TV Shows to Watch on Thanksgiving

Charlie Brown and Lucy Thanksgiving Day usually includes at least two core activities: eating and watching TV. We have a fairly good idea of what you’ll be eating. But what will you be watching?

Whether you’re staying at home, going out of town or living abroad, here are a few traditional and not-so-traditional programs to keep the Thanksgiving spirit alive…at least until Black Friday.

  • Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade  — NBC, 9:00 am ET
    The Today Show gang – Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie — host the annual event that is celebrating its 87th year.
  • The National Dog Show – NBC, 12:00 pm ET
    Can the Wire Fox Terrier defend its Best in Show title for a third year in a row?
