American U.S. FlagOn the broadcast networks your best bet is the soon to be history Everwood or the NBA playoff game. Other than that you will just have to make do with many a TV show marathon for the Memorial Day holiday. Whether watching TV or grilling in the backyard with friends, take time out to remember what this day is for. Keep those that have given the ultimate sacrifice in mind. Without them we would not be able to watch the TV shows and have those backyard parties. We here at TVaholic salute the fallen heroes and their families.
