What to watch over Thanksgiving weekend

What to watch over Thanksgiving weekend

Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK somehow. That came out of nowhere. Whether you're cooking or just eating, sharing a meal with likeminded individuals or your crazy drunk uncle on either side of the political spectrum, you're going to need something to watch, something that's not football (blech). Here are some good TV bets for Thanksgiving weekend.

The Simpsons on FXX: From noon on Thanksgiving Day through December 6, FXX is showing all 600 episodes of The Simpsons. We need Homer (and Lisa) now more than ever.


Gilmore Girls on Netflix: The original seven seasons are already there, so you can start on that now. But the four new movie-length episodes drop at 2 AM CST the day after Thanksgiving. You can watch while keeping your Black Friday deal finger on the trigger. Why wait in line at Wal-Mart when you could be cuddled on the couch with your computer and Lorelai and Rory.

Movies on AMC: AMC is foregoing a Walking Dead marathon for John Wayne movies on Thursday and kids movies (Goonies, Ghostbusters, Jumanji) on Friday.

5-Night Thanksgiving Event on Hallmark Movie Channel: Five nights of original holiday movies hosted by Candace Cameron-Bure and starring such luminaries as Dean Cain, Alicia Witt (who only makes Hallmark movies any more, no shade; get that sweet, sweet Christmas cash, Alicia Witt), Tom Skerritt, and Eric McCormack.

Beat Bobby Flay and Chopped on Food Network: You can't go wrong with Chopped, really, though I'm neutral to negative on Beat Bobby Flay.

Catch up on other TV: Westworld (HBO), Black Mirror (Netflix), The Great British Baking Show (Netflix), My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (The CW)

What's on your watch list this Thanksgiving?


I wrote a book! It's YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it "a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the right notes."
