Brusimm tv newsAfter digging around a bit, I didn’t find a huge amount of plans by networks for the upcoming Labor Day weekend…  but if you opt out of checking out the new movies in theaters this Labor Day weekend, maybe you were pondering what’s on the tube.  (Hmm, TV’s aren’t really tubes anymore.  The flat?  The tile? Eh, we’ll figure it out.  Any suggestions?)

But here’s what I did discover that will be on over the holiday weekend, AND REMEMBER, all schedules can change, so double check with your local listing or smartphone app.

STARZ In Black “Torchwood: Miracle Day” Labor Day Marathon – Monday, September 3 from 10am to 11:10pm

One day, nobody dies. All around the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. “Torchwood: Miracle Day,” a STARZ Original series, stars John Barrowman (“Torchwood”, “Desperate Housewives”) as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles (“Torchwood”, “Little Dorrit”) as Gwen Cooper, Mekhi Phifer (“ER”, “Lie to Me”) as Rex Matheson and Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day) as Oswald Danes.

  • 10:00am                Episode 101: The New World
  • 11:00am                Episode 102: Rendition
  • 12:00pm                Episode 103: Dead of Night
  • 1:00pm                Episode 104: Escape to LA
  • 2:00pm                Episode 105: The Categories of Life
  • 3:00pm                Episode 106: The Middle Men
  • 4:00pm                Episode 107: Immortal Sins
  • 5:00pm                Episode 108: End of the Road
  • 6:00pm                Episode 109: The Gathering
  • 7:00pm                Episode 110: The Blood Line

At least the episodes are in order.  I hate when a network splatters the order then blames fan popularity for confusing the crap out of you.
