Thu, November 26
Thanksgiving Day always comes with a huge helping of the NFL. The day starts on FOX with the Philadelphia Eagles at the Detroit Lions. Then on CBS, Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers visit AT&T Stadium for a matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. The feast concludes on NBC as the Chicago Bears visit Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre will have his No. 4 jersey retired in a ceremony at halftime.
For the 89th edition, the famed lineup will feature 17 giant character balloons; 24 novelty/ornament balloons, balloonicles and trycaloons; 27 floats; 1,100 cheerleaders and dancers; more than 1,000 clowns; 12 marching bands; a host of celebrity performers; and of course, the one and only Santa Claus. This year, the Today show’s Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie will anchor the three-hour broadcast.
This network's tradition is to showcase festivities from across the country, and it holds to that plan -- but expect much coverage of the event that largely symbolizes such Thanksgiving events, the Macy's Parade in New York. Wayne Brady, "Star Trek" icon George Takei and model Taylor Hill are slated to appear as Kevin Frazier ("Entertainment Tonight") and Keltie Knight ("The Insider") host. Justin Bieber and Broadway's "Jersey Boys" cast perform.
ESPN networks have a big Thanksgiving Day spread as part of Feast Week, with college basketball games from the AdvoCare Invitational in Orlando, Fla., the Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas, the NIT Season Tip-Off at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., and the DIRECTV Wooden Legacy in Fullerton, Calif.
