire run of the new ‘Dallas’ reboot from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

USA: From the network that loves marathons, viewers can get their weekly fixes of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday and ‘NCIS’ from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday.
