Before we let you all go back to your families (or special friends), we want to let you know the marathons on TV you and your family might want to watch during the day and after Thanksgiving dinner. We love TV marathons and you all come here on each holiday to see what marathons are airing, so as always we will do that today, too, of course!
We have told you about some of the sitcom related marathons already in our regular news stories. Our pick of the weekend is the Dennis the Menace 27-hour marathon today (Thanksgiving Day) that started at 12am ET on Antenna TV! Last night on Thanksgiving Eve they aired classic sitcom Thanksgiving episodes including WKRP in Cincinnati's "Turkey's Away" and other sitcoms like Diff'rent Strokes and Too Close for Comfort. TV Land has a Laugh More-a-thon Weekend with many classics and modern classics including I Love Lucy, The Andy Griffith Show, Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch and more. TBS will once again present a Friends marathon today, Thanksgiving Day, from 10am-5pm with all of the series' Thanksgiving episodes. WE tv will have all the Thanksgiving episodes of Roseanne and Will & Grace airing from 12pm-4pm today in a marathon block. And New York City is lucky to have a marathon of The Honeymooners for the third straight year on Thanksgiving, today on WPIX from 11am-3pm, sandwiched in between two airings of the movie March of the Wooden Soldiers! Also in New York, we get the second straight year of Taxi on the Day After Thanksgiving, Friday from 9am-9pm on WLNY TV 55/10. So yeah we told you about all these already either recently or many moons ago. Now let's get to some we haven't had a chance to mention!
We didn't get a chance to mention ABC Family's The Middle Thanksgiving episodes marathon airing today from 7am-9:30am. FXX will present a marathon of The Simpsons along with an airing of The Simpsons Movie from 4pm-12am. USA Network will present a Modern Family marathon from 10am-12am. CMT will stick with the family sitcom, with a Reba marathon from 1-8pm. Portlandia gets a marathon on IFC from 9am-2:30pm. TVGN will set sail with a marathon of The Love Boat from 9am-3pm. We also have many many Thanksgiving themed episodes airing that are not in marathons like Friends on Nick at Nite, Boy Meets World on MTV2, and sitcoms like Will & Grace and Living Single on Logo.
Non-sitcom wise, INSP has a Waltons Thanksgiving movie marathon from 9am-9pm today and a Walker Texas Ranger Black Friday Marathon from 1pm-2am. WGN America has a marathon of America's Funniest Home Videos from 7pm-1am tonight, but before that a Blue Bloods Thanksgiving marathon will air from 12pm-7pm. Pivot will showcase a marathon for Friday Night Lights from 10am-9pm. TNT will have a marathon of Transporter: The Series from 11am-11pm. Other notables for Thanksgiving Thursday include an Adventure Time marathon on Cartoon Network today from 9am-2pm, a The Millionaire Matchmaker marathon on Bravo from 3-10:30pm, a Jurassic Park movie marathon on AMC from 10am-2am, MTV has a RidicuFEAST Thanksgiving marathon of Ridiculousness, a Cops marathon on Spike starting at 5pm, a Duck Dynasty Thanksgiving marathon on A&E starting at 1pm and a John Wayne movie marathon on Encore Westerns from 6am-1am. We also have many many movies marathons on networks like ABC Family, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movie Channel, Lifetime, Universal HD, and more.
On the networks tonight, there are two original specials: Thank You America! With Robin Roberts on ABC an An All-Star Dog Spectacular on Fox.
