As we roll into our fifth month of quarantine (deep, exhausted sigh) just in time for Fourth of July weekend, the usual beach outings and barbecues are off the table this year (or, at least, they should be). But, on the bright side, there's plenty to watch while we're cooped up this Independence Day. We're aware you could just watch Hamilton over and over again on Disney+, but if you choose to tune in to good old-fashioned cable TV, there's a smattering of marathons and specials to choose from.

On Friday, July 3, Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest will kick off the weekend with Live’s Coast-to-Coast Fourth of July Show, welcoming viewers and guests (including Hamilton star Renée Elise Goldsberry) from across the country into their backyards via video chat as they host the show from home. That night, the CW will air the iHeartCountry 4th of July BBQ, with performances by Kane Brown, Lauren Alaina, and Old Dominion.
