What are you Watching this Weekend?

As one month ends and another begins this weekend... there are some things you might want to watch - if you plan to stay in and beat the heat, or perhaps it's a rainy day- wherever you are...

June 30, 2012 Saturday

Get ready to laugh... there's an I Love Lucy Marathon on the Hallmark Channel.

And TCM is airing a classic movie from 1940, titled - Christmas In July. The movie stars Dick Powell as a man who is fooled into thinking he's won a $25,000 prize - and then goes on a Christmas shopping binge, even though it's the middle of July!

July 1, 2012 Sunday

The Lucy Marathon continues with a We Love Lucy Marathon on the Hallmark Channel.

Religious movies will air all day on the GMC. On July 2 they will begin a week of marathons, starting with the drama series, Heartland... and leading up to their premiere of 7th Heaven on their Network, next weekend.

Pride and Prejudice, the beloved 1996 movie version, that stars Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy will air on Ovation 2 PM - 8 PM.

Both Movies of The Music Man can be seen on TV... the original from 1962 and the remake from 2003.

Monumental, the documentary of our American Heritage, hosted by Kirk Cameron, can be seen on INSP. (Click here to see promo video.)

Whatever you see or do - I hope you all will keep cool and enjoy your weekend!

See the Family TV Schedule for times airing!

Kirk Cameron's Monumental - in Search of America's National Treasure

This documentary presented by Kirk Cameron (actor from TV's Growing Pains, Left Behind Movie Series, Fireproof, and Way of the Master, etc...) takes you on a journey of America's history and a look at what may be ahead for our Country, if we follow our current path.

Watch the TV Premiere of Monumental
on INSP - July 1, 2012 at 9 PM
(Repeats at 11 PM)

Synopsis from Monumental Web-site:
Monumental is the story of America’s beginnings. Presented, produced, and starring Kirk Cameron, the 90-minute true story follows this father of six across Europe and the U.S. as he seeks to discover America’s true “national treasure” – the people, places, and principles that made America the freest, most prosperous and generous nation the world has ever known.

Monumental is heralded as “inspiring,” “beautifully executed,” “powerful,” and “one meant to teach.”

Long regarded as “the land of opportunity,” there’s no question the tiny band of religious outcasts who founded this country hit upon a formula for success that went way beyond what they could have imagined. How else can you explain the fact that they established a nation that has become the best example of civil, economic and religious liberty the world has ever known?

What formula did they discover? What motivated them to come here in the first place? More importantly, how can we apply these same foundational truths today?

Take your family on a new adventure to discover the true national treasure of America.

Fathers Day TV Specials

I know many Fathers will be extra busy on Fathers Day - attending church services, spending time with family, minding the grill, and perhaps, getting in a round or two of golf.

That's why it's great that the INSP Father Day Tribute airs the night before Fathers Day, June 16, from 6 PM - 2 AM. INSP is Channel 364 on DirecTV, Channel 259 on DISH Network, Channel 131 on Sky Angel, and it is available on most cable systems. See episode details, here.

On Fathers Day, however, when it comes time to sit in his easy chair, relax, and let that steak digest... there will be plenty of sporting events on TV... from US Open Golf, Major League Baseball, a Nascar Race, etc. Whenever you get a chance, be sure to check out the Father Knows Best Marathon on Antenna TV (Digital Channel). It will air from 7 AM - 12 AM. See episode details, here.

Also, there will be Movies about Fathers on Hallmark Channel, GMC, and TCM. Operation Cupcake will premiere on Hallmark amongst other great "father themed" movies and TCM will play one of the best old-fashioned family movies, Life with Father, at 4 PM.

Whatever you do, My hope is that your time is spent with family and you are surrounded by love.

Happy Fathers Day!
