It’s Thanksgiving, which means you’re either spending all day in the kitchen or all day on the couch shouting “Do you need any help?” into the kitchen. Or maybe you hit the jackpot, and you’re not hosting Thanksgiving this year, so you can relax until it’s time to show up with your dinner contribution. Either way, you’re going to need some entertainment. While we’re aware that football is the typical Thanksgiving television fare, we’re giving you some other idea of what to watch on Thanksgiving Day if that’s not your preferred programming.
If you haven’t started on the newest releases this year, you better get started as there are so many you’ll be busy into the new year. There’s a new movie every single night this week, plus plenty of movies from previous years are airing throughout the season to keep your DVR full. My favorite so far this year has been The Mistletoe Secret in spite of my skepticism about Kellie Pickler and the strong Balsam Hill product placement.
When it doubt, call in Charlie Brown
Sure, you could jump straight to a Charlie Brown Christmas, which is a great way to kick off the season, but there’s an often forgotten Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. It will air on ABC at 8:00pm EST.
Friends Thanksgiving Marathon
Sure, you could do the work yourself and find all of the Thanksgiving episodes on Netflix, but the good people at the cable company have done the work for you. Check your local listings for channels and times and be sure not to miss the reveal of the “I Hate Rachel” club.
All things Disney
Have you tried out Disney Plus yet? You can dive into some old favorites, or try out the new holiday movie Noelle with a seven day free trial. Wendy admits to being drawn into High School Musical the series, so that’s another good starting point.
