Upcoming SOAPnet Marathons

SOAPnet announced Monday that it will air a four-episode marathon of ABC's hit comedy COUGAR TOWN on Saturday, November 14 from 5:00PM to 7:00PM. The critically acclaimed series airs Wednesdays at 9:30PM ET/PT on ABC.

The network also recently announced it was airing marathons during Thanksgiving weekend of HOLIDATE, BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 and BEING ERICA.

Put down the dishtowel, stop the cooking and cleaning, and come get filled up on SOAPnet's Thanksgiving marathons. On Thanksgiving night, escape to an evening of travel and romance with "Home for the Holidates," featuring five of the best episodes from SOAPnet's original docu-soap, HOLIDATE. Each episode focuses on two different women who are both successful and dynamic, but unlucky in love. These women will switch their cities, and more importantly, their dating pools! The marathon starts at 7PM ET/PT ON Thursday, November 26.

After you've stuffed yourself on turkey and travel, tune in to "Chillin' With Dylan" featuring the coolest guy in the 91201 zip code, Dylan McKay. Whether you loved him caught between Brenda and Kelly, dueling with his demons or just being the bad boy of Beverly Hills, we’ve got all the best Dylan episodes for you. The 8-hour marathon starts at 1PM ET/PT, Friday, November 27.

The Dylan stunt will be bookended with BEING ERICA episodes (which will also include a special 2:00PM ET/PT sneak peak of the new second season). Erica is a highly educated, underachieving single woman who struggles to understand why her life is at a standstill. She's made years of bad decisions and has a list of regrets. Enter the mysterious Dr. Tom, part therapist, part rogue. In each episode, Dr. Tom launches Erica back in time to a specific regret from her past, giving her the opportunity to re-live and even alter past choices in the hope of changing her present.


  1. Why don't they just go ahead and change the name of SoapNet? Now there not even airing daytime soap marathons? I actually enjoy Cougar Town and it is a night time soap so thats ok I suppose but marathons of Hollidate and Being Erica? Why not classic episodes like L&L wedding, or Bo/Hope, Erica/Dimitri, classic episodes. Afterall the people who subscribe to SoapNet subscribed because at the time they promised a channel dedicated to soaps.

  2. Katie, I wouldn't be surprised if SOAPnet eventually changes its name.

    I would think this is the perfect time for a classic Jonathan Jackson marathon.
