10. The Simpsons – FXX – 6 p.m. Saturday to 12 a.m. Monday

Grab a Duff Beer (or a Squishee) and settle in for another Simpsons marathon on FXX. And this one is a doozy. Starting at 6:00 p.m. Saturday and stretching all the way to 12:00 a.m. Monday, you can enjoy episode after episode of the legendary cartoon family. Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie have had hundreds of adventures since 1989, and now’s your chance to ring in the new year, Springfield-Style.

The Simpson family is no stranger to TV marathons. In 2014, FXX aired every single episode, from start to finish, over a 12-day period. That started in August, and stretched into Labor Day, significantly boosting the ratings for the relatively new network. And earlier this year, they did it again in time for Thanksgiving. Season 1 began on Nov. 24, finishing up with Season 27 on Dec. 6.

Unlike those previous marathons, this time around, the episodes are in an arbitrary order. You’ll get to see a wide range of episodes from all 27 seasons. Luckily, this is a show that doesn’t rely on chronological episode order. So even if you’re a new fan, or a hardcore Simpsons-o-phile who only enjoys the earlier seasons, you’re sure to see plenty of hilarity in this 36-hour streak.
