Of the things that we can almost stake money on and win every time is the knowledge that as every year closes up and leads us into the brand new one, that a marathon of the classic sitcom “The Honeymooners” will air some of its most fAMous episodes on Pix 11. Since a lot of us are not planning on elaborate gatherings or heading to Times Square in the madness, I’ve culled together the full list of the episodes that will air beginning tonight at 11PM. They will run continuously into the next day with a brief pause for area news at 4:30AM before picking back up again at 9AM. Let’s take a look.

Tuesday, Dec 31:
11PM – TV or Not TV
11:30PM – Funny Money

It almost feels like forever ago when I posted the FINAL TRAILER for “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and while it was only in October, we’ve surely had a bevy of content related to the film to share with you all. Since then there have been Featurettes, TV Spots and Promotional Posters that you can examine at your leisure by clicking HERE (I’ve directed you to my site for all of that since I posted more about the film on that page). Now its time for the moment that you have all been waiting for since “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opens today in theaters everywhere. As you know this was a journey that began some forty plus years ago in 1977 with “Star Wars: A New Hope” (before it even had a Roman numeral and chapter name). Today that film opens in theaters everywhere and I’d say to check your listings but you will likely be able to find a showing at every turn especially if you live in a big metropolis like we do. Below you’ll find the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting. Let’s review.
