What’s on TV for Thanksgiving 2021? Here’s a rundown of what’s on and when it’s on.
Thanksgiving 2021 is approaching, and sports, as you might assume, are dominating the network TV schedules. This year, thanks to CBS, NBC, and Fox, you can watch football from 9:30 a.m. until 11:35 p.m., if you want to — and many families across the United States are likely doing exactly that.
The networks, on the other hand, are serving up a weird menu of counterprogramming. The Magic Maker, a Thanksgiving special on NBC, features magician Adam Trent helping to make people’s lives a bit more magical, such as by assisting a soldier in reuniting with his family after serving overseas.
The National Dog Show is also on the network for dog lovers all over the world. CBS, on the other hand, is airing reruns of comedy shows, while Fox is broadcasting Major League Soccer.
The Thanksgiving Day Parade, another Thanksgiving classic, will be carried live on ABC and CBS beginning at 9 a.m., with NBC rebroadcasting it later in the day.
This Thanksgiving, here’s what you can watch on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox for those moments when you need a break from talking to that family member.
