IMO, this marathon is kind of disappointing. Do we really need 2 nights of ALF? I mean, it's not even that good of a show to begin with. Family Ties is probably the highlight, but having Cosby on when we get daily anyways is disappointing, too. And ET? They should have saved that for the weekend, and aired another TV show instead.

They couldn't obtain one or two other shows, that is why E.T. and another ALF is in there. Can't exclude Cosby Show, as it is one of the best of the 80s indeed, even if it does air on WGN already.

If they went with a second night of a show it should have been Family Ties. And I was hoping to see Benson and The Wonder Years. I'd say their 70s marathon was better. At least I'll get to see Family Ties and who knows, maybe I'll love Alf.

I agree, the 70's marathon was better. At least we had a great variety of shows. The 80's marathon really only showcases 2 classic 80's sitcoms, Cosby and Family Ties.

That is disappointing. I agree with everybody above.

Cosby Show airs daily on the channel so who cares?
Family Ties and ALF are great but no need for 2nd day of ALF...
Also, ET, I mean sure for a movie night that's a great one to air but no....

I know for a fact they were planning on having Mork & Mindy, but it fell through.

It's underwhelming compared to the 70s week, but I'll take it. I'm looking forward to "Family Ties," because I definitely haven't seen that in a long, long time. I think the last time I saw it was when it was on Hallmark for a short while a few years ago.

I grew up on "ALF" reruns, so I have no problem with it being included in the marathon at all. Two nights of it? Nah, I don't like that idea, especially considering they could have put a "Newhart" night in there. It would have been the perfect way to show some of the later episodes with Stephanie and Michael, but alas...

I'm not surprised by "The Cosby Show" being in there. I pretty much expected that one. I've never cared for "ET" so that's a big eh...

I don't like this.It would have been great if they could have shows like "The Facts Of Life" and Perfect Strangers.I personally don't really watch "The Cosby Show" because I've seen just about every episode and it had a lot of boring episodes like the one where the Grandfather is playing poker.I like that They're airing Alf and Family Ties.

I'm surprised they just didn't add Newhart as a part of it. It'll be nice seeing ALF and Family Ties, but I'd rather they'd have just held off for a while until they could obtain two other series.

Son of a gun. They didn't even bother adding Charles In Charge.
