What to Watch on Thanksgiving Besides Football

If you’re like me, on Thanksgiving you like to eat until your eyes bleed, unhook your pants and space out in front of the TV. Unfortunately for some, football seems to dominate the viewing schedule. If you aren’t in the mood to yell at the TV, here are some other things to watch besides football. 

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – It will air from 8am to 11am on NBC. Al Roker, Matt Lauer and Ann Curry are your hosts for the 85th Annual event. There will be numerous celebrity guests as well as performance groups and of course the giant balloons!! Check out the entire parade lineup HERE. Matt Lauer will also look back on 85 years of the parade from 9 to 10pm on NBC.

Thanksgiving Day Parade – This one will air on CBS from 8am to 11am.

Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas – 7pm on Fox.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving – 7pm on ABC.

Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown – 7:30pm on Fox. Not sure why they would put this up against the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on a different network, but I checked and it is correct.

Punkin Chunkin 2011 – 7 to 9pm on Discovery Channel. Mythbusters co-stars Kari Byron, Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci host as engineers unveil their pumkin cannons. Can. Not. Wait.

A Very Gaga Thanksgiving – 8:30 to 10pm on ABC. Mama Monster Lady Gaga herself will host her first Thanksgiving holiday special and will also perform with Tony Bennett.

In case you’re wondering about the football thing, it’s Green Bay vs. Detroit starting at 11:30am on Fox. Might be worth it to tune in to see if Nickelback gets booed off the stage. Miami plays Dallas at 3:15 on CBS and it’s San Fran vs. Baltimore at 7:20 on the NFL network.
