It’s a full Thanksgiving Day feast of NFL football with three big divisional rivalry games: the Chicago Bears at the Detroit Lions (CBS), the Philadelphia Eagles at the Dallas Cowboys (FOX) and the primetime matchup of the Seattle Seahawks at the San Francisco 49ers (NBC).
America’s turkey day gets off to a gobbling-good start as giant balloons, floats, marching bands, cheerleaders, celebrities and the jolly guy himself usher in the holiday season. This holiday tradition has aired on NBC since 1948.
Formerly anchor partners on "The Insider," Kevin Frazier -- who has moved on to co-host "Entertainment Tonight" -- and Thea Andrews reunite to cover holiday festivities in various parts of the country. Expectedly, highlights of the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York are included. Taylor Swift and the Broadway casts of "Matilda" and the revival of "Pippin" are among the featured performers.
