WarnerMedia’s TNT, TBS, truTV Up Marathon Holiday Programming, Including ‘Friends,’ ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ Episodes

WarnerMedia’s TNT, TBS and truTV are blowing up winter holiday cheer with marathon rollouts of classic holiday movies and TV show episodes throughout December.

On Dec. 17, truTV will feature a new “Impractical Jokers: Dinner Party” episode, celebrating holiday meals and memories. TBS will air all-new Christmas-themed episodes of “American Dad” on December 21 and “The Misery Index” on December 23, as well as festive marathons of “American Dad,” “Family Guy,” “Friends,” “Seinfeld” and “The Big Bang Theory.”

An annual tradition since 1997, TBS and TNT will host a 24-hour marathon of “A Christmas Story” from Christmas Eve to Christmas. This marathon is consistently among television’s highest-rated programs around Christmas, and last year’s marathon reached nearly 35 million viewers across TBS and TNT. This year throughout the marathon, interstitials will feature fan-favorite AEW wrestlers performing a special table read of some of the film’s most iconic scenes. Additionally, the table read will be available to view at and on TNT’s YouTube page.
