This weekend, Black history will be made when the 45th Annual NAACP Awards airs on TV One, live at 9 p.m. ET. The Awards will showcase Black achievers in film, television, sports, books and more. But for those of you still suffering from Scandal withdrawal, BET wants to help. The network, which airs same-season Scandal reruns as well, is hosting a Season 3 marathon this weekend that will get you caught up until new episodes return on Thursday, February 27th. And if you’ve been captivated with this year’s Winter Olympics from Sochi, Russia, you can bid them goodbye this weekend as they come to a close with the closing ceremonies on Sunday. Here’s what else is happening this weekend.
