12 Days of Simpsons, plus 3 other TV marathons

The FXX channel “Every Simpsons Ever” marathon wraps up today. How’d the Bartapalooza do? Fledgling network FXX figured that forking over $1 billion for the rights to “The Simpsons” would pay off, and it looks like it did: according to The Hollywood Reporter, episodes of the round-the-clock marathon that aired during prime time averaged 1.01 million viewers, up 391 percent from what FXX usually draws.

If you’re caught up on classic “Simpsons” episodes, here are a few other marathons that will keep you on the couch today:

–To no one’s surprise: USA is broadcasting a “NCIS” marathon beginning at 6 a.m.

–Looking for someone tougher than Jethro Gibbs? Catch all the “Rambo” movies starting at 12:30 p.m. on TMC.

–Take a ride in the wayback machine and watch all the original “Star Trek” movies. They begin airing in order at 8:30 a.m. today on SyFy, from “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” to “The Undiscovered Country.”
