Logo Says "Bah Humbug" to the Usual Holiday Fare With Unexpected Programming Marathons

'Bad Ass High,' 'Logo's Tighty Whitey Weekend,' and 'New Year's Slay' Offer Alternatives to Traditional Holiday Programming

'Jackass' makes Logo premiere during 'Tighty Whitey Weekend'

NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2010 -- Look out, Rudolph! Logo is celebrating the holiday season with three atypical, "OMFG!" marathons that showcase Logo's fierce programming. The themed marathon weekends kick-off first with sassy, no-nonsense gals on the "Bad Ass High" marathon, followed by the Logo premiere of "Jackass" with "Logo's Tighty Whitey Weekend" marathon. Finally, be sure to get your fill of action, camp and a whole bunch of vampires with Logo's annual Buffy-themed New Year's celebration, "New Year's Slay," airing January 1 through January 2, 2011.

"Bad Ass High" marathon begins Saturday, December 11 at 9 a.m. ET/PT through Sunday, December 12, 2010

Tired of magical snowmen and flying reindeer constantly on your television this holiday season? Bring in the yuletide cheer with a vampire slayer, a high-school dropout and a sarcastic teen with the "Bad Ass High" marathon. Watch "Buffy," "Strangers with Candy" and "Daria" all weekend to see how these kick-ass girls bring down anyone who crosses their path.

"Logo's Tighty Whitey Weekend" marathon begins Saturday, December 18 at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT through Sunday, December 19, 2010

Take off your ugly holiday sweater and strip down to your skivvies! Spend the weekend with the wild boys of "Logo's Tighty Whitey Weekend." From the half-naked jokesters of "Jackass" to the hot hunks of "Nip/Tuck," Logo is baring it all. Whether you enjoy men behaving badly or just love a dude in his underwear, get down and dirty with these studs before they get into trouble. "Logo's Tighty Whitey Weekend" also includes episodes of Logo's hit series "The A-List: New York" and an array of films including: "Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom," "Latter Days," "Mulligans," "Boy Culture" and "Eating Out: All You Can Eat."

"New Year's Slay" marathon begins Saturday, January 1 at 6:00 a.m. ET/PT through Sunday, January 2, 2011

The year 2010 has come and gone. Vampires were the hottest trend and high school misfits were the heroes of television's top primetime shows. Why not have both with a "Buffy" marathon starting New Year's Day. Growing up is tough in Sunnydale, California: home to mean girls, shady teachers, and other sinister creatures of darkness. Fortunately it's also the new home of Buffy Summers; former cheerleader, mediocre student, and a vampire slayer who saves the world... all the time. Nurse your hangover with two days full of supernatural fierceness.
