2015 Thanksgiving TV Marathons on TV This Holiday Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! We thank you for visiting us on this special day and every other day, all-year. We also are very thankful that you all will continue to visit every single day and making this blog a continued huge success. We get thousands of visitors every day (even on weekends). So, we thank you for the growth each year! It is simply amazing and I can't believe it has been over 10 years now of posting on this blog every single day no matter what! No days off!
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 Leave it to Beaver 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 Evening Shade and Too Close for Comfort. TV Land has a Laugh More-a-thon Weekend with The Facts of Life airing today on Thanksgiving Day from 9am-9pm. Other TV Land marathons include The Golden Girls on Friday from 9am-6pm and Younger from 11pm-5am on Friday night. TBS will once again present a Friends marathon today, Thanksgiving Day, from 10am-4pm with all of the series' Thanksgiving episodes. WE tv will have all the Thanksgiving episodes of Roseanne airing from 10am-1:30pm today in a marathon block. And New York City is lucky to have a marathon of The Honeymooners for the fourth straight year on Thanksgiving, today on WPIX from 11am-3pm, sandwiched in between two airings of the movie March of the Wooden Soldiers! So yeah we told you about most of 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 about FXX presenting a marathon of The Simpsons from 4pm-10pm. USA Network will present a Modern Family marathon from 4pm-1am, following a Chrisely Knows Best marathon from 6am-4pm. CMT will stick with the family sitcom, with a Reba marathon from 10am-2pm and then a Last Man Standing marathon from 2pm-8pm. That '70s Show gets a marathon on IFC from 6am-10pm.

Ovation will have a Dharma & Greg marathon from 9am-1pm today. We also have many many Thanksgiving themed episodes airing that are not in marathons like Full House on Nick at Nite, Everybody Hates Chris on MTV2, and Bewitched on Logo.

Non-sitcom wise, INSP has a Waltons Thanksgiving movie marathon from 1pm-9pm today and a Bonanza Black Friday Marathon from 1pm-9pm.
