Downton Abbey Marathon (Again)

Written by Fred Vigeant, Director of Programming and Promotions for TV and Radio | Aug 23, 2017 6:13 PM

Last year WITF did something unprecedented. We rebroadcast the entire Downton Abbey series together in one long weekend. Well, we're going to do it again...one last time.

This Labor Day weekend...you can watch the show from start to finish...or pick up on your favorite episodes at different parts of the weekend. Watch all six seasons of Downton Abbey, totaling 46 episodes.

Revisit treasured moments from the unforgettable series. Celebrate the stellar cast, the superb writing and the spectacular locations of the most successful British drama ever. Catch the WITF Downton Abbey Marathon Labor Day Weekend.

We begin with Season 1 Episode 1 on Friday September 1 at 9:00pm. Then we continue straight through the weekend and wrap up the marathon Monday night at 12am.

Scheduling Notes:

After the first episode at 9:00pm, episodes will have non-traditional starting times. Episode two begins Friday at 10:58pm, then episode three at 12:57am on Saturday, etc.

This special event requires us to displace regularly scheduled programming Saturday September 2 through Monday September 4. Regular programming resumes with Charlie Rose at Midnight Monday.  We will also pause for PBS Newshour Monday night at 7:00pm. 

Kids programming is preempted all weekend on our main channel, but is avialable on the new 24/7 PBS Kids Channel available:
