A Marathon of Marathons
(All Day)
What's the best follow-up to a feast of turkey and carbs? Yes, a nap. Or, couch potatoing with one of the many TV marathons on tap today.

For those who may be stressed out by getting the whole brood ready to go to Grandma's house, tune in to TLC (8AM) for a whole day with 'Jon & Kate Plus 8' for a look at how the Gosselins deal with a large fam every day.

More family-themed marathons: The Bluths of 'Arrested Development' on G4 (9AM); 'Family Feud' on GSN (9AM); 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' on E! (1PM); and, for a cautionary tale with some women who are examples of family dysfunction run amuck, an all-day marathon with season two of 'The Bad Girls Club' on Oxygen (8AM).

'The 82nd Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade'

This year's new balloons: a Smurf, Horton (of 'Hears a Who' fame), Buzz Lightyear and a Keith Haring tribute, while James Taylor, David Archuleta and Miley Cyrus perform.

'Storytellers: Kid Rock'
(9PM, VH1)
Whether you like him a lot or a little, this concert and gabfest will make you an even bigger fan, as the Detroit rocker croons songs like 'All Summer Long' and 'Bawitdaba' and shares the inspirations behind his tunes.

'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew'
(10PM, VH1)
As the whole family gathers around the tube to watch the D-listers try to repair the relationships they've trashed with their drug use, suddenly you realize Uncle Pat's annual Thanksgiving story about how he once had five of the six winning numbers in the state lottery isn't so bad after all.

'Most Christmasy Places in America'

(9PM, Travel)
The Mall of America ... Branson, MO ... Las Vegas ... those are but a few of the stops on this road trip to find the best places across the country to catch the holiday spirit.

'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving'

Because it just isn't Thanksgiving if Snoopy isn't serving up his special feast of popcorn, toast, jelly beans and pretzel sticks on the ping pong table.

'Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Destination Imagination'
(8PM, Cartoon Network)
Mac, Bloo, Eduardo and the gang will wrap up their adventures in a 2009 series finale, but for now, we're getting a special holiday treat with this 90-minute special in which the Foster's Home pals enter a new imaginary world inside a mysterious box.
