TRIBUTE: Bea Arthur bounty
April 27, 2009  | By Diane Werts

After Beatrice Arthur died over the weekend, TV channels went into overdrive scheduling episodes of her classic '80s sitcom The Golden Girls.

WE wound up first, with its "WE Remember Bea" marathon lineup running this Monday 5 p.m.-midnight ET and Thursday 9:30 p.m.-1 a.m. ET, spotlighting episodes that focus on her acerbic Dorothy character. The Golden Girls regularly runs on WE weekdays 5-7 p.m. ET.

Hallmark Channel also airs The Golden Girls, scattered all over the schedule. Get your DVR ready for action at these times, all ET -- Monday-Thursday 8-10 a.m., 7-9 p.m., midnight-2 a.m.; Friday night midnight-2 a.m.; Saturday 6-10 a.m.; Sunday 8:30-10 a.m.

Don't forget -- all six seasons of The Golden Girls series are available on DVD, too.

That seems a bit of overkill for 'Golden Girls'. I would rather see one of those cable channels offer up a marathon of 'Maude' to salute her, including at least the first 'All In The Family' in which she appeared.

Oh yes - Golden Girls was '80s, wasn't it? And whilst far more people across the world knew Bea as Dorothy rather than Maude, we can't have '80s TV, can we? The decade of Reagan must be denounced on all fronts (yawn).
