Labor Day TV offers choices: Jerry Lewis, 'Jersey Shore' marathon, classic movies and more

Once Hurricane Earl has left the area for good, the meteorology people tell us, it will be another beautiful weekend.Just in case you have, TV can offer plenty of indoor options.
Like, say, staying inside on Monday, clicking to MTV and watching six hours of "Jersey Shore."
It's like a day at the beach without all the sand.
Those who prefer their Labor Day television more traditional can watch Sunday night's annual Jerry Lewis telethon for muscular dystrophy. This is the 45th edition and last year it raised more than $60 million.
Here are some of the features around the TV dial this weekend:
ABC Family: Monday at 3 and 7 p.m., a double shot of the classic 1965 film "The Sound of Music," starring Julie Andrews.
Bravo: Sunday, 6 p.m.midnight, a mini-marathon of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Monday, 10 a.m.-midnight, a maxi-marathon of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," 10 a.m.-midnight. (Inexplicably, it'll be interrupted 10-11 p.m. for an episode of "Thintervention.")

Disney Channel: Friday night at 8, the new Jonas Brothers/Demi Lovato movie "Camp Rock 2" makes its much-anticipated debut. It then returns Saturday and Sunday nights, also at 8.
History: Sunday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m., "Ice Road Truckers." Monday, 8 a.m.-9 p.m., "Pawn Stars."
MTV: Monday, 5-11 p.m., "Jersey Shore."
TLC: Sunday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., "Say Yes to the Dress." Monday, 6 a.m.-9 p.m., "Little People, Big World."

TV Land: Monday, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., "Bewitched," and 2-10 p.m., "The Nanny." Perhaps to recognize Labor Day, the "Bewitched" episodes include the birth of Tabitha, and the "Nanny" episodes end with the Sheffields expecting.
USA: Sunday, noon-1:30 a.m., a movie marathon. In order: "Hairspray," "Pretty Woman," "Juno," "Legally Blonde 2," "Pacifier," "Hairspray." Monday, noon-9 p.m., "NCIS."
WWOR (Ch. 9): Sunday, Jerry Lewis telethon beginning at 9 p.m. and running until at least Monday at 6 p.m. Jerry's in Las Vegas, and Tony Orlando will host in New York.
Guests and performers will include Barry Manilow, David Archuleta, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charo, Carrot Top, Enrique Iglesias, Maureen McGovern, George Wallace, Ray Romano, Nigel Lythgoe and Richard Belzer.
There will be performances from Broadway shows including "Memphis" and "Million Dollar Quartet" - plus, of course, the cast of "Glee."
No word yet on Betty White. Maybe she's spending the weekend at the beach.
