TV Showings of the AFI Top 100

I posted a few weeks back about a handful of ways to watch the AFI Top 100—and I forgot the easiest one of all: your own TV!

The popularity of most of the AFI movies means that they are ever-present in TV listings, especially on channels like Turner Classic Movies and AMC (remember when American Movie Classics only showed... movie classics?) The former is my absolute favorite source for not only for movies on the AFI list, but classic movies in general. It's how I managed to see most of the Oscar Best Picture nominees over the past 10 years, and even some random favorites that I might never have seen otherwise.

Moving forward, I'm going to try to provide a monthly TV listing on this blog's sidebar ————————————————>
Hopefully it'll help any of you interested in kicking off your own AFI Top 100 journey!

For the purposes of space, I'll be posting the monthly listings on the sidebar, but a multi-month listing can be found here. Obviously, due to the flux-y nature of TV listings, the schedule is certainly subject to change. But check back every month to see if channels like TCM are screening any of your "still need to see" films! Just this coming February, during TCM's annual "31 Days of Oscar" celebration, they will be airing 26 out of 100 on the list!

Note: All listings will be posted for the US/Canada, specifically in Pacific Standard Time (PST), so be sure to adjust based on your location!
