TV Land to Honor Knotts


TV Land will honor the late Don Knotts with two separate on-air tributes.

Knotts died Friday at the age of 81.

The network will air a six-episode presentation of Knotts’ work as small-town deputy Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show Tuesday from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. (EST/PST).

Then Saturday, TV Land will air a 48-hour marathon of both The Andy Griffith Show and Three’s Company. Knotts played eccentric landlord Mr. Furley in the latter.
