TV Picks: TV LAND HOSTS A TWO-DAY MARATHON FOR THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF “THE COSBY SHOW”
Happy Anniversary to “The Cosby Show!”
The Huxtable family constantly keeps us laughing. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the debut of the landmark television series, TV Land is hosting a two-day marathon on September 20th-21st from 2pm-10pm ET/PT.
The marathon begins Saturday, September 20th at 2pm with fan favorite episode, “How Ugly Is He?” This episode captures the day every father dreads – meeting his daughter’s boyfriend for the first time.
Things get complicated for Cliff (Bill Cosby) and Clair (Phylicia Rashad) when Denise’s (Lisa Bonet) outspoken boyfriend criticizes their professions. Another beloved episode airing, “The Birth Part 1,” involves havoc erupting in the Huxtable’s kitchen after Sondra (Sabrina Le Beauf) suddenly goes into labor.
Then, in a special anniversary–themed episode, “Happy Anniversary,” Cliff arranges a surprise European cruise for his parents for their special day while the children prepare a home cooked dinner for their Grandma (Clarice Taylor) and Grandpa (Earle Hyman), which is followed by their famous lip-sync rendition of “Night Time Is the Right Time.”
Sunday, September 21st at 2pm the marathon continues with the pilot episode that started it all. Theo (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) brings home a bad report card much to Cliff’s dismay. Other fan favorite episodes include “Theo’s Holiday,” “Say Hello To A Good Buy,” “If The Dress Fits, Wear It,” “Cliff’s Wet Adventure,” “Isn’t It Romantic” and more.
The marathon will conclude with the series’ final episode, “And So We Commence Part 2,” where eight years of magic, love and laughter with the Huxtable family comes to an end. Theo graduates from college and Cliff and Clair dance one last time in the living room and then off the set into television history.
