TV Junkie: TV As Thanksgiving Coping Mechanism

Hang with Rod today during "The Twilight Zone" marathon starting at Noon on The CW
LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

If you are either cooking the Thanksgiving feast or are fortunate enough to be sitting around, waiting for it to be cooked, you might want to have some television accompaniment other than the endless cavalcade of football games, college and otherwise.Starting first thing in the morning is the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as well as several all-day movie and TV show marathons (see below). Unfortunately, there weren't any movies in all of tomorrow's schedule that really jumped out at us. Please note that for late night, there will be new shows for "The George Lopez Show" as well as Conan and Fallon.
As you pick over the turducken bones, you might want to ruminate over Lou Dobbs' desire to be the freshman Senator of New Jersey.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
