Thanksgiving 2017 TV Schedule

All the New Shows, Specials, and Movies Airing on Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is a serious contender for the best holiday for two important reasons: delicious food and excellent TV. (OK, hanging out with your loved ones is pretty awesome too.) Thanksgiving TV is a treat that's almost on par with pumpkin pie, and the 2017 Thanksgiving Day lineup is no exception. After you've devoured the turkey and cranberries, you and your family can gather around the TV for football, Christmas classics, and, of course, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Once you've polished off your meal on Nov. 23, these Thanksgiving specials, shows, and movies will be ready to keep you and the rest of your family occupied . . . until everyone's ready for seconds.
