Johnson Family Vacation completely takes over and swallows HBO

Oh my freaking God, is Johnson Family Vacation EVER going to not be on HBO? I swear, it's been on every day for 6 months now.

Any other movies seem to get overplayed on the cable networks? List'em here.

I remember when Beastmaster used to be on every other week on the Turner networks.

HBO=Hey Beastmaster's On

Well at least 'Johnson Family Vacation' is a timeless classic unlike that Shawshank drivel.

You can add Contact to the overplayed TNT list too. Great movie though.

I remember one summer in the early '90s where it seemed that HBO played Killer Klowns From Outer Space every day.

Back when I was in college, it seemed like everytime I turned over there it was House Party 3.

The Comedy Central Secret Stash movies are always the same, either South Park, Dave Chappelle, or Jay and Silent Bob.

The list begins and ends with TNT and The Devil's Advocate. I never bought the DVD because I literally only had to wait three days before it would be on again.

More TNT madness:

The Mummy
A Few Good Men (This ALWAYS plays whenever I get a hotel room somewhere)
Rush Hour (I think TBS plays it more)

Something tells me a certain Julia Roberts movie gets major airplay. Can't figure out which one.

Pleasantville is always on TBS. It's probably on right now.

Top Gun on TBS is the king of repeat broadcasts. Also can't forget the Patrick Swayze twins Dirty Dancing and Road House

Yes!

Although I'm almost 100% sure it was 1989, not the early '90s, assuming we're talking about the same summer. I remember because I spent that summer visiting family, and every single day, I'd get a Chicken McNuggets happy meal and watch Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Howling III: The Marsupials, and Ghoulies 2. Not only did they air pretty much every single day, but they usually aired back-to-back.

It could've been 1989. I do remember that I was four (1989) or five (1990) at the time, and I would watch it every day. Don't remember Howling III or Ghoulies 2.

But that's only done once a year. That could apply to any holiday-themed film (like NBC shows It's a Wonderful Life at least 3-4 times during the season).

Starz/Encore plays Kill Bill 1 and 2, and Pulp Fiction five or six times a day spread across the 13 channels. I never thought I'd get tired of any of those movies, but damn.

TBS used to constantly show Above the Rim late at night.

What? Johnston Family Vacation or The Beastmaster?

I'll agree with everyone on the crap that is Johnston, but don't ever start talking smack about the cinema classic that was The Beastmaster!
