Macy's logoLet's talk turkey. Actually, let's talk Thanksgiving Day commercials, which may or may not involve actual turkeys.

I know, you probably can't remember a Thanksgiving commercial to save your life. There have been a ton of them over the years, but 99.9% of them have to do with department store sales ("Before Thanksgiving Sale!" and "After Thanksgiving Sale!" with a "Thanksgiving Sale!" thrown in for good measure) and they all seem to blend into each other after a while. But there are have been a few over the years that are worth looking at again, and after the jump we'll take a look at them.

Rosie O'Donnell is coming to your house for Thanksgiving

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 2nd 2008 3:02PM
RosieRumors have been swirling for months that Rosie O'Donnell was in negotiations with NBC to create her own show. There were even rumors that she would get a talk show on MSNBC to compliment Keith Olbermann's show (though now Rachel Maddow has that gig). Instead, it has been announced that Rosie will host a variety show on NBC on Thanksgiving Eve, November 26.

It's called Rosie's Variety Hour, because it's hosted by Rosie, it features variety, and it's going to last 60 minutes. Rosie will do a monologue and introduce musical and comedy acts, and they'll be big prizes for people in the studio audience and people watching at home. Rosie compares the show to Carol Burnett, Ed Sullivan, and Sonny & Cher. She had me at the first two. I'd love to see a show like that on TV again. Not sure about the last one, but I think I know what she means.

If the show is a hit, you might see it as a weekly series.

Coca-Cola: "Dueling Parade Balloons"

by Richard Keller, posted Feb 3rd 2008 10:09PM

Underdog and Stewie battle it out for a bottle of Coke

On a cool Thanksgiving morning old (Underdog) and new (Stewie from Family Guy) parade balloons battle it out for a inflatable bottle of Coca-Cola. As they cross the skyline of New York City fists fly and heads are butted. But, in the end, neither is the one who claims the prize. That honor goes to the honorable Charlie Brown, who seems to have finally won something in his life.

This was a cute and gentle commercial by Cola-Cola, which rarely disappoints when it comes to Super Bowl ads. I never realized that the Underdog and Stewie Thanksgiving Day balloons had such angry looks on their faces. That was an advantage in this commercial as we saw the two balloons battling it out. I enjoyed when Underdog slammed Stewie against the building. Nice job overall.

What Jay is thankful for

by Jay Black, posted Nov 22nd 2007 5:01PM
Does anyone else find this picture disturbing?I'm pretty sure that this TV Squad assignment -- make a list of all the things you're thankful for in television -- is going to get me in trouble with my family. See, I've only got so much introspection to spare and I've pretty much used up November's allotment making this list. When my wife asks me to give her one thing I'm thankful for this Thanksgiving, she'll probably be expecting me to say "all the love I receive from my family" or something else suitably goopy. When I say, "I'm really thankful for how good House has been this season," I'm going to get a carving knife plunged into my eye-socket.

But I knew the risks when I signed up to be a television blogger. As my blogging mentor Hyman Roth once told me, "This is the business we have chosen, Jay." My list after the jump...

What Keith is thankful for - VIDEO

by Keith McDuffee, posted Nov 22nd 2007 1:02PM
mmmmmuah!I've got plenty to be thankful for in my life, but -- pffft! -- y'all don't care to hear about that! This is TV Squad after all, so let's get down to what I'm thankful for when it comes to all-things television:

Damages getting uber-renewed
As the first season of Damages ticked down toward its finale, I wasn't the only one afraid that F/X was being quiet about the show's renewal status. It wasn't until recently that we were blessed with the news of not only one new season, but two! Many of us fans have already gone into speculating what the major plot will be for the second season, but to now wrap our minds around a third ... wow.

The Shield having all remaining episodes in the can
The WGA strike is obviously going to be a huge downer for TV watchers everywhere, if it hasn't been already. Some shows will take months to reappear, possibly if at all! Thankfully one of my beloved shows, The Shield, apparently won't be affected by the strike, as it has its final season all wrapped up for us like a fat present under the tree (even if it does air in the spring).

ThanksgivingI may not celebrate Thanksgiving today (as Robin from How I Met Your Mother would say, "The real Thanksgiving was in October!") but that doesn't mean I cannot take part of TV Squad thankful post series.

Television is a big part of my life. I've grown with it. I spend hours with it every day. So it's about time, I give thanks for having television in my life!

What Jackie is thankful for

One very thankful TV turkeyWe're all thankful for many things in our lives. Good health, family, friends, our homes ... those often come to mind when Thanksgiving rolls around.

But sometimes it's the everyday things which we take for granted -- things like entertainment and television -- which get overlooked. I've been a reading fanatic and a television fan all of my life. Without those two mind diversions, my life would be very different ... perhaps not a good different.

So when I heard I had a chance to write about what I'm thankful for in (or on) television, I jumped at it.

What Jason is thankful for

Turkey tan lineThanksgiving is about overindulgence; cramming our bodies to bursting with turkey and potatoes and gravy and cranberry sauce and just when we think we're going to heave if we have one more bit, it's the one day in which it is socially acceptable to unbutton your pants so you can squeeze in that last slice of pumpkin pie. Gluttony with approval, thanks be to the cook! As it turns out, TiVo is about overindulgence too, which is why it tops my list.

Now I can follow Everybody Hates Chris, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, Chuck and Prison Break (Curse you Mondays 8/7 Central!) without missing a beat. Of course, one night of primetime television takes eight hours to watch, but isn't it worth it in the end? "I love you, honey, I should be done here by two am!"

What Annie is thankful for

30 RockThanksgiving is more than a time when families force members to tolerate each other for a few hours to get through a meal with minimal bloodshed. Oh, no. It's so much more: Thanksgiving is when TV Squad does these nifty lists of what we bloggers are thankful for in the TV world. My list will never be complete, because far into the new year, I will continue to think of the thousands of tiny things that should belong here. Of course, I don't have the time, space, or energy to make a thousand-item list, so an 8-point piece will have to do.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving Day, you wonderful people, and don't forget your stretchy pants.
