HBO Hands Over Saturday to '80s and '90s Comedy



Calling all Coneheads fans and folks who thought Buffy was funny even before she got a regular TV series: HBO has a movie lineup just for you. Starting bright and early tomorrow, the network is declaring a Classic Comedy Day, airing a half-dozen movies from the late '80s and early '90s back-to-back.

The day kicks off with Coneheads at 6:30 a.m. EDT and PDT then stops through the likes of The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! and Weekend at Bernie's before finally wrapping up with Mrs. Doubtfire at 5:45 p.m.

Of the six, I think I'm most excited about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which airs at 10:30 a.m. and which I haven't seen since some junior high-era sleepover. Don't worry, I have no illusions that it's good — I just can't wait to see if I still remember any of the best lines (and cheers). Any of these hold a special place in your heart? To see the full schedule, just read more.
