All the Thanksgiving TV Marathons You Can Binge This Weekend

The Thanksgiving holiday is finally here, and besides the family reunions, turkey dinners, and fall football games, this means the return of holiday TV marathons.

Discovery Channel will run a marathon of Mike Rowe’s show “Dirty Jobs” on Thanksgiving Day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. to hopefully give viewers a reason to be thankful for the jobs they do have, rather than the ones shown on screen. Bear Grylls, another former Discovery star, will have a marathon of his own as National Geographic will air “Running Wild with Bear Grylls” from 12 p.m. to 3 a.m. For those who want some animated laughs on Thanksgiving day, Comedy Central will air “South Park” from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., FXX will marathon “The Simpsons” from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m., and Cartoon Network will run “Teen Titans Go!” from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Other notable marathons throughout the weekend include Freeform’s “Harry Potter” movie marathon on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. (Chance the Rapper recently tried to watch all eight movies straight but gave up. Maybe you can last longer?) or TNT’s marathon of “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday. If Thursday feasting isn’t enough, then Food Network is offering viewers a trip to Flavortown with “Diner, Drive-Ins and Dives” beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday, and GSN can give them a lift back home with a marathon of the “Cash Cab” game show beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
