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).
