While donning your favorite sequined outfit, spending two hours on the perfect beat, and rewarding your efforts with a steady influx of champagne refills has its merits, sometimes the best New Year's Eve is the one spent at home, on the couch, soothing your brain with your favorite TV characters. In the spirit of low-key celebrations, these 9 TV marathons to watch on NYE will keep you just as entertained as Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation With At The Party. (Probably.)
There's a little something for everyone playing on New Year's Eve this year, whether vintage HBO, Real Housewives, or genre television is your thing. Sure, you could check out something new on Netflix and skip the commercials, but where would the warm fuzzies of classic TV (and by "classic," I clearly mean '90s) nostalgia come from if you weren't hanging out with the characters, storylines, dialogue, and episode formats that you already know and love? Plus, commercials offer convenient breaks for snacks, mini-cleaning storms, or saging every room of your house. And you can always set an alarm for midnight, champagne toast your beautiful self, and enjoy your stream of Happy New Year texts as they roll in. Here's what you can watch while you're doing it.
