Scotty McCreery, 2011 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade This year, we're betting that 'American Idol' stars Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are mostly thankful that turkey day is firmly behind them. The Season 10 winner and runner-up both had pretty bad experiences yesterday.

An estimated 50 million viewers were watching as country crooner McCreery was revealed to be lip-syncing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.

Meanwhile, Alaina can now join the pantheon of singers -- yes, we mean you Christina Aguilera, Cyndia Lauper and ... um ... Scotty McCreery -- who've flubbed the national anthem on live TV.

macys_worlds_largest_storeRecently, when I shared my view about a certain Dell computer commercial, some of you thought I was a moron. Okay, we'll call it a difference of opinion.

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).
