15 TV Show Marathons To Watch Over New Year's

Whether you’re looking for an excuse to stay in on New Year’s Eve, or something to distract you from your New Year’s Day hangover, here are 15 TV marathons to indulge in over the holiday.

The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

Channel: AMC

Begins: Dec. 31, 9 a.m.

Ends: Jan. 2, 5 a.m.

Maybe 2014 will be the year of the zombie apocalypse. Maybe it won't. Either way, what better way to celebrate the end of the year than with a series about the end of humanity?


The Mindy Project

The Mindy Project

Channel: Bravo

Begins: Dec. 31, 11:30 a.m.

Ends: Dec. 31, 5 p.m.

In case you've missed any of The Mindy Project's stellar second season, Bravo is airing every episode thus far. And it ends at 5, so you still have time to go out if you have New Year's Eve plans. It's also fine if you don't.




Channel: Comedy Central

Begins: Dec. 31, 5:30 p.m.

Ends: Jan. 1, 12 a.m.

Begins again: Jan. 1, 11:26 a.m.

Ends: Jan. 1, 6 p.m.

Doesn't 2014 feel weirdly futuristic? For a (slightly exaggerated) look at what that future might look like, check out Comedy Central's Futurama marathon, which even gives you a chunk of time in the middle to sleep for 11 hours and 26 minutes.

Comedy Central

Home Improvement

Home Improvement

Channel: Hallmark Channel

Begins: Jan. 1, 4 p.m.

Ends: Jan. 2, 6 a.m.

You're not handy with tools, but you're great at watching Home Improvement. Good, you'll need a considerable set of skills to make it through this marathon, which runs for over 12 hours.
