Forget fresh air! There's no better way to celebrate Memorial Day Weekend than logging some serious quality-viewing time on the sofa watching endless hours of TV. But what to watch? Check out a selection of the many holiday-weekend marathons the networks have planned:
(All times are ET/PT)
Ioan Gruffudd and Sarah Michelle Gellar
Why did Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar choose to return to TV with Ringer? To honor her fans.
"I have the most incredible fan base and I also had the most incredible show," she told TVGuide.com at the CW's recent upfront in New York. "You don't repeat history, but you also want to honor that and my fans are smart and like evocative television and with this all the pieces fell into place."
Ken Baumann, Francia Raisa
WARNING! The following interview contains a major spoiler about the upcoming Secret Life episodes.
Just as Ben and Adrian are ready to settle into married life and parenthood, they're going to be hit with a devastating blow — the loss of their baby. Ken Baumann, who plays Ben, says the tragedy will not only devastate the couple in The Secret Life of The American Teenager, it will change the course of every relationship in the series.

CNBC President Mark Hoffman called Haines a "building block" of the network. "With his searing wit, profound insight and piercing interview style, he was a constant and trusted presence in business news for more than 20 years," Hoffman said in a statement to CNBC employees. "From the dotcom bubble to the tragic events of 9/11 to the depths of the financial crisis, Mark was always the unflappable pro. Mark loved CNBC and we loved him back. He will be deeply missed."
Season 4 of Damages will premiere July 13 on DirecTV.
"The opportunity to be on DirecTV this season allows us to explore another chapter in the lives of Patty Hewes and Ellen Parsons, and push the envelope in terms of storytelling and content," series creators Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler said Wednesday in a statement.
The show will be carried Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Audience Network, which is the new name for DirecTV's 101 Network.

Bentley and Ashley
Although The Bachelorette's Ashley Hebert has a strong group of guys to choose from, one suitor stood out in the season premiere, but not in a good way. Before the night began, Ashley explained to host Chris Harrison that she had been warned about Bentley and that he was going on the show to promote his company and not find love. Despite Ashley's intel — and Bentley admitting to producers he had hoped Emily Maynard would be the Bachelorette — she gave him a rose. Harrison tells TVGuide.com he begged Ashley to cut him, but she went with her gut. Plus: Harrison weighs in on some of the night's more memorable men.
